sample problems

1. Write a program which allows the user to enter their age. The program should then print either "You are
still young" or "You are getting old" depending on whether the person's age is greater than 100 or not.

2. Write a program in which the user can enter two numbers (integers). If both numbers are zero
then print the message "Two zeros". If the numbers are not both zero, then print either "FIRST" or
"SECOND" depending on which number is bigger. If the numbers are the same (but not both zero)
then print "EQUAL"
3. Write a program which allows the user to enter a number of pollution readings (integers). As
each pollution reading is entered the program should test the reading and print one of the following
Comfortable (for readings less than 30)
Moderate (for readings less from 30 to 60 inclusive)
Dangerous (for readings over 60)
4. Write a program in which the user enters their salary. The program is to calculate and display
the amount of tax payable on this salary. Use the (simple) tax rule: Salaries under $4000 pay 2%
tax, salaries of $4000 or more pay 65% tax (!)

loop sample problems

1. Write a program which uses a while loop to print the
numbers from 200 to 1200 inclusive, on the screen.

2. Write a program which prints the multiples of 5 from 5 to

100. That is,

5 10 15 ... etc

3.Write a program which prints a sequence of triangular

numbers starting with 1 and ending with 36:

1 3 6 10 15 21 28 36

4. write a program that asks a user if he/she is cute. the

program will terminate if the user answers no. use a

5. write a program that counts the number of characters

entered until the user answers 'yes'.

6. count and display the number of vowels entered by a user.

the program will end when the user answers 'yes'.
7. Write a program which allows the user to enter a number of
salaries. As each salary is entered, the tax payable on that
and the net salary (after tax) should be calculated and
printed on the screen. The tax payable should also be
accumulated into a total.
When the user enters any salary which is less than zero,
the program should display the total tax and then terminate.

For the purpose of this problem, assume that tax is

calculated using the rules:

Salaries from $0 to $4000: no tax payable

Salaries from $4001 to $34999: tax at 30%

Salaries $35000 or above: tax at 48%
