Homework year 9

Good morning

Your homework is to complete the excel sheet I have emailed you yesterday and find out who killed Mr. burns.

RESOURCE – Who Shot Mr Burns – Excel 2007 Version




Good morning (GCSE Computer Science only),

Your homework is to complete the python club class. Be mindful we have made a few mistakes with the last program. Please TRY debugging the program yourself. This means that no one will copy Viet his work. There are many ways of solving the problem, so no one should have the same answers. This is about practicing your skills to become an independent programmer. A skill you will need to complete your controlled assessment.

Remember to use computational thinking to break down the problem into smaller steps. Show evidence in your exercise books of applying computational thinking as well as solving the problem.

Exercise Area of a Field

Create a program that reads the length and width of a farmer’s field from the user in feet. Display the area of the field in acres. Hint: There are 43,560 square feet in an acre.

Exercise Area of a Room

Write a program that asks the user to enter the width and length of a room. Once the values have been read, your program should compute and display the area of the room. The length and the width will be entered as floating point numbers. Include units in your prompt and output message; either feet or meters, depending on which unit you are more comfortable working with.

Exercise Bottle Deposits

In many jurisdictions a small deposit is added to drink containers to encourage people to recycle them. In one particular jurisdiction, drink containers holding one liter or less have a $0.10 deposit, and drink containers holding more than one liter have a $0.25 deposit. Write a program that reads the number of containers of each size from the user. Your program should continue by computing and displaying the refund that will be received for returning those containers. Format the output so that it includes a dollar sign and always displays exactly two decimal places

Exercise Tax and Tip

The program that you create for this exercise will begin by reading the cost of a meal ordered at a restaurant from the user. Then your program will compute the tax and tip for the meal. Use your local tax rate when computing the amount of tax owing. Compute the tip as 18 percent of the meal amount (without the tax). The output from your program should include the tax amount, the tip amount, and the grand total for the meal including both the tax and the tip. Format the output so that all the values are displayed using two decimal places.
