Homework 3

Page 176, Questions 5.26 and 5.27

You must utilize the following two methods in your code to receive credit. If you do not use these methods you will not receive credite for 5.26 and 5.27:

int reverse(int n)

boolean isPrime(int n)

Distance Between Points

Write a method distance to calculate the distance between two points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2). All numbers and return values should be of type double. Incorporate this method into an application that enables the user to enter the coordinates of the points.

Table of Binary, Octal and Hexadecimal Numbers

Write a program that displays a table of the binary, octal, and hexadecimal equivalents of the decimal numbers in the range 1 through 256. The table should consist of 4 columns: Decimal, Binary, Octal, and Hex. Be sure all numbers are aligned in each column.


(1.5%) - Emirps
(1.5%) - Palindromic Primes
(1.5%) - Distance Between Points
(2.3%) - Table

Total: 6.8%

Homework 2

In this assignment you are to complete the following three (3) individual programs:


The factorial n! is defined for a positive integer n as:

n! = n x (n - 1) x ... 2 x 1

For example:

5! = 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 120

There is a special case, n = 0, in which:

0! = 1

Write a program that prompts a user for a value of n and then reports n!.

Greatest Common Divisor

The greatest common divisor of two numbers a and b is denoted GCD(a,b), and defined as the largest divisor common to both a and b. For example, GCD(3,6) = 3, GCD(25, 30) = 5, and GCD(7, 9) = 1. Write a program that prompts a user for a and b, and reports GCD(a,b).


A prime number p can be defined as a positive integer that is not divisible by any positive integers other than one (1) and itself (p). If a number p has positive divisors other than the numbers one (1) and p, it is said to be composite. Write a program that prompts the user for a value p, and then reports whether p is prime or composite.



(0.1%) Prompt user for n
(1.5%pts) Calculate and display the correct value of n!
(0.1pts) Display correct value for special case (n=0)


(0.1%) Prompt the user for a and b
(1.5%pts) Display the correct value of GCD(a,b)


(0.1%) Prompt the user for p
(2%) Correctly display whether p is prime or composite

Homework 1

In this assignment you are to write the following programs:

Character Conversion

Write a program that prompts the user to enter an integer within the range of ASCII values for an uppercase character. Your program should then output the corresponding ASCII character in both uppercase and lowercase. You can assume that the user will always enter in an ASCII code within the appropriate range. Use the console for all input and output.

Coin Calculator

Write a program that prompts the user for a monetary value and outputs the minimum number of coins needed to make the specified amount. For example, a user can enter 1.43 which corresponds to the monetary amount $1.43. Your program should then proceed to output the following:

Quarters: 5
Dimes: 1
Nickels: 1
Pennies: 3
Total Coins: 10

Use the JOptionPane for all input and output.

Reverse Number

Write a program that prompts the user for a 4-digit integer, and then displays the number in reverse. You should not use any String functions to perform the reverse. Use the console for all input and output.
