Review Topics


A. Loops and counting (5m)

  1. Write the letter and heading for this problem on your paper.
  2. Review loops and counting in lesson 5.1.6 .
  3. Complete the following problems and answer any questions:
    1. On paper, trace the following loop under the column headings showing both the value of i (including the initial value) and the terminal output for i in each iteration.
      for (int i = 2; i < 9; i = i + 2)
      {
          cout << i << endl;
      }
      
      i output

    2. What does the loop do?

      3. Prints the odd numbers from 1 to 9.
      4. Prints the even numbers from 2 to 8.
    3. The final value of i when the loop ends is ________.

Test Yourself (Optional)

  1. The values of the counter variable in the following for-loop are ________.
    for (i = 5; i <= 10; i++)
    
    1. i = 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11
    2. i = 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
    3. i = 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11
    4. i = 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
  2. The values of the counter variable in the following for-loop are ________.
    for (i = 10; i >= 5; i--)
    
    1. i = 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4
    2. i = 10, 9, 8, 7, 6
    3. i = 9, 8, 7, 6, 5
    4. i = 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5
  3. True or false: the last value of a counter variable makes the test condition evaluate to false and causes the loop to exit.

      2. Set the value of the last element to 42.
      3. Add the missing step so the for-loop prints all the array elements.
        for (int i = 0; i < _________ i++)
        {
            cout << a[i] << endl;
        }

C. Indefinite Loops (5m)

  1. Write the letter and heading for this problem on your paper.
  2. Review section 5.3.3: Processing a Sequence of Inputs.
  3. For the following code, on your paper trace the value of variable sum, including the initial value, and what is printed to the console if the user enters: 4, 5, -1, 7
    double sum = 0;
    cout << "Enter a number or 0 to exit: ";
    cin >> input;
    while (input >= 0) {
        cout << "So far, sum = " << sum << endl;
        sum = sum + input;
        cout << "Enter a number or 0 to exit: ";
        cin >> input;
    }
    cout << "Ending sum: " << sum << endl;
    
    sum output

  4. After tracing, circle the final value of sum.

Test Yourself (Optional)

  1. The first (initial) value of sum is ___.
  2. The last value of sum is ___.
  3. The while loop repeats this many times: ___.

D. Calling functions (4m)

  1. Write the letter and heading for this problem on your paper.
  2. Review section 7.4.6: Flow of Control for a Function Call.
  3. On your paper, write valid code that calls (invokes) each of the following functions. For those functions that return a value, assign the returned value to a variable of the correct data type. For example, we could call the function int foo(int bar) with
    int x = foo(42);
    
    1. void play()
    2. int addAmount(int amount)
    3. bool isCool(bool testValue)
    4. void printCompare(int x, int y, int z)
    5. double max(double x, double y)

Check Yourself (Optional)

  1. Every program starts executing at the start of the function named __________.
  2. True or false: when reaching a function call, the currently executing function stops and control jumps to the start of the called function.
  3. True or false: after a called function returns, control returns to the point in the code just after where it was called.

E. Defining functions (7m)

  1. Write the letter and heading for this problem on your paper.

  3. On your paper, create four columns with these headings:
    # Function name Return type Number of parameters
  4. On paper, write the question numbers (##), function name, return type, and number of parameters for the following functions under the column headings: (4m)
    1. void play()
    2. void addAmount(int amount)
    3. bool isCool(bool testValue)
    4. void compare(int x, int y, int z)
    5. bool isGreater(int number)
  5. Write a complete definition for a function named add that takes two parameters, sums the parameters and returns the sum as a type double.

    2. A default (no parameter) constructor that sets default values for all member variables.
    3. A constructor with two parameters, one for each member variable, that assigns the appropriate parameter to each member variable.
    4. A member function "read" that gets a value for each member variable from the user with appropriate prompts.
    5. An accessor function named "print" that displays the width, height and area of this Rectangle object to the terminal window.

    Do NOT write the implementation (definition) of the class functions at this time. Only write the function prototypes.
