    Answer it

    Instructions:  The following programming problem can be solved by a program that uses three basic tasks-Input Data, Process Data, and Output Results. To process the data, it uses loops, arrays, decisions, accumulating, counting, searching and sorting techniques. Use notepad++ to design a suitable program to solve this problem.

    Problem Statement

    Assume the Scores array is parallel to the Players array (both arrays are below).

    Scores array

    Scores[0] = 198

    Scores[1] = 486

    Scores[2] = 651

    Scores[3] = 185

    Scores[4] = 216

    Scores[5] = 912

    Scores[6] = 173

    Scores[7] = 319

    Scores[8] = 846

    Scores[9] = 989

    Players Array

    Players[0] = "Joe"

    Players[1] = "Ann"

    Players[2] = "Marty"

    Players[3] = "Tim"

    Players[4] = "Rosy"

    Players[5] = "Jane"

    Players[6] = "Bob"

    Players[7] = "Lily"

    Players[8] = "Granny"

    Players[9] = "Liz"

    Write a looping program that presents the user with 3 options:

    1) Sort Output by Players

    2) Sort Output by Scores

    3) Exit Program

    When the first option is selected, sort the Players array in alphabetical order, keeping the Scores array parallel. Add code that determines the highest and lowest scores in the list. Include code to display each player’s score and name in the sorted order. Below the sorted list display the highest and lowest scores in the list and the name of the player who received that score. 

    Your sort by Player output display should look like this:

    Scores Sorted by Player:

    486     Ann

    173     Bob

    846     Granny

    912     Jane

    198     Joe

    319     Lily

    989     Liz

    651     Marty

    216     Rosy

    185     Tim

    -----------------------------------

    989     Highest Score by Liz

    173     Lowest Score by Bob

    When the second option is selected, sort the Scores array in numerical order, keeping the Players array parallel. Add code that determines the average score of the entire list. Include code to display each player’s score and name in the sorted order. Below the sorted list display the average of all scores in the list. Your sort by Scores output display should look like this:

    Players Sorted by Scores:

    173     Bob

    185     Tim

    198     Joe

    216     Rosy

    319     Lily

    486     Ann

    651     Marty

    846     Granny

    912     Jane

    989     Liz

    ---------------------------

    498     Average Score 

    You may use either the Bubble Sort or the Selection Sort algorithms.

    Option three is self explanatory. NEVER call "main" from inside your program. Use a loop that keeps your program running until the user chooses option 3.

    Round the Average score to the nearest whole number, as shown in the output example above.

    You MUST use Modular Programming techniques by using Submodules in your program. Your "main" module should not be very large. Again, NEVER call "main" from inside your program. Also, do not use "recursion" in this program (submodules that call themselves). You are only allowed to use looping techniques to repeat sections of your submodules.

    You may NOT "hard code" the numbers for highest and lowest scores. Nor simply sort the array by score and use the lowest and highest indexes. These must be discovered through algorithm that will work on an unsorted array. NOR may you "hard code" the number for the average score. Accumulate the scores in a loop then calculate the average. If the array data is changed, the Hi/Low/Avg scores should automatically be found or calculated with the new data.

    Hard-code the values of the arrays into your program. Do NOT ask the user to input the values

     

    Sorry for lengthy post: I just need help creating two input files for the Players and Scores arrays and applying them to my program.

    Thank you in advance kind person(s).
