HW 6

• Problem 1: The Mudder’s Meander

• Problem 2: throwing darts at pi

(0.5)

You’ll need to write (and use) the method:

1.0

(0.5,0.5)

public static boolean throwAndCheckDart()

1.0

• Problem 3: Flesch readability score

You’ll need to write (and use) 2 methods:

public static int numSyllables(String word)

public static boolean isVowel(char c)

Problem: to determine the readability of text

The cow is of the bovine ilk . One end is moo the other milk !

• 14 words (don’t count the punctuation marks!)

• 2 sentences (do count the punctuation marks!)

• 16 syllables (“bovine” and “other” are the two-syllable words)

206.835 - 84.6*(syllables/word) - 1.015*(words/sentence)

206.835 - 84.6*(16/14) - 1.015*(14/2)

watch out!

Handling input

code

user input

while (true)

{

String w = H.nw();

if (w.equals(“END”))

break;

// do all processing here

}

The cow is of the bovine ilk . One end is moo the other milk ! END

punctuation will ALWAYS be separated from text

H.nw() handles all whitespace as word separators. Newlines are not different than spaces.

the text will end with the word “END” (and it will appear nowhere else!)

H.nw() will return each space-separated String as a word.

counting words, sentences?

main

public static void main(String[] args)

{

while (true)

{

String w = H.nw();

if (w.equals(“END”))

break;

}

}

// get each word in turn - using nextWord()

// stop when END is seen

// Stage 1: simply count up the # of Strings

and print out the total @ the end

// distinguish REAL words from “.” “!” “?”

// Stage 2: count up the # of words + sents.

print out both totals @ the end

// count the syllables of each word

// Stage 3: take in SINGLE words and print

the number of syllables in each

Syllables

What’s a syllable ?

aeiouyAEIOUY

Basically, a syllable is a cluster of 1 or more vowels in a word.

vowel

emerge

the

Put another way, a syllable is

• any vowel that starts a word, plus

• any vowel that follows a consonant

except

• a lone e at the end of the word

But above all, every word must count as at least 1 syllable!

public static int numSyllables(String word)

simile

Wrapped

bungee

Yes

beautifully

Sequoia

What are some (other) English words for which this syllable algorithm is incorrect?

Checking for vowels

public static boolean isVowel(char c)

How would this get used to check for a vowel?

How would this get used to check for a consonant?

Counting Syllables

public static int numSyllables(String word)

Easy as p

Visualize:

0. The user specifies how many darts to throw.

// get numDarts from user

// use a for loop to throw that many darts

// keep track of how many hits we get

// after all the darts, estimate p

1. The user specifies how accurately to estimate pi.

// get tolerance from user

// start throwing darts

// keep track of # of hits and # of darts!

// estimate p each time

// continue while we are OUTSIDE the tol.

The Mudd Meander…

public static void main(String[] args)

{

H.pl(“How many steps?”);

int W = H.ni(); // get width (W) from the user

int p = 0; // the student’s initial position is 0

while ( Math.abs(p) < W )

{

p = p + (int)(3*Math.random())-1; // update position

printPosition(p,W); // print one line

}

}

public static void printPosition(int p, int W)

{

}
