ALGORITHMS - PART 3

REPETITION/LOOP

CONTROL STRUCTURE

- An algorithm with get/give, assignment and conditional branch instructions processes one set of data (givens) each time it is executed
- What would we do if we needed to process multiple sets of data?
- To calculate the grades for 150 students (instead of a grade for one student)
- To determine the payroll for all employees

- We could execute the algorithm multiple times or once, as in the following example…..

- Write an algorithm to find the sum of 100 numbers.
- Name: SUM100
- Givens:N1, N2, N3, … N99, N100
- Change:None

- Results: Total
- Intermediates: None
- Definition: Total := SUM100(N1, N2, N3… N100)
- ---------------------------------
- Method
Get N1

Get N2

…

Get N100

Let Total = N1 + N2 + N3 + … + N99 + N100

Give Total

- What would we do for 1,000,000 numbers?

- Clearly, we need a better way
- We need an instruction that
- Executes a block of instructions multiple times, and
- After each execution, tests to see if the block of instructions should be executed again

- This instruction is called a loop (repetition) control instruction

- There are four parts to a loop
- Setup
- The conditions to be set before we enter the loop

- Test (included in the loop control instruction)
- The Boolean test to determine if the loop should be executed again (the same type of test used in a conditional branch instruction)

- Instruction Block
- The instructions that are to be executed repeatedly

- Change
- A change to one of the variables in the test so that we can exit the loop

- Setup

- Usually we place the test before the instructions that are to be executed
- However, occasionally, we need to execute the instructions before we test; in this case, we place the test after the instructions that are to be executed repeatedly

After the Set Up, the Test is evaluated, if its value is true, instruction1, instruction2,… are executed, and Test is evaluated again. Instruction1, Instruction2 are repeated as long as the Test is true.

When the value of Test becomes false, the Loop ends and the instruction following the Loop is executed.

After the Set Up, instruction1, instruction2, … are executed and then Test is evaluated, if its value is true, instruction1, instruction2,… are executed and the Test is evaluated again.

When the value of Test becomes false, the Loop ends and the instruction following the Loop is executed.

- Since a loop works on a block of instructions, any set of instructions can be repeated, not just assignment and conditional branch instructions
- For example, multiple Gets
Loop

Get X

- Or multiple Gives

- Write an algorithm to find the sum of 100 numbers. Place the test at the beginning of the loop.

- Loop Test
- Continue until 100 numbers have been read (Count <100)

- Change
- Let Count = Count + 1

- Instructions
- Get N
- Let Total = Total + N

- Sometimes, a simple test is not adequate for either a conditional branch (If) or repetition (loop) control structure.
- For more complicated tests, we use the Boolean operators
- AND
- OR
- NOT
- XOR

AND will return a TRUE only when both are TRUE

X | Y | X AND Y

---+---+---------

F | F | F

F | T | F

T | F | F

T | T | T

OR will return a TRUE when either is TRUE

X | Y | X OR Y

---+---+---------

F | F | F

F | T | T

T | F | T

T | T | T

NOT will change a TRUE to a FALSE or a FALSE to a TRUE

X | NOT(X)

XOR will return a TRUE when either is TRUE, but NOT BOTH

Homework

- In your homework (Lecture 9), you developed algorithms, and traces
- reversing the digits in a three digit number and adding that number to 500
- determining the eldest of 2 people
- calculating a sales commissionFor each of these questions, revise the algorithm to:
- Run the reversing algorithm multiple times until the user enters the value 999
- Run the eldest algorithm until the user indicates “no” to the question “Do you want to continue?”
- Run the sales commission algorithm for exactly 10 sales representatives

Develop an algorithm to assist a clerk in determining some statistics about students. For each student, she enters the name, gender (M or F), age and marital status (M or S). She wants to determine the number of married men, married women, single women and eligible bachelors (single men over 25). Each time she has completed entry of data for a student, the algorithm should give her a chance to indicate whether she has entered the data for all of the students.

Write an algorithm to determine the closing balance for a teller. The teller enters his opening balance and then a number of transactions. Deposits are entered as positive numbers and withdrawals are entered as negative numbers. He also needs to calculate the number of deposits and the number of withdrawals. The teller indicates that all transactions have been entered by entering a transaction with a value of 0.

Write an algorithm to calculate and display the total gross earnings, tax payable, medical deduction and net earnings for all employees.

The user will input the hours worked and the hourly rate of pay for each employee. The gross earnings for each employee can be calculated from this information.

The net earnings are calculated by subtracting the tax payable and medical deductions from the gross earnings. Tax payable is 20% of gross pay for the first $300, 30% for the next $200 and 40% thereafter. The medical deduction is calculated as 1% of gross pay.

The user will indicate that all employee information has been entered by entering hours worked as 999.
