problem #1 ~~~~~~~~~~ using the mid\$ statement, construct a program that will give the following output for any given string (ex. a\$="probability") probability robability obability bability ability bility ility lity ity ty y (* one thing to look for in judging the program is the use of the len(a\$), this insures that the contest has a general knowledge of good structure in that it would allow the program to work on any size of A\$ or rather any word *) PROBLEM #2 ~~~~~~~~~~ write an interactive program that will take in the length and width of a lot in feet and calculate the number of acreas in the lot. keeping in mind that there are 43,560 ft per acrea. output should be given to the screen and the printer. (* we found the most difficult part of this program is for the students to have passed algebra I or II successfully enough to write an equation to do the conversions necessary.this proved to be difficult for some of the contestants. i was rather disappointed in this, but..... *) problem #3 """""""""" with the following input data, calculate a discount of 15% off of each item and and then display the output with the name of the items followed bythe new price. input data - items price """""""""""" """""""" bread 1.05 coffee 3.23 dog food 12.99 cereal 4.23 (* etc..etc.. *) output data - Items discounted price """""""""""" """""""""""""""""" bread ##.## coffee dog food cereal (* this is a rather good program as it tests the students knowledge of how to use DATA statements and his ability at using the 'print using' statements. we had some really good solutions and some really bad solutions. Also the ability to calculate the discounted price in one line with out having to create 2 million variables to get it and then print out the amount of the discount rather than the 'new' price. *) .
