write a program that takes the length and width of a rectangular

This answer was rated:

write a program that takes the length and width of a rectangular yard and the length and width of a rectangular house situated in the yard. Your program should compute the time required to cut the grass at the rate of two square feet a second.

First compute the area of the entire yard (L * W = A1). Then take the area of the house (HL * HW = A2). The yards area would then be A2 - A1 = YardArea.

 

If A1 = 5000 sq/ft and A2 = 2000 sq/ft then the yard's area would be (A2 - A1) or 3000 sq/ft.

 

If you can cut the grass at a rate of 2 sq ft a second then simply divide the yards area by 2. (i.e. 3000 / 2 = 1500 seconds or 25 minutes).

I need the specifics to write it into a C program. This is my first homework assignment and I am not understanding the syntax.

Yes, the specifics of the assignment will definitely help other experts assist you. So, its a C program. I can't write the program for you. However, you should have some text books (and internet) which should give you adequate instructions on obtaining values from user input (i.e. cin).

 

I apologize as I can't help much from this point forward. I'm no expert in C. My primary area of expertise is VB.Net. Good Luck.

Hi,

I'm Working On Your Question...
hi,
following is the code
//code starts here
#include<stdlib.h>
#include<stdio.h>
#include<conio.h>
long YardArea=0,HouseArea=0;
int YardLength=0,YardWidth=0,HouseLength=0,HouseWidth=0;
long GroundArea=0;
int TimeReqierd=0;
int GrassCutRate=2;
void main()
{
char inp[256];
clrscr();
printf("******Welcome To Grass Cutter******\n");
printf("please Enter the Length of Yard\n");
gets(inp);
YardLength= atoi(inp);
printf("please Enter the Width of Yard\n");
         gets(inp);
YardWidth=atoi(inp);
    printf("please Enter the Length of House\n");
         gets(inp);
HouseLength=atoi(inp);
   printf("please Enter the Width of House\n");
         gets(inp);
HouseWidth=atoi(inp);
HouseArea=HouseWidth *HouseLength ;
YardArea=YardWidth* YardLength;
GroundArea=YardArea-HouseArea;
   TimeReqierd=GroundArea/GrassCutRate;
printf("%s%d","Grass Area is ",GroundArea);
printf("%s%d seconds"," \n time Required To cut it is " ,TimeReqierd);
getchar();
}
//code ends here
