A file of student records contains name, gender (M or F), age

Resolved Question:

A file of student records contains name, gender (M or F), age (in years) and marital status (single or married) for each student. Design an algorithm that will read through the file and calculate the numbers of married men, single men, married women and single women. Print these numbers on a student summary report. If any single men are over 30 years of age, print their names and ages on a separate eligible bachelors report. Write a pseudocode for this problem.

HelloCustomer Thank you for your question.

Do you only need pseudocode for this problem?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Hello Clayton. Thank you for responding.

I need a pseudocode and in addition, a corresponding flowchart. It would be very nice to have both of those. But if it is too much, don't worry about the flowchart, but it would be nice to have both.

Thanks again! I appreciate everything!
Expert:  Clayton replied 4 years ago.
I believe the following will accomplish the requirements listed above. Unfortunately, I don't have the right software for flowcharting, but if you have any questions or want me to take a look at it, please let me know.

int marriedMen = 0
int singleMen = 0
in marriedWomen = 0
int singleWomen = 0

List bachNames
List bachAges

studentFile = OpenFile(PATH)

While !EndOfFile(studentFile)
dataLine = NextLine(studentFile)

status = GetStatus(dataLine)
sex = GetSex(dataLine)

if status == "married" then
if sex == "F"
marriedWomen = marriedWomen + 1
else if sex = "M"
marriedMen = marriedMen + 1
else if status = "single" then
if sex = "F" then
singleWomen = singleWomen + 1
else if sex = "M" then
singleMen = singleMen + 1

age = GetAge(dateLine)
if age > 30 then
bachNames.Append(GetName(dataLine)
bachAges.Append(age)
Loop

CloseFile(studentFile)

Print "++Student Report++"
Print "Single Men: ", singleMen
Print "Single Women: ", singleWomen
Print "Married Men: ", marriedMen
Print "Married Women: ", marriedWomen
Print "-------------------------------"
Print "++Eligible Bachelors Report++"
PrintEach bachNames, bachAges

Since the indentations don't come across to great in the post, you can download the code in a text file from http://tinyurl.com/yllag6h.

Hello! Thanks for sending the pseudocodes! Now that I look at it, and see it is more complex than I thought. I know I said I did not really need it, but now I see I do. Is there any way you can do a flowchart?

Do you have Word?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Yes, I do have Word.

Ok, this file should give you a good idea of how it should look. Dashed lines indicate the false condition: http://tinyurl.com/ygbaryq
