Lab Assignment 04

Topic: Doubles
Source Code: doubles.cpp
Live Archive Ref#: 2787

Pre-lab Due:

Thursday, 16 February 2012, 10:00am
Submission Deadline: Friday, 17 February 2012, 11:59pm


Use of fixed-sized arrays

Collaboration Policy

The pre-lab requirement must be completed and submitted individually.

The remainder of the lab activity should be completed working in pairs. One person should submit the result, making sure that both partners' names are clearly identified in that submission.

Please make sure you adhere to the policies on academic integrity in this regard.

Pre-Lab Requirement

Read the complete problem description and then determine what the expected output should be if given the following input:

Prelab input: Prelab output:
2 4 8 1 32 64 16 0
4 3 5 7 9 11 18 15 17 19 21 23 25 27 8 0


As part of an arithmetic competency program, your students will be given randomly generated lists of from 2 to 15 unique positive integers and asked to determine how many items in each list are twice some other item in the same list. You will need a program to help you with the grading. This program should be able to scan the lists and output the correct answer for each one. For example, given the list

1 4 3 2 9 7 18 22

your program should answer 3, as 2 is twice 1, 4 is twice 2, and 18 is twice 9.

The input file will consist of one or more lists of numbers. There will be one list of numbers per line. Each list will contain from 2 to 15 unique positive integers. No integer will be larger than 99. Each line will be terminated with the integer 0, which is not considered part of the list. A line with the single number -1 will mark the end of the file. The example input below shows 3 separate lists. Some lists may not contain any doubles.

The output will consist of one line per input list, containing a count of the items that are double some other item.

Example input:Example output:
1 4 3 2 9 7 18 22 0
2 4 8 10 0
7 5 11 13 1 3 0


This should be an easy one, but it requires a two-stage process for each group. First, we suggest having an array of boolean values that can be used to "mark" which numbers are in the set. After initializing the array to be "empty" you can read the input and mark each number in the set. Once you have finished reading the group of numbers, a loop through the array can be used to count how many times a value and its double are in the set.

Warnings: There are two common pitfalls to avoid
