# COMP 2710: Project 1 “Flow of Control” in C++

\$30.00

## Description

5/5 - (1 vote)

Goals:
• To learn how to implement the concept of “Flow of Control” in C++
• To write a very simple C++ program

## Description:

You have just purchased a stereo system that cost \$1000 on the following credit plan: no
down payment, an interest rate of 18% per year (and hence 1.5% per month), and
monthly payments of \$50.

The monthly payment of \$50 is used to pay the interest, and
whatever is left is used to pay part of the remaining debt. Hence, the first month you pay
1.5% of \$1000 in interest. That is \$15 in interest. The remaining \$35 is deducted from your
debt, which leaves you with a debt of \$965.00. The next month you pay interest of 1.5%
of \$965.00, which is \$14.48. Hence, you can deduct \$35.52 (which is \$50–\$14.48) from
the amount you owe.

Write a program that will tell you how many months it will take you to pay off this loan in
particular and any loan in general. Your program also needs to calculate the total amount
of interest paid over the life of any loan. Use a loop to calculate the amount of interest
and the size of the debt after each month.

Your program must output the monthly
amount of interest paid and remaining debt. Use a variable to count the number of loop
iterations and hence the number of months until the debt is zero. You may want to use
other variables as well.

The last payment may be less than the monthly payment,
therefore should be calculated based on the amount left in balance (instead of monthly
payment). And do not forget the interest. If you owe \$50, then your monthly payment of
\$50 will not pay off your debt, although it will come close. One month’s interest on \$50 is
only 75 cents.

Here is a sample dialog (where the user input is depicted as Bold, but you do not need
to display user input in bold.):
Loan Amount: 1000
Interest Rate (% per year): 18
Monthly Payments: 50

Your program’s output should match the style of the sample output (including a left
lined-up style).

In what follows, you find a second case used to test the correctness of your program.

It takes 24 months to pay off the loan.
Total interest paid is: \$197.83
Loan Amount: 2000
Interest Rate (% per year): 12
Monthly Payments: 80

Special Cases:
1. Please think about how to deal with the last payment, which is smaller than
regular payment. For example, in the above table, the regular payments are
\$80.00 whereas the last payment is only 72.98.

2. Your program needs to ensure that regular payments are larger than any
monthly interest. For example, in the above amortization table, your program
must test if the regular monthly payment (i.e., \$80.00) is larger than the monthly
interest (e.g., \$20.00 in the first month), otherwise your program should ask for a
larger monthly payment.

3. Make sure that the loan amount and monthly payment are positive numbers
and interest rate is non-negative number.

4. If you do not address the above issues, your program may not terminate in some
special cases and you will lose marks. See the example below:

### Programming Environment:

Write a short program in C++. Compile and run it using AU server (no matter what kind
of text editor you use, please make sure your code could run on AU server, the only test
bed we accept is AU server).

Requirements:
Loan Amount: 2000
Interest Rate (% per year): 49.2
Monthly Payments: 80

containing your name, Auburn UserID, filename, and how to compile your code.
Also describe any help or sources that you used (as per the syllabus).

2. (5 points) Your source code file should be named as
“project1_LastName_UserID.cpp”. (e.g. project1_Liu_tzl0031.cpp)
Note: You will not lose any point if Canvas automatically changes your file name
(e.g. project1_LastName_UserID-2.cpp) due to your resubmissions.

3. (40 points) No compilation error and no warning messages.

4. (10 points) Usability of your program (e.g., input and output).

5. (40 points) Quality of your source code.
You will lose points if you: do not use the specific program file name, or do not have a
comment block on EVERY program you hand in. You will lose at least 40 points if there
are compilation errors or warning messages when we compile your source code.

Deliverables:
and how to compile your code.
• Submit yoursource code file named as “project1_LastName_UserID.cpp” through
the Canvas system.

• For more than one submission, the system will automatically add a hyphen to your
file name. i.e. project1_LastName_UserID-#.cpp. Please ignore this issue.

Late Submission Penalty:
• No late submission is allowed. After the 11:59pm on the due day, you can’tsubmit
