## Description

#Part A

Build a simple calculator for runners to determine how long it will take to run a distance.

1. Ask the user how far she/he will run;

2. Ask the user to enter the desired pace in minutes per mile or kilometer;

3. Calculate how long it will take the user to complete the run; and

4. Print the results.

For simplicity, seconds can be expressed as decimals, for example, 7.5 can be used for 7 minutes 30

seconds.

Output example (if you’ve coded it correctly, your output should look something like this):

How far will you run? 13.1

How fast will you run (please enter decimal, like 7.5 for 7:30 pace)? 7.25

It will take you 94.975 minutes to run 13.1

#Part B

Frequently in business, we want to calculate the future value of an investment or loan after interest has

compounded. The equation to do this is:

Where A is the future value,

P is the principal (initial amount invested or borrowed)

r is the annual rate of interest as a decimal

n is the number of times the interest rate compounds per year

t is the term of the loan or the number of years before it is repaid

We want to build a calculator that will:

1. Ask the user to input the values for the variables above;

2. Perform the calculation; and

3. Print the following string to the user:

In [t] years, at the interest rate of [r] compounded [n] times per year, the initial amount

of [P] will be worth [A]

Example:

In 5 years, at the interest rate of 5% compounded 4 times per year, the initial amount of

$5000.00 will be worth $6410.19

Note that the figures in this string have been formatted to include only two decimals and a dollar

symbol.

You can check the results of your script by using an online future value calculator, like this one. If you do

so, leave the annual addition amount at 0 and select ‘start’ as the ‘Make additions at’ option.

Output Example:

Please enter principle:

4000

Please enter annual interest rate (example 5.2 for 5.2%):

5.2

Please enter the term in years:

5

Please enter number of times the interest will compound per year:

365

In 5.0 years, at the interest rate of 5.2% compounded 365 times per year, the initial amount of

$4,000.00 will be worth $5,187.62.

Extra challenge:

If this assignment was easy, you can also calculate the amount paid to interest. Extra challenges are not

necessary to receive full credit on homework and labs.

Extra Challenge Output example:

In 5.0 years, at the interest rate of 5.2% compounded 365 times per year, the initial amount of

$4,000.00 will be worth $5,187.62. $1,187.62 will be paid in interest.
