See the course FAQ file for the grade weighting factors. Assume labs are on a 0-12 scale, attendance is on a 0-8 scale, midterm #1 is scored on a 0-59 scale, midterm #2 on a 0-63 scale, and final exam on a 0-103 scale. There are 7 graded projects, each on a 0-20 scale, so you can just input a project total on a 0-140 scale. (For simplicity, ignore the bonus and extra-credit points.)

We can calculate the contribution of a given factor as follows:

contribution = percent * (factor/maximumFactor)

For example, suppose a student got 49/59 on midterm #1. This factor's contribution is 10 * (49/59), or 8.30508 points out of 100. If the student got a project total of 115/140, the projects contribute 35 * (115/140) or 28.75 points. The student's weighted sum is the sum of all 6 contributions. Do the calculations with double variables, to keep the fractional parts; display the result to two decimal places.

- a copy of this page as a problem specification
- a paper document (from a word processor or
*neatly*hand written) that presents the analysis, design, and test plan for your project - a printout of the listing (
`.txt`) file for your program in its "framework" first stage, with variables declared and comments inserted for the main algorithm steps, and showing no errors or warnings - a printout of the listing (
`.txt`) file for your program in its final stage - a printout of a turnin file of your test runs, showing that you tested the program according to the test plan

- 6 points -- analysis and design (including algorithm in structured English)
- 4 points -- test plan
- 6 points -- correct execution of program according to test plan
- 4 points -- layout and style of program source code
