Edit: this can run on DBPro but you will need to add the sync command

This is a little fun program than can guess your age, all you have to do is answer a few questions accurately and it will calculate your age, it should be very accurate.



For those interested in how the program is able to guess ages, try figuring it out before you look at the code

Cheers

Remainder: The number that is left over in a division in which one quantity does not evenly go into another. A remainder is never a decimal number(unless the numbers you were dividing were decimal numbers).

For DBPro it needs sync commands:


It works for me.

Wow !!
Amazing !!
First i forgot what a remainder was and put in random answers but then
when i went back to my math book and found out i answered it right and it actually showed me the correct answer!

To save other peoples time a Remainder is the whole number left over after you try to divide it for ex. 35 divided by 4 is 8 and the remainder is 3. If u multiply 4 x 8 = 32 and 4 x 9 = 36 so 36 is too high so we use 32 and u subtract the number from 35 so 35 - 32= 3 and thats how u get ur remainder .. its basically the number u get left over after dividing by what the program says.

your remainders would be 2, then 3, and then 2 as


23/3=7 R2
23/5=4 R3
23/7=3 R2

Can I remind people that this is the 20 Liners board and posting snippets on here that are greater than 20 lines long (Daemon?) are pointless.

Even more so if the required alterations are only a few seconds of extra work.

The whole point of the exercise is to show others how clever you are with how much you can cram into just 20 lines of code - not just post simple programs that really should be on the Code Snippets board.

And here is the DBP version in 20 lines since TDK isn't so happy about what was posted:

@TDK It was in 20 lines before. Remember the rules?

@draknir

That's true, there are a few rare numbers on whihc it won't work, inclduing really low number such as 0,1,2,3 and Im not sure about decimal numbers. However, it was made assuming hte people using and testing it will be between ages 10-100.

Nice progran. I first though it worked by getting the answers and eliminate all posible numbers. Nice, it guessed my age: 14 years.

Have a nice day

Why do people seem to think that I am unhappy? I'm only pointing out the blindingly obvious - that it makes no sense at all posting code snippets of more than 20 lines on a board specifically for programs of 20 lines or less! I didn't make the rule - I'm just repeating it - when I shouldn't really have to...

Quote: "@TDK It was in 20 lines before. Remember the rules?"


I do. If you read my post again, you'll see that it wasn't aimed at the poster of the original snippet but Daemon who posted the following 24 line snippet (and that's not counting the blank lines):



He obviously couldn't be bothered making it within the allowed 20 lines limit as it would have taken him what... all of 10 seconds to do so?

Hehe. I can't help but find that funny.

@Data, great program!
Also, i noticed that if you type your full age in as the remainder it guesses that number

I think the whole 20 line thing is completely pointless. It doesn't teach you to write efficient code, just to write a jumble of crap.
I wont be entering anything here thank you very much.

Some of you really aren't understanding what a remainder is. I am quite surprised at this as most computing languages (not BASIC) include a command called MOD() which will return a remainder, and it can be very useful.
A remainder occurs when a number cannot be divided into another number evenly. The value of the remainder is the original number minus the nearest lower number that CAN be divided evenly.
For example:
15 cannot be divided evenly into 6; but 12 can.
so 15/6 = 2 (12/6) remainder 3 (15-12).

Is that any clearer?

Here is my function to give Remainders (You could even use it in this program if you want )
I haven't fully tested it but it seems to work, all the numbers must be real# or it will return 0. Don't know why but that caused me a lot of hassle



My code finds the remainder in a different way to my explanation. Although it is easier for the human brain to use the "next even divider" a computer can do this. So what i have done is to take the decimal from the division and multiply it by the second number, if you think of this in equation terms (im sure you've all balanced equations at school) this action puts the decimal back onto the left side of the equation.
Aaah i cant explain very well

decimal = 0.?? number less than 1.

I think my programme proves that the programme by Data works for ages ranging from 0(?) to 104
