Enter year: 1960 Enter month: 12 Enter day: 12 The day is Monday.
Assume that all the input values will be positive integers. The day will be in the range 1 through 31. The month will be in the range 1 through 12 where 1 is for January and 12 is for December. The year will be a four digit number in the range 1900 through 2100. Assume also that the user enters the correct date.
This algorithm was developed by Rev. Zeller. Let us define the quantities a, b, c, and d as follows:
Important: In our calendar, the year begins in January and ends in December. In the calendar, used in the algorithm, the year begins in March and ends in February. Your program should internally make the adjustment and not expect the user to know this. For example, if in our calendar we have January 2009 (month = 1 and year = 2009), the program will make the adjustment so that month = 11 and year = 2008. If you do not make the adjustment you will not get the right result.
For example, 31 July 1929, gives a = 5, b = 31, c = 29, and d = 19. Similarly, 3 January 1988, gives a = 11, b = 3, c = 87, and d = 19. Make sure you compute the values of a, b, c, and d for various dates by hand before you start coding the algorithm.
Now compute the following quantities:
r gives the day of the week. r = 0 represents Sunday, r = 1 represents Monday, and so on. Write a chained conditional to find the day of the week.
The program that you will be writing will be called Day.py. We will be looking at good documentation, design, and adherence to the coding convention discussed in class. You may use the same variable names used in the problem statement or come up with your own. Your file Day.py have the following header:
# File: Day.py # Description: # Student Name: # Student UT EID: # Course Name: CS 303E # Unique Number: # Date Created: # Date Last Modified:
Use the turnin program to submit your Day.py file. The proctors should receive your work by 11 PM on Tuesday, 01 Oct 2013. There will be substantial penalties if you do not adhere to the guidelines. The TA in charge of this assignment is Lee Thompson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
