Any tips on how to write pseudocode, just how to start would be helpful No C or visual python just pseudocode. I guess their is a difference. Help

Provide your analysis for the following problem statement: You need to write a program that would calculate the results for the multiplication table up from 1 to 100. (For example, 1X1, 1X2, 1X3 … 1X10, 2X1, 2X2 …. 10X2 … 10x10). Your program should print the output for each step and output a new line after 10 items. So the example output would be something like this Notice a new line appears after 10 steps:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

2 4 6 8 10 … 20

10 20 30 … 100

To write the new lines you can just use code similar to : write “new line”. Hint: You will probably use a nested repetition loop.

Your analysis should be clearly written and demonstrate your thought process and steps used to analyze the problem. Be sure to include what is the required output? What is the necessary input and how you will obtain the required output from the given input? Also, include your variable names and definitions. Be sure to describe any necessary formulas and sample calculations.

2. Provide your program design for the program you analyzed for printing the multiplication table. Be sure to describe the fundamental tasks (i.e., things your program must do) needed to solve the problem so you can use a modular design. Provide pseudocode of your overall design that includes the Main module and the order of the module calls, and a Hierarchy chart for the program . Finally, display the flow charts for each module. (FLOW CHARTS I CAN DO)

3. Prepare any input data (Test data) along with expected output for testing your program (Note: Programs may not always have both input and output data. Just provide test cases for your application). Your test data can be presented in the form of a table .

This is what I have but my prof want to know where is the rest. Im stumped. Please help.

for i is 1 to 10
for j is 1 to 10
write i * j + " "
next j
write new line

next, Im lost

The only thing I'd add is "next i"

One issue with "real" pseudocode vs "learning" pseudocode is the level of detail required. What you have would work for "real". Your professor is looking for thought process, maybe a little more detail.

So if its 1 to 100 would it look like this. There's got to be more.
for i is 1 to 10
for j is 1 to 10
write i * j + " "
next j
write new line

for i is 2 to 20
for j is 2 to 20
write i * j + " "
next j
write new line

for i is 3 to 30
for j is 3 to 30
write i * j + " "
next j
write new line
for i is 4 to 40
for j is 4 to 40
write i * j + " "
next j
write new line

for i is 5 to 50
for j is 5 to 50
write i * j + " "
next j
write new line

for i is 6 to 60
for j is 6 to 60
write i * j + " "
next j
write new line

for i is 7 to 70
for j is 7 to 70
write i * j + " "
next j
write new line

for i is 8 to 80
for j is 8 to 80
write i * j + " "
next j
write new line

for i is 9 to 90
for j is 9 to 90
write i * j + " "
next j
write new line

for i is 10 to 100
for j is 10 to 100
write i * j + " "
next j
write new line

---------- Post added 02-20-2012 at 12:01 AM ---------- Previous post was 02-19-2012 at 10:52 PM ----------

For my pass do my numbers change ie
for i is 1 to 10
for j is 1 to 10
write i * j + " "
next j
write new line

for i is 2 to 20
for j is 1 to 10
write i * j + " "
next j
write new line

for i is 3 to 30
for j is 1 to 10
write i * j + " "
next j
write new line

What does the j numeric value become or do it stay 1 to 10?

No!

for i is 1 to 10
for j is 1 to 10
write i * j + " "
next j
write new line
next i

OK
for i is 1 to 10
// inner loop
for j is 1 to 10
// outer loop
write i * j + " "
next j
write new line
next i

for i is 2 to 20
for j is 1 to 10
write i * j + " "
next j
write new line

Why are you doing for "i is 2 to 20"?

Hardheaded I guess. I get it 1-10 will take of all the numbers

Din't understand the question about for and to. This isn't correct pseudocode?

This will create your entire table:

for i is 1 to 10
// inner loop
for j is 1 to 10
// outer loop
write i * j + " "
next j
write new line
next i

Adding anything else makes no sense.
