This is my homework programming class c++ intermedia:
i need to write a program that will check the validity of an account number that has been sent to the bank as part of its daily transactions, so the account number willbe nine digits long and the ningth digit (rightmost) can be calculated by either adding, subtracting, or multiplying all of the preceding digits and finding the rigthmost digit of the result. if the two rigthmost digits match, the account number is valid. In the operation code (first digit), 1 is addition, 2 is subtraction, and 3 is multiplication. any other digit in this position is incorrect.
First - this is homework, so the experts here are *forbidden* to do it for you.
I'm puzzled by your question as the details you give are the answer you want.
You have the nine digit number.
First digit. 1 is addition, 2 is subtraction, and 3 is multiplication. any other digit in this position is incorrect. (You now have a valid or invalid number)
Now you know what you need to do to get the total (add, subtract, multiply).
You now have the total - is the right most digit the same as the rightmost in the code. So you know if the code is valid or not.
Don't forget when str="149" that str[0] = '1', str[1] = '4', str[2] = '9' and also that character '4' - character '0' is the number 4

}
else
{
if (accountno[0]=='3')
totalmul = totalmul * (accountno[i]-'0');
else
totalsum = totalsum + (accountno[i]-'0');
}
i = i + 1;
}while (i < 8);
}
// truncate the total sum or total multiplication to be able to validate the control digit
if (baddata == 0)
{
if (totalsum > 0)
totalcontrol = totalsum /10;
else
totalcontrol = totalmul /10;
I think my comments helped in solving the original question and I provided relevant comment to improve the code in response to the subsequent question.
