Individual: Coding a Program Containing if-then and switch
• PRG 420 Week Two Coding Assigment Text File (starter code for this
assignment that includes placeholders)
• PRG 420 Week Two Recommended Activity Text File (examples of how to
code a switch statement, an if-then-else statement, and how to
construct a string to display text onscreen)
For this assignment, you will apply what you learned in analyzing
Java™ code so far in this course by writing your own Java™ program.
The Java™ program you write should do the following:
• Accept user input that represents the number of sides in a polygon.
Note: The code to do this is already written for you.
• If input value is not between 3 and 5, display an informative error
• If input value is between 3 and 5, use a switch statement to display a
message that identifies the correct polygon based on the number of
sides matching the input number (e.g., triangle, rectangle, or polygon)
Complete this assignment by doing the following:
1. Download the linked PRG 420 Week Two Coding Assigment Text File.
2. Read the file carefully, especially the explanatory comments of what
the existing code does.
3. Add your name and the date in the multi-line comment header.
4. Refer to the following linked PRG 420 Week Two Recommended Activity Text
File to see examples of how to code all of the Java™ statements (i.e.,
switch, println(), and if-then-else) you will need to write to complete this
5. Replace the following lines with Java code as directed in the file:
• LINE 1
• LINE 2
6. Comment each line of code you add to explain what you intend the
code to do.
7. Test and modify your Java™ program until it runs without errors and
produces the results as described above.
Note: Refer to this PRG 420 Week's analyzing code assignment if you need help.
After you complete your assignment, zip your JAVA source (.java) file
and submit the ZIP file using the Assignment Files tab.
