question
Write the definition of a method powerTo, which receives two parameters. The first is a double and the second is an int. The method returns a double. If the second parameter is negative, the method returns zero. Otherwise it returns the value of the first parameter raised to the power of the second parameter.

question
Given that a method receives three parameters a, b, c, of type double, write some code, to be included as part of the method, that determines whether the value of "b squared" - 4ac is negative. If negative, the code prints out the message "no real solutions" and returns from the method

question
Given that a method receives three parameters a, b, c, of type double, write some code, to be included as part of the method, that checks to see if the value of a is 0; if it is, the code prints the message "no solution for a=0" and returns from the method.

Given a variable x of type double that has been given a value, write a statement that invokes printStars passing x as an argument. Assume that printStars is defined in the same class that calls it.
printStars(x);
question
Assume that x is a variable that has been declared as an int and been given a value. Assume that twice is a method (in the same class as the caller) that receives a single integer parameter and returns twice its value. (So if you pass 7 to twice it will return 14. Thus the expression twice(7) has the value 14. Write an expression whose value is eight times that of x without using the standard Java arithmetic operators (*,+, etc.). Instead, use calls to twice to accomplish this. In this exercise you must write this as a single expression-- you must not write any statements. Also, you may only use the twice() function-- no other functions or operators.
twice(twice(twice(x)))
question
Assume that x is a variable that has been declared as an int and been given a value. Assume that oneMore is a function that receives a single integer parameter and returns a value that is one greater than its argument. (So if you pass 7 to oneMore it will return 8. Thus, the expression oneMore(9) has the value 10. Write an expression whose value is four more than x without using the standard Java arithmetic operators (*,+, etc.). Instead, use calls to oneMore to accomplish this. In this exercise you must write this as a single expression-- you must not write any statements. Also, you may only use the oneMore function-- no other functions or operators.
oneMore(oneMore(oneMore(oneMore(x))))
question
max is a method that accepts two int arguments and returns the value of the larger one. Two int variables, population1 and population2, have already been declared and initialized. Write an expression (not a statement!) whose value is the larger of population1 and population2 by calling max. Assume that max is defined in the same class that calls it.
max(population1,population2)
question
max is a method that accepts two int arguments and returns the value of the larger one. Four int variables, population1, population2, population3, and population4 have already been declared and initialized. Write an expression (not a statement!) whose value is the largest of population1, population2, population3, and population4 by calling max. Assume that max is defined in the same class that calls it.
max(max(population1, population2), max(population3, population4))
question
Write the definition of a method printDottedLine, which has no parameters and doesn't return anything. The method prints to standard output a single line (terminated by a newline) consisting of five periods.
public static void printDottedLine (){ System.out.println("....."); }
question
Write the definition of a method printGrade, which has a char parameter and returns nothing. The method prints on a line by itself the message string Grade: followed by the char parameter (printed as a character) to standard output. Don't forget to put a new line character at the end of your line.
question
Write the definition of a method printAttitude, which has an int parameter and returns nothing. The method prints a message to standard output depending on the value of its parameter. If the parameter equals 1, the method prints disagree If the parameter equals 2, the method prints no opinion If the parameter equals 3, the method prints agree In the case of other values, the method does nothing. Each message is printed on a line by itself.
public static void printAttitude ( int x ){ if ( x == 1 ){ System.out.println ( "disagree" ) ; } if ( x == 2 ){ System.out.println ( "no opinion" ) ; } if ( x == 3 ){ System.out.println ( "agree" ) ; } }
question

public static void printLarger (int x,int y){ int z = Math.max(x,y); System.out.println(z); }
question
Write the definition of a method dashedLine, with one parameter, an int. If the parameter is negative or zero, the method does nothing. Otherwise it prints a complete line terminated by a newline to standard output consisting of dashes (hyphens) with the parameter's value determining the number of dashes. The method returns nothing.
public void dashedLine (int a){ if (a>0){ int i; for (i=1;i<=a;i=i+1){ System.out.print("-"); } System.out.println(""); } }
question
Write a method max that has two string parameters and returns the larger of the two.

question
Write a method min that has three string parameters and returns the smallest.
public String min (String aString, String bString, String cString) { if (aString.compareTo(bString) < 0 && aString.compareTo(cString) < 0) { return aString; } else if (bString.compareTo(cString) < 0 && bString.compareTo(aString) < 0) { return bString; } else { return cString; } }
question
Write a method, makeSubjectLine, that gets a String argument and returns the same String but with "Subject: " in front of it. So if the argument is "Are you going to the show?" the method returns "Subject: Are you going to the show?".
public String makeSubjectLine(String text) { return "Subject: " + text; }
question
Write a method, getEmailUserName, that is passed a String argument that is an email address and returns the user-name part. So if "mozart@salzberg.de" is passed, the method returns "mozart". Assume that the argument will always be a correctly formatted email address.
public String getEmailUserName (String aString) { return aString.substring(0, aString.indexOf("@")); }
question
Write a method, getEmailDomain, that is passed a String argument that is an email address and returns the domain name part. So if "mozart@salzberg.de" is passed, the method returns "salzberg.de". Assume that the argument will always be a correctly formatted email address.
public String getEmailDomain (String aString) { return aString.substring(aString.indexOf("@") + 1, aString.length()); }
question
Write a method, makeEmailAddress, that is passed two String arguments: the first is a username, like "leadbelly" and the second is a domain name, like "blues.com". The method returns an email address formed from joining these with an "@": "leadbelly@blues.com".
public String makeEmailAddress (String aString, String bString) { return aString + "@" + bString; }
question
Write a method, getFirstLine, that is passed a String argument and that returns the first line. (Recall that lines are terminated with the "n" character.) Assume that the argument contains at least one complete, newline-terminated line.
