# – Program 3 – Fall 2011 – Long-Distance Calls CMPS 1043

```CMPS 1043 – Program 3 – Fall 2011 – Long-Distance Calls
Due: Wed., Oct. 5 – Thurs., Oct. 6
No problem solving steps turned in this time. I recommend you do them for your own benefit.
Problem Description
A long-distance carrier charges the following rates for telephone calls between the U.S. and Mexico:
Starting time of Call (minutes:seconds)
00:00 – 06:59 (midnight – 6:59 a.m.)
07:00 – 19:00 (7 a.m. – 7 p.m.)
19:01 – 23:59 (after 7 p.m. – before midnight)
Rate Per Minute
\$ 0.12
0.55
0.35
Given the starting time of a call and the length of the call in minutes, the cost for the call is to be
calculated. The time will be input as a decimal number. That is, 5:45 will be input as 5.45. You
MUST split this into the numeric “hour” component and the “minute” component and validate the
correct format of each one. When printing, you must print the time as 5:45, with the colon not the
period.
Use if statements, properly nested, to solve the problem. All I/O is to be file based.

Input Validation: You must check the StartTime after reading it in. That is, if the “hours” potion is
greater than 23 or if the minutes portion is greater than 59, then you should print the person’s name
followed by the work “ERROR.” Otherwise, you will print the total cost.
