
The USOC pays Olympic athletes who win
medals the following in prize money:



Gold \$25,000
Silver \$15,000
Bronze \$10,000

Calculating Olympic Prize Money

How much money did they pay?




Total (46/29/29) ***
Michael Phelps (4/2/0)
Missy Franklin (4/0/1)
Ryan Lochte (2/2/1)
*** Treats a team medal as one prize, not
multiple prizes.

Steps in solving this problem





Identify the prize money for each medal type
(constant over each athlete).
Obtain the number of gold, silver, and bronze
medals for the athlete (different for each athlete).
For each medal type, multiply the medal count
with it’s prize amount.
Sum these three values to get total money won
Display total amount of money won
4
We can do that !

Rules to Follow

Always have a header comment block with a


See “Resources” page for Homework Submission
Policy
Take care of line wrap


Good rule of thumb is not to have a line exceeding
60-70 characters
Can look at “Col” field at bottom of IDLE to see
where you are at

Rules to Follow

Put a comment on top of each chunk of code
for the human


Use a consistent style



# Get the input for number of medals from user
camelCase
c_style_naming
Use constants


Every time you have a literal number (like 25000)
GOLD_PRIZE_AMOUNT=25000
