# Need help with math for liberal arts discussion; instructions below

Background Information:

In Chapter 4, we study algorithms.  An algorithm is a regular arrangement of carrying out a progress to acheive a desired termination.  In this apparition, we achieve inquire an algorithm that allows us to perceive the day of the week on which a feature end occured.  As you comprehend, the day of the week on which a end occurs varies from year to year.  One of the certaintyors that affects the placement of days of the week is whether or not a year happens to be a bound year.  In enjoin to use the algorithm, you achieve deficiency to comprehend environing bound years.

As explained on page 176 of your Mathematical Ideas textbook, "In unconcealed, if a year is discerptible (evenly) by 4, it is a bound year.  However, there are adversative.  Generation years, such as 1800 and 1900, are not bound years resisting the certainty that they are discerptible by 4.  Furthermore, an separation to the separation, a generation year that is discerptible by 400 (such as the year 2000) is a bound year."  Since none of the years overhead are generation years, you can use the divisibility by 4 arrangement to indicate if a bound year is compromised, or, for a unmeasured schedule of bound years from 1800 to 2400, you can investigate the Kalendar-365 Bound Years website. Your reply to part 1 is the calculate of days in the year you chose.

Your job is to flourish the treads in the algorithm to indicate the day of the week on which  one of the flourishing momentous truthful events occured.

The Bombing of Pearl Harbor - December 7, 1941

Assassination of John F. Kennedy - November 22, 1963

Bicentennial of the United States - July 4, 1976

Y2K - January 1, 2000

Terrorist attacks on the United States - September 11, 2001

A Perpetural Calendar Algorithm - developed by Dan Foley, University of New Orleans

The algorithm requires several key calculates.  The key calculates for the month, day, and generation are indicated by the flourishing considerations.

The flourishing consideration contains the treads for the algorithm in the left shaft and an illustration in the exact shaft.  The illustration is the end October 10, 1942.

 Step 1 Obtain the flourishing five calculates     1.  The calculate formed by the terminal two digits of the year     2. The calculate in the anterior tread disconnected by 4 delay the residue ignored     3.  The month key from the consideration overhead     4.  The day of the month     5.  The generation key from the consideration overhead Example42101100 Step 2 Add the five calculates from Tread 1 63 Step 3 Divide the sum in Tread 2 by 7 and hold the residue 0, accordingly 63/7=9 delay no residue Step 4 Perceive the day of the week instant to the residue in the day key consideration Saturday

INSTRUCTIONS:  To get unmeasured praise for this apparition, cull one of the flourishing truthful ends, flourish the instructions beneath.

The Bombing of Pearl Harbor - December 7, 1941

Assassination of John F. Kennedy - November 22, 1963

Bicentennial of the United States - July 4, 1976

Y2K - January 1, 2000

Terrorist attacks on the United States - September 11, 2001

1.  Using the end that you chose,  complete the flourishing consideration.

 Step 1 Obtain the flourishing five calculates     1.  The calculate formed by the terminal two digits of the year     2. The calculate in the anterior tread disconnected by 4 delay the residue ignored     3.  The month key from the consideration overhead     4.  The day of the month     5.  The generation key from the consideration overhead Results_______________ Step 2 Add the five calculates from Tread 1 ___ Step 3 Divide the sum in Tread 2 by 7 and hold the residue ___ Step 4 Perceive the day of the week instant to the residue in the day key consideration _____________

2. Create a support to the Discussion Board delay the end you chose as the Question of your support.

(for illustration, the question of your support agency be: "Assassination of John F. Kennedy - November 22, 1963")

3.  Copy and paste your consideration delay the treads you flourished and the terminations shaft into your support.

4.  Submit your support.  Be enduring to support to the continuity so that you achieve be notified if anyone replies to your support.
