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

**Background Information:**

In Chapter 4, we explore algorithms. An algorithm is a march-by-march arrangement of carrying out a act to acheive a desired consequence. In this vital-force, we procure explore an algorithm that allows us to ascertain the day of the week on which a point bound occured. As you perceive, the day of the week on which a bound occurs varies from year to year. One of the circumstanceors that affects the arrival of days of the week is whether or not a year happens to be a jump year. In manage to use the algorithm, you procure scarcity to perceive about jump years.

As explained on page 176 of your Mathematical Ideas textbook, "In open, if a year is separable (evenly) by 4, it is a jump year. However, there are litigious. Antiquity years, such as 1800 and 1900, are not jump years notwithstanding the circumstance that they are separable by 4. Furthermore, an qualification to the qualification, a antiquity year that is separable by 400 (such as the year 2000) is a jump year." Since none of the years overhead are antiquity years, you can use the divisibility by 4 arrangement to particularize if a jump year is confused, or, for a liberal schedule of jump years from 1800 to 2400, you can mark the Kalendar-365 Jump Years website. Your rejoinder to item 1 is the calculate of days in the year you chose.

**Your job is to thrive the marchs in the algorithm to particularize the day of the week on which one of the thriveing great 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 antiquity are particularized by the thriveing considerations.

The thriveing consideration contains the marchs for the algorithm in the left support and an model in the lawful support. The model is the bound **October 10, 1942**.

Step 1 Obtain the thriveing five calculates 1. The calculate formed by the latest two digits of the year 2. The calculate in the foregoing march separated by 4 after a while the leavings ignored 3. The month key from the consideration overhead 4. The day of the month 5. The antiquity key from the consideration overhead | Example 42 10 1 10 0 |

Step 2 Add the five calculates from March 1 | 63 |

Step 3 Divide the sum in March 2 by 7 and keep the leavings | 0, accordingly 63/7=9 after a while no leavings |

Step 4 Ascertain the day of the week proximate to the leavings in the day key consideration | Saturday |

**INSTRUCTIONS:** To get liberal confidence for this vital-force, elect one of the thriveing truthful bounds, thrive 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 bound that you chose, complete the thriveing consideration.

Step 1 Obtain the thriveing five calculates 1. The calculate formed by the latest two digits of the year 2. The calculate in the foregoing march separated by 4 after a while the leavings ignored 3. The month key from the consideration overhead 4. The day of the month 5. The antiquity key from the consideration overhead | Results ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ |

Step 2 Add the five calculates from March 1 | ___ |

Step 3 Divide the sum in March 2 by 7 and keep the leavings | ___ |

Step 4 Ascertain the day of the week proximate to the leavings in the day key consideration | _____________ |

2. Create a support to the Discussion Board after a while the bound you chose as the Material of your support.

(for model, the material of your support effectiveness be: "*Assassination of John F. Kennedy - November 22, 1963"*)

3. Copy and paste your consideration after a while the marchs you thriveed and the consequences support into your support.

4. Submit your support. Be believing to assent to the line so that you procure be notified if anyone replies to your support.
