a new batch of Freshman enter college and post their homework questions on CP for us to answer. Smile | :)



Two things I find interesting / surprising:

That C++ seems abundantly in use at the college level. Confused | :confused: I haven't had to touch that professionally since 2008. Big Grin | :-D

And, that in my whole career (and I'm an old dude), I've never had to figure out the prime numbers between 1 and a google. Why do colleges choose to have young developers solve such abstract problems? Would it not serve the [business] world better to have them work on practical issues?
