New here, stupid question

5 posts in this topic

First of all, I would like to apologize for this thread, please accept my apologies.

I'm a student and I've been given the task to write about AutoIt and to code a program with it. (We study C++, this is the first time I've heard of this language)

The task is " Input an integer number n and output the sum: 1+22+32+...+n2. Use input validation for n to be positive. "

I would be more than grateful if somebody can code the program for me and again, I am terribly sorry for the nuisance.

@JohnOne
He is the student :D

The teacher has given to him ( or to the class ), the homework he described to us...
Another question rises spontanueous...

Why a teacher should give to his/her students an homework without any references? :/
 

I'm confused too :D

I will always thank you for the time you spent for me.
I'm here to ask, and from your response, I'd like to learn.
By my knowledge, I can help someone else, and "that someone" could help in turn another, and so on.

As you are a student, and tasked with this assignment, it would be cheating on your part to have someone "code the program for you". If you are too lazy to code a simple script in AutoIt, you will be useless as a C++ developer. No one here is going to help you cheat.

We will, however, point you in the right direction - but you have to put forth the effort. Look in the help file under Language Reference - Operators. It should give you all you need to move forward with simple math functions.

Since you're a student, you must have learned long ago (or are able to find by yourself and prove correct) a simple cubic formula for the sum of the squares of the first n natural integers. That's fairly trivial stuff.

Implementing this simple cubic in (almost) any general-purpose programming language is mostly a matter of minutes.


This wonderful site allows debugging and testing regular expressions (many flavors available). An absolute must have in your bookmarks.
