# Interpreted or Compiled????feel free to correct me cuz i think i need

Im not sure but i know Pascal is a compiled language but am confused about if the following are correct, if anyone can correct me please do.....]

Java- Interpreted??
COBOL-Interpreted
C++- Compiled???

What would the computer display as the answer tothe following calculation:

6+8/2*4-5???
i got the following...4.2 but feel im wrong.

Also assuming the variables A,B,C and D hold the values shown would the following codes be executed or ignored?

1. if(A>10)and(B=6)then....?
2. if(C=10)or(B=6)then...?
3. if(A=10)and(B>=5)or(D=-5)then...?
4. if NOT(A=10)and(C<22)then...?

(im confuised with the above for real!)

* How cud i use Pascal to perform a conditional branch to make it repeat a block of code 8 times ?

* I dont know what Pascal variable data-type would be used to hold the following values:
1)3.123878?
2)10?

* Where could i go in terms of a website where i could find out about 'Von Neumann Architecture'based CPU and they can explain what the function of each section is?????

PLEASE ALL REPLIES WOUDL BE GRATEFUL!X

• Sounds like homework so I dont want to give direct answers. This should help though:

: What would the computer display as the answer tothe following calculation:

: i got the following...4.2 but feel im wrong.

I dont know about all compilers, but in Pascal it'll follow the order of operations (BEDMAS) so the answer will not be 4.2

: Also assuming the variables A,B,C and D hold the values shown would the following codes be executed or ignored?
:
: 1. if(A>10)and(B=6)then....?
: 2. if(C=10)or(B=6)then...?

: 4. if NOT(A=10)and(C<22)then...?

This is easy to answer. Just put the code into a program and have it write something if the IF THEN evaluates to true. It's easy to see which ones are executed then.

: * How cud i use Pascal to perform a conditional branch to make it repeat a block of code 8 times ?

Lots of ways. The preferred would be to use the style that lets you specify the start and end values (where you would specify 1 for start and 8 for end)

: * I dont know what Pascal variable data-type would be used to hold the following values:
: 1)3.123878?
: 2)10?

Most people would say a floating point for 1) and a non-floating point for 2). Personally I would say floating point for both, since it's technically correct.

www.google.com would be my first pick
