    i'm sorry, but this is exactly the type of question that's not going get a positive answer on this forum : not only do you just throw questions verbatim at us, you give any evidence that you put some work in yourself and top it all off, you also have a ridiculous deadline

    I have this same exact assignment for my Computer Science and Internet class at Full sail University.
    For one if your class has the same format or your t the same school. Your assignments are due online monday night. So therefore you were procrastinating.
    I dont know much about computers, but I used google and read my book and got it done in about 1-2 hours.

    yep ...
    apart from the updated sections, it looks just like IntroCompSci from the 1990s ...

    Indeed....

    If you spent your time reading up the answers you will find that it probably takes you a lot less time that it took to type all of that out...
    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.

    Yes. I can help you out.
    Will I help you out? No, I won't.
    Why not? For the reasons noted by others above.
    It's in your long term best interest to do the work yourself and to avoid procrastination. I do hope you will recognise that. If, in the meantime, it helps you to curse me as an uncooperative, self righteous dickhead, please go ahead. Then pause and recognise your own failings and how these can be corrected.

    Good luck with the future. (Luck is a real entity that is generated by hard work: direct correlation.)
