Assignment 9.2 Grade Values

  • Academic grades in the US are traditionally given as letter grades: A, B, C, D, and F. We need to translate these letter grades into number to calclulate a grade point average (GPA).
  • Write a program that converts a letter grade into it's numerical value using the following conversion table.
    Letter Grade GPA
    A 4.00
    A- 3.67
    B+ 3.33
    B 3.00
    B- 2.67
    C+ 2.33
    C 2.00
    C- 1.67
    D+ 1.33
    D 1.00
    D- 0.67
    F 0.00
  • In a class file named, ask the user for a letter grade of A, B, C, D, or F, possibly followed by a + or -, and no other input as shown in the Example Run.
  • Convert the letter grade into the numerical equivalent shown above.

    Notice that the highest number is 4.0 and that there are no F+ or F- grades. Make sure that the highest grade number is 4.0 and that F+, F and F- are assigned 0.0 values.

  • Display the output using the default formatting and precision for the numbers -- do NOT add any numerical formatting statements to the code.
  • Sample Output: The input prompts and outputs of the program must look like the following for full credit, including the same order of input and wording of the output. For the input shown you must get the same output. However, the output must change properly if the inputs are different.
    Enter a letter grade: B-
    The numeric value is 2.67
    Enter a letter grade: A+
    The numeric value is 4.0
    Enter a letter grade: F-
    The numeric value is 0.0

    In the above three example runs, the user entered "B-", "A+" and "F-" (without the quotes) as the letter grades to convert.

  • After displaying the output, exit the program.
  • Submit your program when you are finished.
