    Working With If...Then Statements

    I'm doing a homework assignment where I have to look at the code created by my teacher and write what the answer would be using the information given.

    So x starts at 7
    y starts at 12

    Using the info below.

    First she declared her variables and her statement looks like this:

    If x <= 7 Or y > 11 Then
    If x > 2 Or y > 9 Then
    y = 4 * y + x
    Else
    y = x - 8
    If x + y > 14 Then
    x = x - 7
    End If
    End If

    So looking at this the first If...Then statement is true then I go to the second one which is 'If x > 2 Or y > 9 Then'
    and if that one is true as well I plug in my numbers to solve for 'y'. But do I use the same equation to solve for x as well?


    Thanks for all help given

    if 7 <= 7 OR 12 > 11 THEN // they both are
    if 7 > 2 OR 12 > 9 THEN // they both are
    y=4 * 12 + 7 //55
    ELSE
    y = 12 - 8 //4
    IF 7 + 4 > 14 THEN // it isn't
    x = 7-7

    There is no way to tell with what you have here. Since you'll never enter that else statement, and there is mismatched end if with the if. . .then calls, there are. . . looks like 3 possible outcomes with the above algorithm. My personal answer with that above block is a compilation error.

    Since the else can never be executed in the above code no matter how its written, y will always be 55, and x will be either 0 or 7.
