Question 1 .

True or false? Methods are often called functions, procedures, subroutines, and various other names.

Answer 1

Question 2

True or false? A Java method can be thought of as a separate program module that has the ability to do something useful. Having written the method, you canmake it available for use as a helper to your main program each time your main program needs to have that useful thing done.

Answer 2

Question 3

True or false? In Java, you must write all of the methods that you need.

Answer 3

Question 4

Answer 4

Question 5

True or false? Java only allows you to use the pre-written methods in the class libraries.

Answer 5

Question 6

Answer 6

Question 7

True or false? According to common programming jargon, the process of causinga method to be executed is commonly referred to as setting the method.

Answer 7

Answer 10

Question 11

True or false? Java is not a case-sensitive programming language.

Answer 11

Question 12

True or false? The following two rules will generally suffice to keep you out of trouble when defining variable and method names in Java:

  • Use only letters and numbers in Java names.
  • Always make the first character a letter.

Answer 12

Question 13

True or false? In Java, the assignment operator is the % character.

Answer 13

Question 14

True or false? The behavior of the sqrt method is to calculate and display the square root of the value passed to it as a parameter.

Answer 14

Question 15

True or false? The syntax for passing parameters to a method consists of following the name of the method with a pair of matching parentheses thatcontain the parameter or parameters. If more than one parameter is being passed, they are all included within the parentheses and separated by commas. The orderof the parameters is not important.

explain scarcity
Richard Reply
scarcity occurs when there are not enough resources to satisfy human's needs and wants therefore we need to allocate our resources using the price mechanism.
scarcity is when there is inadequate resources to catch the unlimited wants which would compel individual to make choice.
scarcity simply means when there's a shortages of resources to satisfy Hunan's need and wants in a particular time, which means the demand for it at the moment is higher than the supply
scarcity simply means when there's a shortages of resources to satisfy humans need and wants in a particular time, which means the demand for it at the moment is higher than it supply.

why is economics a science
Isaac Reply
Because science is all about thinking by making models whether a computational or Mathematical. Economics is a social sciences because it effects society but to understand Economics we use maths so it is a Science
I hope.......Economic is social science because it makes new new currency of money,it is decided the country’s depend system and the system be repeated others benefits in our ...
so what is the disadvantages of mix economic system
Economics is regarded as a social science because it uses scientific methods to build theories that can help explain the behaviour of individuals, groups and organisations.
The question is: why is Economic a "science" and not why is economics a "social science?" Alright folks?
In my own understanding of why economics is a science it bcz it deals mainly on human resources just like biology that deals in the human body why economics is science it also deals on the management of human resources all over the world bcz without economics there will be no human resources
what is technology
my response to the earlier question is, economics is a science but not a pure science like biology, chemistry and physics. The reason is that those pure science study inanimate object while economics study human being, their experiment are predictable.
Economics is a social science subject that shows the relationship between ends and scarce means with their alternative uses
