Yeah, i agree with Wayne. I think it shouldn't be required. Programming is all about how programmer thinks. We should let programmers figure out a way to get the result not requiring to do it a certain way. It's just pointless and limits the possibilities we could've come up to solve the problems...............
: Why are we now "explicity required" to store monetary amounts as integers now for project 5? What a load! For both programs 3 and 4, I was able to store them as decimal amounts and all values came out correct, no matter how many changes I made to the input file. I tried to do things a little different and see if I could make it work. I don't understand why I (and the others who took this route) are being punished for taking a different approach and still getting correct results. Why all of a sudden are we required to use integers? Why was it just a suggestion before and now a requirement?
