San Juan Sailboat Charters: Entities, Identifying Primary and Foreign Keys

San Juan Sailboat Charters is an agent that leases sailboats to customers for a fee. San Juan does not own any sailboats; it leases boats on behalf of the owners who wish to earn income when they are not using their boats. San Juan charges a fee for its service. San Juan specializes in boats that can be used for multi-day or wee

Changing the Structure for an Ebook: Example Problem

Add a second DTD to the XML program attached that provides a different structure for the ebook. I have attached the 2 XML programs already created. Basically add a second DTD to ebook2.zip and change the structure of the ebook. Do not incorporate an attribute declaration.

Algorithm Verification

Answer the following questions about the information in Appendix J: o What will be printed if the input is 0? o What will be printed if the input is 100? o What will be printed if the input is 51? o What will be printed if the user enters "Wingding"? o Is this design robust? If so, explain why. If not, explain what you can

Circuit Minimization using Karnaugh Maps

For the attached circuit, determine the equation it implements. Then minimize the equation using a Karnaugh map, and draw a new circuit that implements the minimized equation?

Cryptography: substitution-permutation network

Consider the following 2x2 s-box x | S(x) ---|------- 0 | 3 1 | 1 2 | 0 3 | 2 Consider 2-round SPN (substitution-permutation network) with a block length of 4 bits. If the key mixing is done using a mod-4 addition operation before each round and after the last round, determine the ciphertext corres

VLookup and Excel

Use the VLOOKUP function in the formula to determine gallons per hour based on the type of plane, then multiply the result by the number of flying hours to compute the amout of fuel for each flight. The table for VLOOKUP function extends over three columns. Use the fuel required from part (a) to compute the additonal requirem

CLS on heads or tails program

I also need to fill in the missing part of the code In MS-DOS, the command to clear the screen is cls; in UNIX, it is clear. Try the command so that you understand its effect. Modify the heads_or_tails program so that the screen is cleared at the beginning of the program. Use the function call system ("cls") or system ("clear")
