  • Read interactive input from the user
  • Perform a calculation
  • Conditionally change the units of the computed result

Assignment - Compute the time required to transfer a file

  • Prompt the user for the file size in Megabytes (a byte is 8 bits)
  • Prompt the user for the estimated transfer speed in Megabits/second
  • Display the file transfer time in seconds (don't forget the bytes to bits conversion)
  • For times longer than a minute, display in minutes.
