Divide by Zero

  • Complete a function called Divide() in Program.cs. The Divide() method takes in two parameters: x and y.
  • Your function should return the result of x/y.
  • However, if y is zero, you should throw an exception.

   static double Divide(double x, double y)
   {
      if (y == 0.0)
      {
         throw new ArgumentOutOfRangeException("y", "You cannot divide by zero!");
      }
      else
      {
         return x / y;
      }
   }
  • Put your try/catch block in Main() to test out your error-handling skills. If an exception is caught, make sure to print out the error message.

Student Test Labs

The CheckFileExtension() function should do the following:

  • Take in one parameter: fileName.
  • Return an integer representing the number of points a student receives for properly submitting a file in C#.
  • If a student’s submitted file ends in .cs, they get 1 point.
  • If a student’s submitted file doesn’t end in .cs, they get 0 points.
  • If the file submitted is null or an empty string, an exception should be thrown. What kind of exception is up to you!
