Show your work!!!!!

During a recent job interview, I was given a programming test / quiz – which I botched up royally – I froze. And no, I didn’t get the job. So in the spirit of my math teachers – I’m going to ‘Show My Work’.

The test was to write the code to display numbers 1-100, if divisible by 3 – write “Yeah”, if divisible by 5 – write “Baby”, if divisible by both – “Yeah Baby”. I didn’t freeze because I didn’t know how to do the “for/while” statements/loop or the “if” statements, it was because I had never had to check for a WHOLE number before. So my mind was racing on a small detail of the question – in my mind an important part of the question (but not to them I guess). Well, I now know how to check for a whole number in 3 different ways. Something learned!!!

So here are my 3 versions (I have a tendency to be dramatic you know):


<script type="text/javascript">
function YB(){
        x = i/3;
        y = i/5;
        if(x == parseInt(x)){
            a = " Yeah";
        if (y == parseInt(y)){
            a = a+ " Baby";

        document.write(i+" "+a+" <br />");
        a = "";



for ($i =1; $i<=100; $i++)
    if($i % 3 == 0){
        $a = " Yeah";
    if($i % 5 == 0){
        $a .= " Baby";
    print $i." ".$a."<br />";
    $a = "";


public class yeahBaby{
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        for(double i =1; i <= 100; i=i+1)
            String a = "";
            double x = i/3;
            double y = i/5;
            if(x == Math.rint(x)){
                a = " Yeah";
            if(y == Math.rint(y)){
                a = a+ " Baby";
            System.out.println(Math.round(i)+" "+a);
