ARITHMETIC(6) BSD Games Manual ARITHMETIC(6)NAMEarithmetic-- quiz on simple arithmeticSYNOPSISarithmetic[-o+-x/] [-rrange]DESCRIPTIONarithmeticasks you to solve problems in simple arithmetic. Each ques- tion must be answered correctly before going on to the next. After every 20 problems, it prints the score so far and the time taken. You can quit at any time by typing the interrupt or end-of-file character. The options are as follows:-o+-x/By default,arithmeticasks questions on addition of numbers from 0 to 10, and corresponding subtraction. By supplying one or more of the characters+-x/, you can ask for problems in ad- dition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, respec- tively. If you give one of these characters more than once, that kind of problem will be asked correspondingly more often.-rrangeIf arangeis supplied,arithmeticselects the numbers in its problems in the following way. For addition and multiplica- tion, the numbers to be added or multiplied are between 0 andrange, inclusive. For subtraction and division, both the re- quired result and the number to divide by or subtract will be between 0 andrange. (Of course,arithmeticwill not ask you to divide by 0.) The defaultrangeis 10. When you get a problem wrong,arithmeticwill remember the numbers in- volved, and will tend to select those numbers more often than others, in problems of the same sort. Eventually it will forgive and forget.arithmeticcannot be persuaded to tell you the right answer. You must work it out for yourself.DIAGNOSTICSWhat?if you get a question wrong.Right!if you get it right.Pleasetypeanumber.ifarithmeticdoesn't understand what you typed.SEE ALSObc(1), dc(1) BSD May 31, 1993 BSD
