HOMEWORK 2A Due: Monday,June6,2015,11:59pm 1. WriteaMATLABscriptthattakesadateasinputandreturnsthedayoftheweek. In the model problem explored in class, we took two times as input and computed the elapsed time in between. This homework problem is a slight variation on that. Your program should: (a) Take 3 separate command line inputs for a given date in the following format: MMM DD YYYY You can prompt the user with a question, Please enter the month as MMM (e.g. JAN): Please enter the day as DD (e.g. 01): Please enter the year as YYYY (e.g. 2000): (b) Check the validity of the input and return an error if necessary. If the user inputs an unreasonable value (e.g., YYYY as A6&@) or inputs a date that doesn’t exist (e.g., JAN 32 2000 or FEB 29 2014) return an error message to the command window. Design your program to work for positive year values from 0001 to 9999 (we’ll ignore the complication of converting from Julian to Gregorian dates and assume that the Gregorian calendar can be extended backwards past October 1582). Also, make sure to take leap years into account.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
