CS 61A Laboratory Solutions Week 3 1. How to reverse the order in which coins are tried? One solution is to reverse the order of the numbers in FIRST-DENOMINATION: (define (first-denomination kinds-of-coins) (cond ((= kinds-of-coins 1) 50) ((= kinds-of-coins 2) 25) ((= kinds-of-coins 3) 10) ((= kinds-of-coins 4) 5) ((= kinds-of-coins 5) 1))) Another would be, using the original version of first-denomination, to change COUNT-CHANGE and CC so that the variable KINDS-OF-COINS counts upward instead of downward: (define (count-change amount) (cc amount 1)) (define (cc amount kinds-of-coins) (cond ((= amount 0) 1) ((or (< amount 0) (> KINDS-OF-COINS 5)) 0) ; changed here (else (+ (cc (- amount (first-denomination kinds-of-coins)) kinds-of-coins) (cc amount (+ KINDS-OF-COINS 1)))))) ; changed here 2. Explore the efficiency. Here is what happens with (cc 5 2) in the original order, as in the book: > (cc 5 2) "CALLED" cc 5 2 "CALLED" cc 0 2 "CALLED" cc 5 1 "CALLED" cc 4 1 "CALLED" cc 3 1 "CALLED" cc 2 1
