Exercise #11 A university is interested in the employment prospects of its graduating students. Each graduating student is expected to have between N 1 and N 2 job interviews (inclusive of these limits), with each possibility being equally likely, and each interview has a P % chance of producing a job offer. Write a C++ program that repeatedly reads in values for N 1 , N 2 and P until -1 -1 -1 is entered. For each set of values entered your program should produce either an error message (if the values don’t make sense), or a table like that shown below. It gives the probability distribution for job offers. In this example, each student has a 19.6% chance of getting no job offers, a 25.1% chance of getting one offer, and so on.

Instead you must use simulation. Your program must include: 1) A function that, given N 1 and N 2 , decides how many job interviews a particular student will have 2) A boolean function that, given P , decides whether or not a particular interview will result in a job offer, 3) A function that, given N 1 , N 2 and P , simulates a single graduating student and returns the number of job offers received by that student Note that P is to be entered as a percentage. Call your program “ jobOffers.cpp ” and submit as Assignment #11....
