Unformatted text preview: Mapua Institute of Technology School of Information Technology CS103 Fundamentals of Problem Solving and Programming 1 Lecture #6 Functions - Predefined What is a function? Before we answer that question, first imagine for example the following scenario. Let us assume that you were a programmer and you were asked to write a program that will be used to handle Automated Teller Machine transactions. Such transactions include: (1) balance inquiry, (2) deposit and say (3) withdrawal. Aside from these, the user should be presented a menu showing these transactions as possible options. For a non-trivial program like these, it is not advisable to write the codes under one main() program. It is better to subdivide the program into smaller portions which we will call functions. Each function should be able to solve part of the bigger problem. In the scenario above, one function will handle the generation of the menu, another function will be in-charge of handling the balance inquiry, another...
