© Sunil Prabhakar Problem n Write a program that tells a patient if their total cholesterol measure is too high or not. ¡ The measure is an integer and is too high if it exceeds 239. n Your program should read in the measure and output an appropriate evaluation. 2 Thursday, February 9, 2012
© Sunil Prabhakar Choices n Clearly, in order to solve this problem, we need to be able to choose which of the alternative messages to print. n All programming languages provide this ability to choose: selection statements n Java provides if-else and switch statements. 3 Thursday, February 9, 2012

© Sunil Prabhakar 4 Flow of control n Once a statement is executed, the next statement of the program is executed. n Calling a method transfers the control to the statements in the method. n Once the method returns, control returns to statement that made the call. n Changing this flow of control is achieved using if and switch (and other) statements. n These are called control flow statements.
