11. Design a retirement planning calculator for Skulling Financial Services. Allow a user to enter a number of working years remaining in the user’s career and the annual amount of money the user can save. Assume that the user earns three percent simple interest on savings annually. Program output is a schedule that lists each year number in retirement starting with year 0 and the user’s savings at the start of that year. Assume that the user spends $60,000 per year in retirement and then earns three percent interest on the remaining balance. End the list after 30 years, or when the user’s balance is 0 or less, whichever comes first.

Design a program for the Hollywood Movie Rating Guide, which can be installed in a kiosk in theaters. Each theater patron enters a value from 0 to 4 indicating the number of stars that the patron awards to the Guide’s featured movie of the week. If a user enters a star value that does not fall in the correct range, reprompt the user continuously until a correct value is entered. The program executes continuously untilthe theater manager enters a negative number to quit. At the end of the program,
