How to Write a C Program to Check the Values of Four Integers

write a C program that accepts four integers p, q, r and s from the user where q, r and s are positive and p is even.

If you are learning C programming, you might have encountered some problems that require you to check the values of four integers and print a message based on some conditions. For example, you might want to check if the integers satisfy some inequalities or some arithmetic relations. In this program, I will show you how to write a C program that accepts four integers p, q, r and s from the user where q, r and s are positive and p is even. If q is greater than r and s is greater than p and if the sum of r and s is greater than the sum of p and q, the program prints "Correct values", otherwise it prints "Wrong values".

What are the Conditions for the Four Integers?

The conditions for the four integers p, q, r and s are as follows:

•  q, r and s must be positive. This means that they must be greater than zero.
•  p must be even. This means that it must be divisible by two without any remainder.
• -q must be greater than r. This means that q - r must be positive.
•  s must be greater than p. This means that s - p must be positive.
• The sum of r and s must be greater than the sum of p and q. This means that (r + s) - (p + q) must be positive.

If all these conditions are met, the program prints "Correct values". If any of these conditions are not met, the program prints "Wrong values".

C Program

To write a C program that can check the values of four integers and print the result, we need to do three things:

• Declare a function that takes four parameters (the four integers) and prints the result.
• Define the function using an if-else statement to check the conditions and set the result accordingly.
• Write a main function that prompts the user to enter four integers and calls the check values function with the input as arguments.

Here is how our program looks like:

Sure, I can try to write a C program for that. Here is one possible solution:

#include <stdio.h>

// A function to check the values of p, q, r and s and print the result

void check_values(int p, int q, int r, int s) {

// Declare a variable to store the result

char *result;

// Check if q is greater than r and s is greater than p and if the sum of r and s is greater than the sum of p and q

if (q > r && s > p && (r + s) > (p + q)) {

// If yes, set the result to "Correct values"

result = "Correct values";

}

else {

// If no, set the result to "Wrong values"

result = "Wrong values";

}

// Print the result to the standard output

printf("%s\n", result);

}

// A main function to test the check_values function

int main() {

// Declare some variables to store the input

int p, q, r, s;

// Prompt the user to enter four integers

printf("Enter four integers (p, q, r, s): ");

scanf("%d %d %d %d", &p, &q, &r, &s);

// Check if q, r and s are positive and p is even

if (q > 0 && r > 0 && s > 0 && p % 2 == 0) {

// If yes, call the check_values function with the input as arguments

check_values(p, q, r, s);

}

else {

// If no, print an error message to the standard output

printf("Invalid input. Please enter positive values for q, r and s and an even value for p.\n");

}

}

Output

The output of the program depends on the input that the user enters. For example, if the user enters 2 4 6 8, the output will be:

Wrong values
