Code java:

import javax.swing.JOptionPane; import java.util.Arrays; public class Security { public static void main( String[] args) { int Nsigma = 0; int Msigma = 0; int Osigma = 0; int[] force = {21,25,96,25,74,66,35,17,85,31,74,36,45,24,93,41,82}; int[] consequence = {4,9,6,3,7,8,2,1,12,16,18,17,19,13,11,10,5}; int[] reference = {21,25,32,41,26,46,12,14,65,85,45,14,82,64,55,87,96}; double fsum = 0; double csum = 0; double rsum = 0; int alpha = 0; int beta = 0; double wpi; String sumtotal; String RequirementString; String AnswerString; String AlphaString; String BetaString; String errorstatement = "Invalid Requirement"; RequirementString = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter Requirement Type\n NF, F, D, B, I, or P"); if (RequirementString.equals("NF") || RequirementString.equals("nf")) { Nsigma = 5; Msigma = 10; Osigma = 15; AlphaString = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter number between -10 and 10"); BetaString = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter number between -1 and 1"); alpha = Integer.parseInt( AlphaString ); beta = Integer.parseInt( BetaString ); } else if (RequirementString.equals("F") || RequirementString.equals("f")) { Nsigma = 11; Msigma = 7; Osigma = 16; AlphaString = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter number between 0 and 5"); BetaString = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter number between -5 and 5"); alpha = Integer.parseInt( AlphaString ); beta = Integer.parseInt( BetaString ); } else if (RequirementString.equals("D") || RequirementString.equals("d")) { Nsigma = 8; Msigma = 7; Osigma = 2; AlphaString = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter number between 1 and 2"); BetaString = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter number between 1 and 5"); alpha = Integer.parseInt( AlphaString ); beta = Integer.parseInt( BetaString ); } else if (RequirementString.equals("B") || RequirementString.equals("b")) { Nsigma = 17; Msigma = 5; Osigma = 11; AlphaString = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter number between 1 and 5"); BetaString = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter number between 1 and 2"); alpha = Integer.parseInt( AlphaString ); beta = Integer.parseInt( BetaString ); } else if (RequirementString.equals("I") || RequirementString.equals("i")) { Nsigma = 3; Msigma = 6; Osigma = 9; AlphaString = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter number between -5 and 5"); BetaString = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter number between 0 and 5"); alpha = Integer.parseInt( AlphaString ); beta = Integer.parseInt( BetaString ); } else if (RequirementString.equals("P") || RequirementString.equals("p")) { Nsigma = 10; Msigma = 11; Osigma = 12; AlphaString = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter number between -1 and 1"); BetaString = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter number between -10 and 10"); alpha = Integer.parseInt( AlphaString ); beta = Integer.parseInt( BetaString ); } else { JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, errorstatement); System.exit(0); } /*Parse integers alpha = Integer.parseInt( AlphaString ); beta = Integer.parseInt( BetaString );*/ //Summations for (int i = 0; i <= Msigma; i++) { fsum += force[i]; } for (int j = 0; j <= Nsigma; j++) { csum += consequence[j]; } for (int k = 0; k <= Osigma; k++) { rsum += reference[k]; } sumtotal = fsum + " " + csum + " " + rsum; fsum += alpha; csum += beta; wpi = (fsum + csum) / rsum; AnswerString = "Wpi is " + wpi; JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, AnswerString); } }

The assignment was to take basically a sum of two summations and divide it by another summation

We have to come up for a reason as why did we choose the amount of forces,consequences,and references(the numbers) in the program. Can somebody help me with a rational explanation as to why would my team choose the numbers we chose. Any suggestions would help. Thanks:-h

Here's the formula(kinda hard to see)

Here is some more information.

The terms alpha and beta represent different security requirement types that may be altered depending on the individual project requirements of the developer. These security requirements types take on the symbolic values of NF = nonfunctional requirements, F= functional requirements, D=data requirements, B = behavioral requirements, I = interface requirements, P = performance requirements and numeric values. The above listed elements are sufficient to represent any requirements that could be encountered by a developer examining security issues within the security pattern domain.
