    Default needs help in java programming.

    1. Give a segment of code that will find the position, posLastZero,
    of the last zero element among a[0], a[1], ..., a[n-1]. That is,
    posLastZero should be the largest integer such that
    a[posLastZero] is equal to zero. The value of n is given. If
    there is no zero element among a[0], a[1], ..., a[n-1], the code
    should set posLastZero equal to a negative one.

    Example: n = 7 a[0] = 5
    a[1] = 0
    a[2] = 7
    a[3] = 0
    a[4] = 3
    a[5] = 0
    a[6] = 9

    The code should leave posLastZero equal to 5 in this case, because
    a[5] is the last zero element among a[0], a[1], ..., a[n-1].
    This is only an example; your code must handle any case.

    2. Copy the elements a[0], a[1], ..., a[n-1] into the array b[], but
    rescale them by dividing them by a[0]. For example, if n=4,
    a[0]=1.5, a[1]=9.0, a[2]=3.0, and a[3]=6.0 before the code is
    executed, then afterwards the values of the elements of b()
    should be b[0]=1.0, b[1]=6.0, b[2]=2.0, and b[3]=4.0.
    Each element has been divided by the value, 1.5, of a[0].
    This is only an example; of course your code must be general
    and must handle any number of elements.

    3. Given nA and a[0], a[1], ..., a[nA - 1], with the elements a[j] in
    nondecreasing order (a[0] <= a[1] <= ... <= a[nA-1]), give a segment
    of code that will "squeeze out the duplicates in-place" and
    will set nA equal to the number of unique elements in a.
    That is, if nA=5, a[0]=0.0, a[1]=0.0, a[2]=1.2, a[3]=2.3, and a[4]=2.3,
    then after execution of the code the contents should be a[0]=0.0,
    a[1]=1.2, and a[2]=2.3, and nA=3. The duplicate elements (the second
    value of 0.0 and the second value of 2.3) have been eliminated from
    the array.
    (The final contents of a[3] and a[4] can be anything.)
    This is only an example. Your code must be general and must not
    contain any "magic numbers".

    4. How should you declare your instance variables in a class?

    5. Write a constructor for a class named Dog that has instance variables of
    String name, String breed, and int age.

    Yeah, I always hate the times I forget what kind of forums i'm on. But luckily the poster reminded me.

    People must really think people will do their homework assignments for them... At least make a little effort...
