    Default Exam study review question

    Time is given as a 4 digit string. First 2 digits represent hour, the last 2 represent minitute.
    Thus 935 is 9 hours 35 minutes (9:35am), 1454 is 14 hours 54 minutes (2:54pm).
    Write a method that prints time in hours and minutes (0-23 hours) without using decision logic.
    Expend the previous method to print time with am/pm distinction-allowed to use if/else to differentiate between am and pm.

    Break the problem down. How would you do this by hand? Write out the steps on paper if the need be. For instance, you have a four digit string, and you need an algorithm to get the first and last two digits. Then think about how you can implement those steps using code - see the API for the String and Integer classes, which might be helpful here.

    I recommend reading the following article: How to Program (stuck on homework? READ THIS BEFORE POSTING)
