Quiz 1, CS 257

  1. You have a file bar.stk in your home directory that you'd like to load into scheme (which is already running inside your Emacs). What do you type?

  2. Sue the high school hacker gets paid $150 for installing Linux on her dad's company's web server, and invests it all in stock in a startup that goes up 17% before she sells. She then earns $72 for helping recover a file from a disk that crashed without any backups. At this point she invests all her money in Microsoft, just in time for the Great Crash of 1997 in which she loses 54% of her investment.

    Write a Scheme expression that calculates how much money Sue ends up with.
