Question 1


Imagine a simple programming language.

The command to add two numbers (say 5 and 9) is:


add( 5, 9)


The command to multiply two numbers (say ‘x’ and ‘y’) is:


mul( x, y)


In this language, you can ‘nest’ functions; for example


‘5 * (4 + 3)’ is specified as:


mul(5, add(4, 3) )


Can you write the commands for the following calculations?


  • 7 + 1 + 3
  • 5 * 4 * 9
  • 8 * -1
