© 2007 Lawrenceville Press Slide 1 Chapter 5 The if Statement Conditional control structure, also called a decision structure Executes a set of statements when a condition is true The condition is a Boolean expression For example, the statement if (x == 5) { y = 20; } assigns the value 20 to y only if x is equal to 5.

© 2007 Lawrenceville Press Slide 3 Chapter 5 The if-else Statement Contains an else clause that is executed when the if condition evaluates to false. For example, the statement if (x == 5) { y = 20; } else { y = 10; } assigns the value 20 to y if x is equal to 5 or the value 10 if x is not equal to 5.

For example, the statement if (x == 5) { y = 20; } else { if (x > 5) { y = 10; } else { y = 0; } } evaluates the nested if-else only when x is not equal to 5.

© 2007 Lawrenceville Press Slide 5 Chapter 5 The if-else if Statement Used to decide among three or more actions. Conditions must be properly ordered for the statement to evaluate as expected. For example, the statement if (x < 5) { y = 20; } else if (x < 10) { y = 40; } else if (x < 15) { y = 80; } would give very different results if the conditions were ordered differently.

The break statement moves program execution to the next statement after the switch. The default code is optional and is executed when none of the previous cases are met: switch (numLegs) { case 2: System.out.println("human"); break; case 4: System.out.println("beast"); break; case 8: System.out.println("insect"); break; default: System.out.println("???"); break; }

© 2007 Lawrenceville Press Slide 7 Chapter 5 The Math Class Part of the java.lang package The random() methods generates a double between 0 and 1.0. For example, double rNum; rNum = Math.random(); A random integer in a range is generated by using the expression: (highNum – lowNum + 1) * Math.random() + lowNum

© 2007 Lawrenceville Press Slide 8 Chapter 5 Compound Boolean Expressions More than one Boolean expression in a single condition. Formed using the logical And ( && ), logical Or ( || ), or logical Not ( ! ) operators.
