#1;While working with Java, one should become familiar with the term called array. An array is a category that holds more than one value at one time, a list of various items that belong to a certain category or bucket. Similar to an excel spreadsheet which contains categories and rows. The row would be the category and the columns would be the array.;In an array, related data can be collected and stored. Similar to a spreadsheet, there is a position for each row. There is a finite number starting at 0 and moving up sequentially. In processing the output, accessing the elements that will be processed for a preferred output is essential. Arrays enable the storage and management of data that are the same type, however, they are listed under one variable name. Each of the elements in an array will be unique.;Control structures are a block of code that indicates the flow of control. This would be a container series of functional calls and instructions. This concept is a main concept in high level programing, such as java. An example of a control structure would be an ?if a, then b else c.? An example of control structures forms are if then, subroutines, for loops and do while loops. Programmers need to be able to identify these control structures and so they will need to be formatted allowing them to be easily identified and separate from each other.;In my former career I used excel worksheets to maintain marketing products purchased every 4 months (by season). I used excel to maintain products each season for the fiscal year. In using arrays and contstructs it might look something like the below example;Mugs prjarrays;Public class seasonalprods;Public static void main (string[] args);Int 1,4,8,12, results;Int[] seasonalprods;seasonalprods=[0]=1;seasonalprods=[1]=4;seasonalprods=[2]=8;seasonalprods=[3]=12;results=(1+4+8+12);System.out.println(seasonalprods[1]);ANSWER;#2;Arrays and control structures are valuable tools when programming. An array contains a number of variables all being the same data type. Control structures such as selection and repetition constructs enable programmers to define variations in program flow depending upon certain conditions which may even involve repeating statements.;Discussed a personal experience using spreadsheets;As far as personal experience, at my church I am the chairperson of the Board of Trustee. As a Trustee we have be given the responsibility to handle the money of the church. Therefore we have to maintain a spreadsheet with the Churches? budget. With that said, as far as the church goes we have to keep up with the church expenses and paying the bills for the church. We then reconcile against the church budget.;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+;Explained the situation and how control constructs and arrays would resolve problem;Now the issue that presents itself is that how do I search through the Church budgets spreadsheet which represent a large database to find expenses and to see what left. I can use the control construct syntax such as? if ?and ?while? in a program with condition to find the information needed. Then I can construct and array with sub budget items that I can track the expenders.;Supported reason for using selection constructs or repetition constructs;The main reason I use the construct in programming is the loop statement. Many complex tasks require reparation of an action.;Offered and developed code to solve problem;importjavax.swing.*;public class ChurchBudget;static double income = 0;static double billsTotal = 0;static double bills[];static double payTotal = 0;static double pay[];public static void main(String args[]);bills = new double [6];bills[0] = 0,//rent;bills[1] = 0,//electric;bills[2] = 0,//water;bills[3] = 0,//food;bills[4] = 0,//gas;pay = new double [4];pay[0] = 0;pay[1] = 0;pay[2] = 0;pay[3] = 0;getExpenses(bills[0], bills[1], bills[2], bills[3], bills[4], bills[5]);getIncome(pay[0], pay[1], pay[2], pay[3]);JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "*****Expenses and Budget*****\n\n" +;Rent: " + bills[0] + "\n" +;Electric: " + bills[1] + "\n" +;Water: " + bills[2] + "\n" +;Food: " + bills[3] + "\n" +;Gas: " + bills[4] + "\n" +;Total Income: " + payTotal + "\n" +;Total Expenses: " + billsTotal + "\n" +;Current Budget: " + (payTotal - billsTotal));//end of main method;public static double getExpenses(double rent, double elec, double water, double food, double gas,);bills[0] = rent = Integer.parseInt(JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter rent ammount"));bills[1] = elec = Integer.parseInt(JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter electric ammount"));bills[2] = water = Integer.parseInt(JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter water ammount"));bills[3] = food = Integer.parseInt(JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter food ammount"));bills[4] = gas = Integer.parseInt(JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter gas ammount"));billsTotal = bills[0]+bills[1]+bills[2]+bills[3]+bills[4]+bills[5];returnelec;//end of getExpenses;public static double getIncome(double one, double two, double three, double four);pay[0] = one = Integer.parseInt(JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter first check"));pay[1] = two = Integer.parseInt(JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter second check"));pay[2] = three = Integer.parseInt(JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter third check"));pay[3] = four = Integer.parseInt(JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter forth check"));payTotal = pay[0]+pay[1]+pay[2]+pay[3];return one;//end of ChurchBudget class;ANSWER
