September 23, 2018

Exercise 1.1: Below is a sequence of expressions. What is the result printed by the interpreter in response to each expression? Assume that the sequence is to be evaluated in the order in which it is presented.

Solution

The result of the evaluation are after the > bellow:

10
> 10

(+ 5 3 4)
> 12

(- 9 1)
> 8

(/ 6 2)
> 3

(+ (* 2 4) (- 4 6))
> 6

(define a 3)
>

(define b (+ a 1))
>

(+ a b (* a b))
> 19

(= a b)
> #f

(if (and (> b a) (< b (* a b)))
    b
    a)
> 4

(cond ((= a 4) 6)
      ((= b 4) (+ 6 7 a))
      (else 25))
> 16

(+ 2 (if (> b a) b a))
> 6

(* (cond ((> a b) a)
         ((< a b) b)
         (else -1))
   (+ a 1))
> 16
