Hi guys. . I'm a newbie /maybe dummy /
teacher gave me homework.. but I can"n solve it.. Can sum1 help me??

Write a C program that will input a 9-digit Credit Card Number, and will check whether iit is valid or not (i.e. to examine if the last 2 digits of the Credit Card Number can be generated from the first 7-digit number)

Now let present my sollution.
algortihm :
1- enter 9 digited numbers
2- get 3rd 4 and 5th digits and create a 3 digited number. say this number x
3- find square of x
4- get 8 and 9 th digits and say this 2 digited number y
5- compare x and y in (mod10)
6.a- if they're equal in mod10 print "valid credti card number"
6.b- else "invalid credit card number"

Firstly I defined the a1, a2 ... a9 variables.
Then wrote the printf("Enter 9 digited c.c. numba" );
then, scanf all a1 a2 ... a9

I dont know how to get a3a4a5 and a8a9 as a number.

I can do the end.. Such let's say x to the square of a3a4a5.. and y to a8a9 /two digited number/
Then we can compare .

if(x %10== y)
{
printf("valid c.c. number");
}
else
{
printf("invalid c.c. number");
}

I hope I could describe the problem..
