6.7 (Financial application: compute the future investment value) Write a method that computes future investment value at a given interest rate for a specified number of years. The future investment is determined using the formula in Programming Exercise 2.21. Use the following method header: public static double futureInvestmentValue(double investmentAmount, double monthlyInterestRate, int years) For example, futureInvestmentValue(10000, 0.05/12, 5) returns 12833.59. Write a program that prompts the user to enter the investment amount (e.g., 1000) and the interest rate (e.g., 9%) and prints a table that displays future value for the years from 1 to 30, as shown below. First, truncate the future value values to two decimals (See Chapter 2). Then use the System.out.printf() method to format the output (See Chapter 4).
The amount invested: 1000
Annual interest rate: 5
Years Future Value
Respond to the discussion about algorithms and their roles below using 150 words or more.
At the most basic level, an algorithm is simply a set of step-by-step instructions that we utilize to accomplish a specific task. We use algorithms every single day in our day-to-day activities: Brushing our teeth, getting dressed, driving to work, making dinner. These daily tasks which we complete are all composed of a set of instructions that starts with a certain action and ends with a certain action.
In the realm of computer programming, algorithms are utilized to enhance the efficiency, effectiveness, and functionality of the programs we create. Two such types of algorithms are searching algorithms and sorting algorithms.
Sorting algorithms are designed to sort an array of objects into a specific order. Searching algorithms are designed to compare the elements of an array to find a particular value within an array of objects. Just a few examples are search engines, the sorting of a business’ online item inventory, and sorting/searching a database of students who attend a university.
There are multiple approaches which people have taken to solve the issue of sorting and searching an array of items. Two frequently used searching algorithms are linear search and binary search. Three frequently used sorting algorithms are insertion sort, selection sort, and bubble sort.
Each of these types of algorithms have both pros and cons associated with them. The main properties that we want to keep an eye on when choosing an algorithm are memory usage, maintainability, and time complexity. It is always best to assess the situation and to use discretion when choosing which algorithm that we want to implement into our program.

Part1 and part2 need to be separately attached.
This phase of the project completes the design phase and develops a business continuity and disaster recovery plan for the final solution. This phase of the project must include the secured design diagrams that minimize risk and appropriately address the threats identified in Project 1: Problem Identification Assignment. Threats from “distributed denial of service attacks” – include semantic attacks and brute force attacks. And also Man in the middle attack from include semantic attacks and brute force attacks.
Any single points of failure must be addressed with appropriate fault-tolerant designs. Solutions must parallel the analyzed solutions. For example, if vulnerability was determined between 2 network gateways, a solution could include a virtual private network (VPN) with appropriate public key infrastructure (PKI) and certificates. If a man-in-the-middle network attack is a threat, Dynamic ARP Inspection and DHCP Snooping features on networking equipment can be indicated in the network design diagram to prevent these attacks.
Each design must be justified by the textbook and peer-reviewed research. You will be evaluated based upon the appropriate security solutions to the identified problem. The final design must seek to construct the appropriate controls for the target given various, regularly used vulnerabilities. For example, if the target is availability and the vulnerability is connection flooding (e.g. SYN flood), appropriately designed solutions would likely include the minimum controls of an intrusion detection system (IDS), firewall, access control list (ACL) on the border gateway/router, and a honeypot to counteract unauthorized attempts. A design diagram must properly illustrate this secured solution, and the author must subsequently explain each dimension of the security strategy.
Current and proper APA formatting is required and must include a title page, proper margins, citations, organization, proper grammar and spelling, and an ending resources page.
At the minimum, this phase of the project must include:
I. Executive summary and introduction
II. Systems Design
a. Detail the final systems design, supporting the results given the original review of the literature and the analysis performed in Project 2: Methodology Development Analysis Assignment
b. Design the final solution
i. Target of the attack
c. Create the appropriate design diagrams for the secured solution
d. NOTE: Required minimum length (8 peer-reviewed sources and at least 10 double-spaced, current APA-formatted pages) in the grading rubric excludes all systems analysis and design (SAD) diagrams and any other tables and/or graphical elements
III. Business continuity and disaster recovery plan (must be supported by relevant and current research from scholarly, peer-reviewed journals)
a. Basic BCP Policy
b. Basic business impact analysis (BIA)
c. Preventative measures
d. Recovery and restoration
IV. Project conclusion
a. Summary of the solution
b. Future recommendations and implications for business
c. Final project conclusion
V. Diagram examples in this phase could include but are not limited to:
a. Secured and hardened advanced system and/or network architecture diagrams
b. Secured package, design class, system security, and system control diagrams
c. Secured CPU/Memory/OS buffer, segmenting, address, and/or data bus mappings
d. NOTE: A minimum of 5 diagrams exist that accurately analyze a secure system, network, and/or application solution. Within EACH of the 5 diagrams, a minimum of 10 elements exist that accurately detail analysis of the environment that needs securing (Note, if 10 elements are not necessary in a diagram, add diagrams as needed to sufficiently meet this requirement). Each diagram is thoroughly developed based upon existing architecture and/or applications. Each diagram meets the associated technical requirements, programming language, notations, formatting, and modeling rules of the language (e.g. UML), industry standards for the diagram, and/or literature review. Analysis and design diagrams must have an associated industry standard that is widely accepted to be recognized (e.g. UML).
Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality via the Turnitin plagiarism tool.
