Wordy

Parse and evaluate simple math word problems returning the answer as an integer.

Iteration 1 — Addition

Add two numbers together.

Evaluates to 18.

Handle large numbers and negative numbers.

Iteration 2 — Subtraction, Multiplication and Division

Now, perform the other three operations.

2

What is 6 multiplied by 4?

24

What is 25 divided by 5?

5

Iteration 3 — Multiple Operations

Handle a set of operations, in sequence.

Since these are verbal word problems, evaluate the expression from left-to-right, ignoring the typical order of operations.

What is 5 plus 13 plus 6?

24

What is 3 plus 2 multiplied by 3?

15 (i.e. not 9)

Bonus — Exponentials

If you'd like, handle exponentials.

Rust Installation

Refer to the exercism help page for Rust installation and learning resources.

Writing the Code

Execute the tests with:

1
$ cargo test

All but the first test have been ignored. After you get the first test to pass, open the tests source file wich is located in the tests directory and remove the #[ignore] flag from the next test and get the tests to pass again. Each separate test is a function with #[test] flag above it. Continue, until you pass every test.

If you wish to run all tests without editing the tests source file, use:

1
$ cargo test -- --ignored

To run a specific test, for example some_test, you can use:

1
$ cargo test some_test

If the specfic test is ignored use:

1
$ cargo test some_test -- --ignored

To learn more about Rust tests refer to the online test documentation

Make sure to read the Modules chapter if you haven't already, it will help you with organizing your files.
