No that is not correct.   Developing the flow chart is the most important
of the exercise.  That must be done on your own.  Once you have the flow
chart, the actual program can be done by a middle school student.  I hope 
you have not been working on the flow chart together.

Good luck with the program, and the rest of the course.
