             *  1. Copy this code to a new project, do not work in this file!
             *  2. Start by finding and fixing all of the Syntax Errors first.
             *     - Syntax errors are the red squiggy lines that will prevent the code from running.
             *  3. Now the code should run and you can see the output on the console.
             *  4. Find the Logical Errors
             *     - Logical errors will give you the wrong output.
             *     - These are a bit harder to find.  Keep checking the correct output given!
             *     - Follow any additional instructions given in the comments.
             *  5. Once you think you are done, check your output line by line against the 
             *     given correct output.
             *  6. If it matches perfectly, zip your whole project file and submit it to FSO.
