You can download the source code for the examples in the book and the solutions to the following exercises from http://www.wrox.com.

Write a console program to define and initialize a variable of type

`byte`to 1, and then successively multiply it by 2 and display its value 8 times. Explain the reason for the last result.Write a console program to declare and initialize a

`double`variable with some value such as 1234.5678. Then retrieve the integral part of the value and store it in a variable of type`long`, and the first four digits of the fractional part and store them in an integer of type`short`. Display the value of the`double`variable by outputting the two values stored as integers.Write a program that defines a floating-point variable initialized with a dollar value for your income and a second floating-point variable initialized with a value corresponding to a tax rate of 35 percent. Calculate and output the amount of tax you must pay with the dollars and cents stored as separate integer values (use two variables of type

`int`to hold the tax, perhaps`taxDollars`and`taxCents`).The diameter of the Sun is approximately 865,000 miles. The diameter of the Earth is approximately 7,600 miles. Use the methods in the class

`Math`to calculate:The volume of the Earth in cubic miles

The volume of the Sun in cubic miles

The ratio of the volume of the Sun to the volume of the Earth
