Fizz Buzz

Fizz buzz

A counting game for children.

Fizz buzz is a counting game for children to teach them about division. Players take turns to count incrementally, replacing any number divisible by three with the word “fizz”, and any number divisible by five with the word “buzz”.

Write a program to show the output of the game Fizz Buzz up to a number entered by the user.

Use this boilerplate code as a starting point:

Success Criteria

Remember to add a comment before a subprogram, selection or iteration statement to explain its purpose.

CComplete the subprogram called `fizz_buzz` that:

  1. Takes one parameter, `x` that is the number to count up to.
  2. For multiples of 3 and 5 it outputs, “Fizz Buzz”.
  3. For multiples of 3 only it outputs, “Fizz”.
  4. For multiples of 5 only it outputs, “Buzz”.
  5. For any other number it outputs the number.
  6. Note that the count starts at one, increments by one and ends at the last number.

Complete the `main program` so that:

  1. The user can input the number to count up to.
  2. It calls the `fizz_buzz` subprogram.

Typical inputs and outputs from the program would be:

Check that you have:

  • Used comments within the code to describe the purpose of subprograms, conditions and iterations.
  • Used meaningful identifier names. That means the names of subprograms and variables indicate what they are for.
