Solving the "Encoded Message" VexCode VR

We have been assigned the vexcode VR encoded message assignment. I am currently on level 2. None of my classmates know how to complete it, and our teacher tells us “figure it out.” Any ideas?

Keep in mind this is in “Text Code” not in “blocks.”

What specifically are you stuck on?

I despise people named Trevor, (In my town) as they are incapable of fixing code

I have the first level done. I’m basically stuck on the whole second part. Like telling the program the values, and having it know how to convert it into decimal.

take a look at Level 2, we have finished level 1 but implementing things from level 2 is challenging for us

You already get the binary values in the first part, that shouldn’t be a problem. Check out the link I sent in my last post for how to convert binary to decimal, then try to code it.

Numeric variables or lists?

probably a list. Could I make it see the numbers and put that into a list? and then convert into decimal

You could definitely do that. That is probably what I would do.

I’m making a vex account. Do you think that I would need to say that i’m an educator and not a student to access it?

No, only a VEX Account is needed - the answer keys are not limited to only educator accounts.

The registration questions are for demographic purposes and also used for Certification Programs (i.e. certain ages / roles for head referee certifications) set by RECF.

I just confirmed the ZIP file has both Blocks and Python solutions for Encoded Message. Please make sure you’re downloading the correct set of activity answers.

Remember everyone that asking for help on your homework is fine, but going out of your way to find the answer key to cheat isn’t…

I imagine your teacher appreciates you taking the initiative to do research online, but would prefer you to ask them for more direct help before accessing the answer key linked above. In programming seeing a good solution goes a long way towards helping you solve future problems, however it is up to your teacher to decide what is allowed/appropriate based on the goal of the assignment.
