80th character issue with 1b

Howdy y�all,
I have submitted assignment 1b for nitpicking twice already, and I don�t seem to get the whole 80th character issue. I have created a few variables like:
Code removed. Please don't post actual code. Thanks.
Is the 80th character issue as simple as setting my numPerLine variable to 79 or do I need to figure out another solution. If anyone can help me with a good approach, I would be grateful.
I don�t want to keep submitting my assignment without first having a good feeling about it passing.

I don't have my code in front of me but I seem to remember that is how I did it.

That's the one I'm on right now.
I'd say there's a couple ways to think about it. For the numPerLine variable, it depends on what you're numbering.
You could go with the allowable number of colums in the line. So, numPerLine = 80. Or, you could calculate how many times the names can be printed on a line. For Gertrude, numPerLine = 8 (i think).
I'm sure that I picked the "wrong" way, and I'll get nitpicked for it.
