hi- I'm working figuring out a way to do what the teachers told me to do...I still need a further hint:

I'm trying to Check how many of a particular name will fit on a line of max 80 characters (after already getting the length of the name) for Assignment 1B

all I can think of are a bunch of IF statements and maybe something with the % operator.

(thank you teachers for helping before and now.)

How about dividing the length of the line by the length of the name?
