     Instructions:   Review the following program and see if you can 
                     predict the outcome by completing a "pencil 
                     trace" of the code.  

                     Program output is provided at the end of this 
                     page.

     Compiler:       The program was prepared using Standard Pascal 
                     on a UNIX-based host computer.

{ The purpose of this program is to:

  1.  Demonstrate the use of an array of integer variables.

  2.  Demonstrate how elements of an array can be used in
      a math activity.

  3.  Demonstrate the construction of a multiplication table.

}

program Demonstrate_Arrays_4;


var Result : array[1..4,1..5] of integer;
    R      : integer;
    C      : integer;

begin
   for R := 1 to 4 do
      for C := 1 to 5 do
         Result[R, C] := R * C;

   for R := 1 to 4 do begin
      for C := 1 to 5 do
         write('   ', R:1, '*', C:1, ' = ', Result[R,C]:3);
      writeln;
   end;
