Expert's answer

Just make the form in any VB version with 1 button, and add corresponding code.

The answer is 5 hours and 4mg.

Just in case, about 0,87:

(X*100%-X*13%)/100%=x*87%/100%=X*0,87

So to remove 13% we just multiply by 0,87

Public Class Form1

Dim caff_dose As Integer 'to count current dose

Dim hour As Integer 'to count hours

Dim caff_half_dose_time As Integer 'to hold found 1 question value

Dim hour24_left As Integer 'to hold found 2 question value

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

'initial values

caff_dose = 130

hour = 0

While caff_dose > 65 'the loop will end when the dose would fall below 65

hour = hour + 1 'increasing hours

caff_dose = caff_dose * 0.87 'decreasing dose

MsgBox("HALF DOSE TIME: on hour " & hour quot; we have " & caff_dose quot;mg") 'you can remove this line, just to show loop output

caff_half_dose_time = hour 'so when the loop stops we will have desired number

End While

'initial values again

caff_dose = 130

hour = 0

While hour < 24 'the loop will end on 24-th hour

hour = hour + 1 'same as above loop

caff_dose = caff_dose * 0.87 'same as above loop

MsgBox("24 HOURS: on hour " & hour quot; we have " & caff_dose quot;mg") 'you can remove this line, just to show loop output

hour24_left = caff_dose 'so we have the second value

End While

MsgBox("The number of hours required until 65mg amount remain in the body is " & caff_half_dose_time)

MsgBox("The amount of caffeine in the body 24hours after the person drinks the coffee is " & hour24_left)

End Sub

End Class

The answer is 5 hours and 4mg.
