Forgive me if I'm being overly suspicious but this looks 
like a homework exercise. Even if it isn't you will get 
a better response if you show us what you've done so far
and explain why you need help with it - like what bit 
doesn't work.

As for some ideas to get started, try solving the problem 
by hand, as if you were the computer. Then reverse engineer 
what you did and tell the computer to do the same. There 
may be more efficient algorithms but at least it's a start!
