Adding a missing area code

Problem Statement

  • When giving their phone numbers to businesses, people with a local area code just give the last 7 digits.
  • Write a program to prompt the user for a phone number using the format 888-888-8888 where the area code is optional.
  • Print back to the user their phone number with the area code.
  • Use good coding habits

Solution

/*
Test Case 1:
Input: 888-8888 (w/o area code example)
Expected Output: 801-888-8888
Actual Output: 801-888-8888
 
Test Case 2:
Input: 541-888-8888 (w/ area code example)
Expected Output: 541-888-8888
Actual Output: 541-888-8888
 
Test Case 3:
Input: 8888888 (malformatted input)
Expected Output: 8888888 (expected malformatted output)
Actual Output: 8888888
