  3. Using the information below, complete a function point analysis in order to use the basic COCOMO model to estimate the duration and number of people needed to develop an application using C++. Assume that the project is relatively simple and straightforward and that the project team is familiar with both the problem and technology. You can perform the calculations by hand, but feel free to use an appropriate software tool.
