We are more than willing to help those that are stuck: but that doesn't mean that we are here to do it all for you! We can't do all the work, you are either getting paid for this, or it's part of your grades and it wouldn't be at all fair for us to do it all for you.
So we need you to do the work, and we will help you when you get stuck. That doesn't mean we will give you a step by step solution you can hand in!
Start by explaining where you are at the moment, and what the next step in the process is. Then tell us what you have tried to get that next step working, and what happened when you did.

It sure may be homework, but then again: If different phrasings are both accepted by the compiler, it is legitimate to ask if they are identical, even if it is not homework .
If "const int *ptr" is identical to "int const *ptr", is it then identical to "int *const ptr" as well? If you can shift the "const" keyword one position, why not two? There are several cases (in various languages) of modifiers that can be written in any order (when there are more than one). Knowing when order/position is significant and when it isn't (and which orders/positions are illegal) can be quite confusing until you have built expertise in the language!
