# Need this in basic C , just the solution in text form

Write a C program for the Grocery store checkout counter.
Ask and Enter the price of each item. The program should
display the total bill amount using one decimal digit. Use a tax rate of 8.5%. Use increment operator to keep
track of the number of items processed. Compute the bill amount using the tax rate. Show the bill amount (1 decimal digit)and the number of items processed.
(Assume the counter can process less than or equal to 5 items only -i,e, Express Lane counter)

I Real4me I hope this will solve Ur problem

Here with I am giving the code

#include<stdio.h>

main()
{
int nitems=0; // no of items
float total=0.0,price,tax=0.0;

do
{
printf("Enter Item.%d) Price:(0 to exit):: ",nitems+1);
scanf("%f",&price);
tax=price*0.085;// tax calculation
total+=tax+price; // total calculation
if(price!=0)
{
nitems++;
printf("No.of Items: %d  Total Amount with 8.5%% tax:%.1f \n",nitems,total); // printing the total
}
if(nitems==5) // checking for no.of items
break;
}while(price!=0); // if price is 0 it will come out
printf("\n\nNo.of Items Purchased: %d\nTotal Bill Amout with 8.5%% tax: %.1f \n",nitems,total);
}

because I know next to nothing about C, but I need the grade and I need to learn ...so I thought if I put it out here and some one puts it in form...I'll be able to understand it better..and have something to work from trying to operate this compiler...can you answer them?? pleaseeeeee..yep!!! I'm begging

Ok so here's some of the basics well pretty much all you have to do is get it to loop.

int iNumItems = 0;
double itotal;
cout<<"Enter Item Prices:\n";
double iPrices;

iNumItems = iNumItems + 1;  //update number of items
itotal = iPrices + (.087* iPrices); ///get total with tax

//output it all
cout<<"Total Price:";
cout<<itotal;
cout<<"\nTotal Items:";
cout<<iNumItems;

bill=total[i]+tax[i];
}
for(i=0;i<5;i++)

cout<<"item"<< i<<"\t"<<total[i]<<"\t"<<tax[i]<<"\n";
}
cout<<bill;
