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)

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;

cin>>iPrices; //ask for price

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;
