i have some code.. sorry i'm a newbie.. first time c++ programming...

I want to change the INTS into DOUBLES....
But doubles can't handle the % function...
DOes anyone know how to solve this???

#include <iostream.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <math.h>

void main()
{
int hoeveelbetalen,methoeveelbetaald,wisselgeld;
cout << "Hoeveel moet u betalen? ";
cin >> hoeveelbetalen;
cout << "Met hoeveel geld betaalt u? ";
cin >> methoeveelbetaald;
wisselgeld = methoeveelbetaald - hoeveelbetalen;
if (wisselgeld < 0)
{
  cout << "" << endl;
  cout << "U heeft te weinig geld gegeven!" << endl;
  system("pause");
  return(0);
}
else
{
cout << " " << endl;
cout << "==========================================" << endl;
cout << "Totale wisselgeld: " << wisselgeld << endl;
cout << " " << endl;
cout << "Teruggegeven: " << endl;
cout << " " << endl;

   
   
    int vijfhonderd = wisselgeld / 500;
    wisselgeld = wisselgeld%500;
    int tweehonderd = wisselgeld / 200;
    wisselgeld = wisselgeld%200;
    int honderd = wisselgeld / 100;
    wisselgeld = wisselgeld%100;
    int vijftig = wisselgeld / 50;
    wisselgeld = wisselgeld%50;
    int twintig = wisselgeld / 20;
    wisselgeld = wisselgeld%20;
    int tien = wisselgeld / 10;
    wisselgeld = wisselgeld%10;
    int vijf = wisselgeld / 5;
    wisselgeld = wisselgeld%5;
    int twee = wisselgeld / 2;
    wisselgeld = wisselgeld%2;
    int een = wisselgeld / 1;
    wisselgeld = wisselgeld%1;
   
    if (vijfhonderd !=0)
    cout << vijfhonderd << " Vijfhonderdje(s)" << endl;
    if (tweehonderd !=0)
    cout << tweehonderd << " Tweehonderdje(s)" << endl;
    if (honderd !=0)
    cout << honderd << " Honderdje(s)" << endl;
    if (vijftig !=0)
    cout << vijftig << " Vijftigje(s)" << endl;
    if (twintig !=0)
    cout << twintig << " Twintigje(s)" << endl;
    if (tien !=0)
    cout << tien << " Tientje(s)" << endl;
    if (vijf !=0)
    cout << vijf << " Vijfje(s)" << endl;
    if (twee !=0)
    cout << twee << " Tweetje(s)" << endl;
    if (een !=0)
    cout << een << " Eentje(s)" << endl;

}
system("pause");

A currency exchange program, yes?
Because it is currency, you can multiply everything by 100, or whatever the smallest currency unit is, and deal with whole numbers. I'd suggest this since it is faster and *more accurate* than dealing with decimal (double) values.

If you must deal with double values, you can make your own % (modulo) function since the current one only deals with whole numbers.

double modulo(double InStartValue, double InFactor)
{
   while(InStartValue>=0)
      InStartValue-=InFactor;
   return InStartValue+InFactor;
}
0

What you can also do to figure out the change, is to split the change into two:  One for guilders (I'm assuming you are Dutch) and one for cents and then process each separtely.

So you'd have something like

float hoeveelbetalen,methoeveelbetaald,wisselgeld;
....
wisselgeldguilders = (int) wisselgeld;
wisselgeldcents = (int)((wisselgeld - int(wisselgeld))*100);

Now you simply process each seperately and print out the results one after the other

Sorry, that should be:

int wisselgeldguilders = (int) wisselgeld;
int wisselgeldcents = (int)((wisselgeld - int(wisselgeld))*100);

Note that in general, because of vagueries in the encoding of fractions in floating point numbers, it is better to use integers to represent money.
