IN THE FOLLOWING PROGRAM
THE USER IS TO ENTER A SINGLE CHAR O FOR OIL G FOR GAS
THE NEXT LINE IS A REAL NUMBER FOR THE COST OF A WELL
NEXT LINE THE USER A CHAR S FOR SULFUR OR CHAR N FOR NO SULFUR
IF S THIS IS FOLLOWED BY THE PERCENT OF SULFUR PRESENT

MY PROBLEM IS THTA I CAN CALC S BUT I CAN SEEM TO CALC N
THE PROBLEM APEARS TO BE IN MY IF STATEMENT BUT I CAN'T SEEM TO FIND IT:
ENCLOSED IS A COPY OF THE CODE AND THE ANSWERS I GET FOR S AND N.

Hi tbell000,

I'll give you just 2 suggestions

1) indent your code, so that it will be clear what you're doing, and when (if the condition is true or not)
2) I've found a couple of {} that were misplaced, try with this one

STILL WILL NOT SOVLE FOR N THE PROBLEM SEEMS TO BE HERE

  if( wellType == 'G' ) //This is the calculation of the gas content
     {
          revenue = gasCost * (wellVolume - (wellVolume * sulfurPresent));
          cout<< "The gas revenue is $ " << revenue <<endl;
     }

     else
     {
          revenue = gasCost * wellVolume;
          cout<< "The gas revenue is $ " << revenue <<endl;

Just add this else statement after u check about sulfer content.
-----------------------
 if( sulfurContent == 'S' )
     {
          cout << "Enter Sulfur present in percent" << endl;
          cin >> sulfurPresent;
     }
else {
           sulfurPresent = 0;
    }
