i work for the hole tax consulting corp i had created this program below changed variables to not show the company materials.   i have to modify the C program so that the user inputs the purchase amount. Check the user’s input for validity. Have the user select from a menu which store to use for the tax calculation. Calculate and display the tax amount for the store selected and the total sale amount for that store.  can you please help me.

# include <stdio.h>
void main(void)
{
//entering the variables in float
float cost = 0.0;
float delmar = .0725;
float encinitas = .075;
float lajolla = .0775;
//entering
scanf ("%f",& cost);
printf ("the delmar sales tax is %.2f\n", delmar * cost);
printf ("the encinitas sales tax is %.2f\n", encinitas * cost);
printf ("the lajolla sales tax is %.2f\n", lajolla * cost);
printf ("\n");
printf ("the total for delmar is %.2f\n", delmar * cost + cost);
printf ("the total for encinitas is %.2f\n", encinitas * cost +
cost);
printf ("the total for lajolla is %.2f\n", lajolla * cost + cost);
getchar();
}

Hi mannyfresco,

There's a special page for 'C' questions. Would you like me to move this question there?

If by create a menu you mean have some sort of graphical user interface for entering prices and purchases, you are way on the wrong track using C99

He is using C99, not C++, your code does not apply programmer1024

No probs programmer1024. I think asker wants C and your C++ demonstrates how to do it but not what to do, which is ideal I think.

This should get you going:

Change:

printf("You selected encinitas\n");

to

printf("You selected encinitas\n");
}

Track each error from its line number. You WILL get them all in the end. This self-discipline is one of the most difficult to learn in programming. There is no point trying to avoid it. Your program wont run until it compiles.

thanks for your advice all that happened was that i used microsoft word to create the program then i copied and pasted into the c compiler.  i got the answer done.
