Ok. I have been struggling with this. I need to make a program that allows the user to buy their lunch. They pick from a menu what they want and then the computer spits out what their Bill is. They type in the size of the bill they will use ($50,$20,$10,$5 etc.) and the computer calculates how much change you will get. It tells the exact number of quarters, dollars, toonies, dimes, nickles, penny's, 5's, 10's (you get the point lol) that you will need. I need help with this. PLEASE HELP!!

ok general rule of thumb. If your asking for help we have to assume you've done some work on it as such post your code. No one here is going to write the entire program for you. On top of that, this is probably an assignment, handing someone elses work in is considered plagerism and will not be tollerated.

some sujestions though... use arrays to store your lists of food items and another array for prices... have a variable to count the total... as for the change, its same as converting numbers to binary... find the largest change(or even bill) you can fit in the remainder of the change to give out, untill you get down to pennies. such as for $1.67 its $1, 2 $0.25, $0.1, $0.05, 2 $0.01

easy...use mod..what does the bill minus price equal?...take that...mod it by 2 (toonies), then subtract that number times two from the change, then mod it by 1 and repeat until you reach 0.01...then you will be done...understand?

no, its the exchange rate... its something like $1 = 20 rubles... so a 100 is $5... hmm... you can buy a submarine for $25... ya, he must be from russia

alignment... :number after a string sets the minimum size string has to be and adds spaces to output to match that number, so you can have preaty looking columns... second :number sets presision of real values (desimal places)

Well how do i get that code to loop over and over and the total continusely adds up and is displayed at the end, with the exact coins they will get back.

turing's mod is screwed up, there is a rounding error

This code should loop it forever although i would suggest asking the user if they wish to continue. 
Author:  Miko99 [ Wed Jun 11, 2003 9:22 am ] 
Post subject:  
That code doesn't keep everything the user selects in memory. I need it to keep everything. so i fi select 6 things, then i get charged for 6 things.
