This is my program but i cant get it to calculate my cost
These are my calculations:
1) if the color of the car is blue and the cost of the car is less than 1200 add 10% of the cost of the car to the cost of the car

2) If the color of the car is black and the cost of the car is greater than 100 but less than 1500 add 20% of the cost of the car to the cost of the car

3) If the color of the car is white and cost is less than or equal to 2000 then subtract 500 from the cost of the car

// actual cost of car and color of car

Hi
Your calculation of the percentage is wrong.
e.g you want to add 10% you write

f_ccost = f_acost + 10.0/100;

but it should be

f_ccost = f_acost + f_acost*10.0/100;
