so i have been sitting here for about 2 days finishing this thing and i still have one error left and i am having a hard time fixing it

1>k:\c++\energy bill part 3\energy part 2.cpp(119) : error C2059: syntax error : ';'

here is my code

thanks for your help

Neither you nor your compiler are being very helpful. Please give some idea about where line 119 is in your code. That's the first place to look. It may not end up being the place with the error, but chances are it's in that neck of the woods.

I could take a stab at it and point out the last comma in this line is superfluous which is another way of saying the semicolon is unexpected, but such a stab is likely to be wrong.

int holdu, holdc, p, i,;

i add the line numbers but they are off by 2 so line 100 is actually 102
