Hi all,

I am a first year student at northeastern and my VB professor assigned me a project that i am just stuck on. This is my first programming course and i honestly am a newbie at it so i hope you guys can help. Here is my situation.

A parking garage charges a 10 minimum fee to park for up to three hours. the garage charges an addtional 3.25 per hour excess of three hours. the maximum charge for any given 24-hour period is 40.00. Parking validation from a merchant allos a 10% discount on the total charges. a parking pass provides parking for up to 12 hours at no charge with a charge of 3.25 for each addtional hour or part thereof. customers with a husky card get 5 hours free with the 3.25 per hour chagre for all remaining hours. Assume that no car parks for longer than 24 hours at a time. wrtie a program that will calculate and display the parking charges for each customer who parked his or her car in this arage. You should enter the hours parked for each customer along with their license plate number and state. If they are from NJ,CT or NY add an addtional 5.00 for an obnoxiia surcharge.

I have designed the GUI if anyone is up to take a look i can either email it to you or send it to you over Aim. Thanks again.

This coding was done by comatose he was awesome and extremely helpful in explaining and making a newbie like myself understand VB alittle more clearly. The comments were also done by comatose to help the user understand what he is actually doing step by step. Here is the complete program code. To make this project work.

``````' /* Declare Variables */

Dim total As Single

hours = hours - FreeTime

total = 0
Else

' /* So, set tmp to hours remaining (after free time) times 3.25 (feeRate) */
tmp = hours * feeRate
' /* Total Equals Total Ammount They Owe, PLUS The Value of Tmp (3.25 * whatever) */
total = total + tmp
