Have you tried to solve the problem yourself?
Post your code and we will offer some suggestions.

Obviously you will need interactive input so use

//to prompt the user for input use
cout<< ...
//to obtain input from the keyboard use

yes i have tried here is what i came up with i know im dumb =[
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
Const song cost=$0.89;
const taxrate=5%;
string song artist;
int quantity;
double total cost taxes;

cout<<"what is the name of your favorite song"<<endl;
cout<<"name of favorite artist"<<endl;


First of all please use code tags when posting code. Thanks.
Your variable names cant have spaces. Make it one word or put underscores between the words.
const should start with a lowercase c not capital.
Obviously you'll also need to set a return value of 0 and close the main() with a }
