I do not have a clue here. I am floundering along but not getting anywhere. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

/*This is a program that processes a loan for a car using appropriately named variables.
It will use those variables in the input, calculation, and output of this program. This
program works on a payment plan with zero interest and sales tax fixed at 6%. The car
in this program is driven 1000 miles per month.*/

#include <iostream>
#include <string>
using namespace std;

int main ()
{
	int number;
    string name;

	//Variable declarations

	cout << "for"; << "months.";"When it is paid off,; << you will probably have;<< miles on it."; << endl;
}

These are my beautiful errors but what it is asking for I think is corrected.

Edited 6 Years Ago by __avd: Added [code] tags. For easy readability, always wrap programming code within posts in [code] (code blocks).

cin statements put input into the variables you declared. The actual values, Bronco, 2005, 12345, etc will be entered during runtime in response to the program's prompts.

In the cout statements u don't but ; before << operator. for example if u want to display a variable between text u write it this way:

cout << "Your 2005 Ford Bronco costs "<< cost << " $ after sales_tax";

in your cin statements, use your declared variables (ex. year, make, model) for what you want to be inputted. When you run the program, the type you enter for each question will be stored as each value (careful that you don't try to store 'Bronco' as an int value). When outputting after you have inputted your values, just use cout then the variable

Ex.)

//Program for adding two numbers
#include<iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
    int one,two,sum;
    cout << "Enter number 1 : " << endl;
    cin >> one;
    cout << "Enter number 2 : " << endl;
    cin >> two;
    sum=one+two;
    cout << one << " + " << two << " = " << sum;

    return 0;
