I am a newbie to c++... Today I was handed a assignment on "array"...While working on this...I've met plenty of errors... I wonder where did my steps gone wrong...
May anyone out there borrow me a helping hand??

We're willing to help, but you'll have to share at least the first couple errors with us. Without them, we don't really have any idea where to start looking.

At first blush, I suspect you are getting lots of errors related to array boundaries/limits. You need to remember that arrays start at element (0) not element (1). For example, int myArray[5] = {0,0,0,0,0}; produces:

myArray[0] = 0;
myArray[1] = 0;
myArray[2] = 0;
myArray[3] = 0;
myArray[4] = 0;

There is no element called myArray[5] , any attempt to access this element will cause issues.

In short, an array's elements are [0, (SIZE-1)].

the highlighted part below...
the error was "unable to convert parameter"
may i know what does it mean?
and regarding fbody's previous reply, is the correction done in the code below?
Thanks

This one is correct...

This one is not...

for (i=1,i<=5,i++)
 {
 cout<<"Please insert the price of the product."<<endl;
     cin>>price[i];
 cout<<"Please enter the quantity."<<endl;
 cin>>quantity[i];
 }

You are getting the parameter error because you are sending a specific array element as an argurment rather that the complete array. You will have to change your calling statement to send the array itself, or change your function definition to only accept a single value rather than an array of values. Based on your function definitions, I would recommend changing your calling statements.

use the code tag while posting the source code

when using for loop u must use semi colon ";"

do not use commas ","

i should be like

for (int i=0; i<10; i++)

and in first if condition stocknumber shoud be specified with array index value like this

if ((stocknumber[i]>=1) && (stocknumber[i]<=9999))

and on line 68, 69 inside the for condition

for (i=1;i<=5;i++)
{
pricetopay[i]=calpricetopay(quantity[i],price[i]);
discountprice[i]=caldiscountprice (discount[i],pricetopay[i]);
priceafterdiscount[i]=calpriceafterdiscount(pricetopay[i],discountprice[i]);
cout<<"Price to pay="<<pricetopay[i]<<endl;
cout<<"The price of the item after discount="<<priceafterdiscount[i]<<endl;
}

here u are trying to convert different datatypes which is not possible.

and in many places u have used variable " i " for the loops and conditions some of them are not declared, u have to declare a new variable or initialize the i every time u use it inside the loop or condition

try to code a single function at a time and see if that executes properly. and then proceed to the next function.

Hope this helps ya

Edited 3 Years Ago by mike_2000_17: Fixed formatting

"i" is declared as an int at the beginning of main() and initialized as part of each for loop, so that's not an issue. The first parameter is an "initialization" statement, not necessarily a declaration statement, you don't have to declare your iteration variable there, or use the statement at all for that matter. The issue is the value of the initialization and the range used. I'll admit though, I didn't notice the comma vs. semi-colon thing.
