Hi everyone, I'm having problems with the output of this coding and I would really appreciate the help.

The assignment requires to show how someone's taxes are distributed by first ask the user for the amount of money (dollar[] and income) and at the same time prompt for the taxes in decimal (tax[]) form. Then it should output the input in a tax table, output the computed amount for 4 brackets, and output the total.

The problem is that my assignment also requires me to use the switch statement. Here's the code:

```
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
//Global Amount/Tax Variables
float dollars[2];
float tax[2];
float income, tax_l, total;
int a = 0;
//Function
void input();
void output();
int main()
{
input();
output();
return 0;
}
//Input Function
void input()
{
//Inputs
for (a = 0; a <= 2; a++)
{
cout << "Please enter the amount and the tax (0.XX form) for Tax Bracket " << a+1 << " :";
cin >> dollars[a] >> tax[a];
//Switch Conditions
switch(a)
{
case 0:
{
if (dollars[0] < 0 || dollars[0] < dollars[1] || dollars[0] < dollars[2])
{
cerr << "\aERROR! INPUT FOR BRACKET 1 IS NOT VALID.";
goto done; //Leave the loops if the 'if' conditions are met
}
}
break;
case 1:
{
if (dollars[1] < 0 || dollars[1] < dollars[2] || dollars[1] < dollars[0])
{
cerr << "\aERROR! INPUT FOR BRACKET 2 IS NOT VALID.";
goto done; //Leave the loops if the 'if' conditions are met
}
}
break;
case 2:
{
if (dollars[2] < 0 || dollars[2] < dollars[1] || dollars[2] < dollars[0])
{
cerr << "\aERROR! INPUT FOR BRACKET 3 IS NOT VALID.";
//Error if 3rd input is less than zero
goto done; //Leave the loops if the 'if' conditions are met
}
}
break;
}
}
//Input of the last tax and the income
cout << "Please enter the tax percentage for the income above " << dollars[2] << " :";
cin >> tax_l;
cout << "\nPlease enter your annual income :";
cin >> income;
done: ;
}
void output()
{
tax[0] *= dollars[0]; //Tax Computation
tax[1] *= (dollars[1] - dollars[0]);
tax[2] *= (dollars[2] - dollars[1]);
tax_l *= (income - dollars[2]);
float total = tax[0] + tax[1] + tax[2] + tax_l;
cout << "Bracket 1 Tax = " << tax[0] << endl; //Output of Tax Computation
cout << "Bracket 2 Tax = " << tax[1] << endl;
cout << "Bracket 3 Tax = " << tax[2] << endl;
cout << "Bracket 4 Tax = " << tax_l << endl;
cout << "Total Tax = " << total;
```

Test amount is 14999 0.02

24999 0.03

34999 0.05

0.06

56000

Only Bracket 2 Tax output is correct and I also found that insertion of the output in the input() function still gives the same wrong outputs.
