I am getting the expected `(' before '{' token around line 75 and 76. I need help with this so that I can compile and run my program.

Line 75 starts at:

if{15 < Total_minutes <= 30){

Edited 5 Years Ago by Nick Evan: Added CODE tags

It should be

if(15 < Total_minutes <= 30){

You used '{' after if which should be "("

It should be

if(15 < Total_minutes <= 30){

You used '{' after if which should be "("

That won't work either

if(Total_minutes > 15 && Total_minutes <=30){
}

is the correct way to write it.

You cannot compare one value with two values at the same time. The < operator has left to right associativity. The if statement will always be true. If Total_minutes is 1 then 15 < Total_minutes will be 0 and 0 <= 30 is true. If Total_minutes is 90 then 15 < Total_minutes will be 1 and 1 <= 30 will also be true. You can think of it like this:

if ( (15 < Total_minutes) <= 30)

15 < Total_minutes will evaluate to 1 or 0 which is always less or equal to 30.
