how to calculate car insurance premium based on the age,Licence and Engine size

That sounds like you need a formula that takes those values and some constants to compute the premium.

What problems are you having getting the values needed and computing the premium?

Re: I need help Please i ll be appreciated any of you could help 80 80

I don't next if u could give me so hint about that formula it will be great thanks

Re: I need help Please i ll be appreciated any of you could help 80 80

Sorry about my poor English I meant I don't know what do next could u give some hint about the formula

Re: I need help Please i ll be appreciated any of you could help 80 80

I have no idea what formula you need. You need to get that from the person that gave you the assignment.
I'd assume there would be a rate based on ranges of ages: higher for younger drivers, average for middle aged people and then higher for the very old.
Larger engines could be more expensive,
No idea what license would do to the rate.

Re: I need help Please i ll be appreciated any of you could help 80 80

yeh i know there must be rate in terms of value of the premium

let say if i decide to charge the young drivers around 800 for year and middle age 6500 for year how would i do that sorry as i said i'm new to this and i 'll be appreciate if you could give me an example or hints how is going to will work thanks

Re: I need help Please i ll be appreciated any of you could help 80 80

On paper, Make a table of the rates based on the ages. For example:
age rate
1-12 400
13-25 600
26-50 300
51-65 350
66-90 500

Then in the program use if statements to select the rate base on the age as set in the table of rates you have decided on.
