Im completely new to programming, and this is my problem.
For example, if a train travels 40 miles per hour for three hours, the distance trav-eled is 120 miles. Design a program that asks the user for the speed of a vehicle ( in miles per hour) and how many hours it has traveled. It should then use a loop to display the distance the vehicle has traveled for each hour of that time period. Here is an example of the output:

What is the speed of the vehicle in mph? 40 [ Enter]
How many hours has it traveled? 3 [ Enter]

I can get it up until the point where I have to make a loop, and then it completely loses me. If anyone could help me with this flow chart id greatly appreciate it.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum. Im completely new here.

Basic for loop

``````for (int hours = 1; hours <= totalhours; hours++)
{
// Compute distance travelled - distance = hours * speed
int distance = hours * speed;
// then print the disance using cout
cout << "After " << dec << hours << " hours at " << speed << " mph, "
<< "the distance travelled is " << distance << " miles." << endl;
}
``````

You get to figure out the flow chart... :-)

Thanks for the reply. Ill try to decipher that :D
