(Total Sales) Use a two-dimensional array to solve the following problem: A company has four salespeople (1 to 4) who sell five different products (1 to 5). Once a day, each salesperson passes in a slip for each type of product sold. Each slip contains the following:
a) The salesperson number b) The product number c) The total dollar value of that product sold that day.
Thus, each salesperson passes in between 0 and 5 (up to five) sales slips per day. Assume that the information from all the slips for last month is available.
Write an application that will read all this information for last month’s sales and summarize the total sales by salesperson and by product. All totals should be stored in the two-dimensional array sales. After processing all the information for last month, display the results in tabular format, with each column representing a salesperson and each row representing a particular product. Cross total each row to get the total sales of each product for last month. Cross total each column to get the total sales by salesperson for last month. Your output should include these cross-totals to the right of the totaled rows and to the bottom of the totaled columns.

Additional information for reading the input
Use a one dimensional String array for sales person.
Use a one dimensional array for storing Salesperson totals
Read the name of the sales person first and using a sentinel controlled while loop read the product number and dollar value of that product. Total number of products cannot exceed 5 as we are limiting the array for five products.
After reading all the input, use separate methods for computing totals and displaying the results

Expected output
Product Salesperson 1 Salesperson 2 Salesperson 3 Salesperson 4 ------- ------------- ------------- ------------- -------------
Total Sales -----------
220.00
175.00
160.00
120.00
95.00
1 120.00 0.00 2 100.00 75.00 3 0.00 85.00 4 0.00 0.00 5 0.00 0.00
100.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00 75.00 0.00 120.00
95.00 0.00 195.00 195.00

First of all read the question carefully, understand what is needed. Then on a page write everything what is needed, storage/variables/arrays/algorithms, Then do the coding.

Doing the problem on paper first helps you see the problem logically. If you dive straight into coding then you will face issues.

Hope that helps :)

You just copy/pasted your assignment without even a moment taken to explain what help you need. That's highly disrepestectful to the many people who give their time to help others here.

There are lots of people here who will freely give their time to help you become the best Java programmer you can be. There's nobody here who is interested in helping you cheat or doing your homework for you.
