Any idea how to write this in C++ code....
A parking garage chages a $2.00 minimum fee to park up to three hours.
The garage charges an additional $0.50 per hour for each hour or part thereof in excess of three hours. The maximum charge for any given 24-hour period is $10.00. Assume that no cars park for longer than 24 hours at a time.

How do I write a program that calculates and prints the parking charges for each of the three customers who parked their cars in this garage yesterday.
Entering the hours parked for each customer. The program should print the results in a neat tabular format and should calculate and print the total of yesterday's receipts. The program should use the calculateCharges to determine the charge for each customer. The output should appear in the following format:

Car Hours Charge

1 1.5 2.00
2 4.0 2.50
3 24.0 10.00

Total 29.5 14.50


read in the number of hours from the user using cin.
if the number is <= 3, then charge is 2
else if the (number of hours - 3) * .50 + 2 > 10, it is $10
else the answer is (number of hours - 3) * .50 + 2
use the cout formatting w/ ios:: crap to tabulate it

i think u should start with a pseudocode first.

Hey thanks ZE_VIRU$......I found the code from another sorce. It was a little longer but it worked....THANKS AGAIN

i would be interested in knowing how you worked it out if you don't mind

Here you go I hope this helps!!!
