hey guys. the following code should return a percentage of the current values of the object. I keep getting 0 returned. If this isn't enough code let me know.

``````Money test = ourAmount.percent ( 10 ) ;
test.output ( ) ;``````
``````const Money Money::percent ( int percentFigure )
{
return ( percentFigure / 100 * dollars + percentFigure / 100 * cents ) ;
}``````
``````void Money::output( ) const
{
int absDollars = abs(dollars);
int absCents = abs(cents);
if (dollars < 0 || cents < 0)//accounts for dollars == 0 or cents == 0
cout << "\$-";
else
cout << '\$';
cout << absDollars;

if (absCents >= 10)
cout << '.' << absCents;
else
cout << '.' << '0' << absCents;
}``````

I've narrowed it to here somehwere (i think)

``dollars = dollars * ( percentFigure / 100 ) ;``

you are using integers, so the program drops all fractions. percentFigure / 100 is 0 for all values of percentFigure less than 100. Change data types to float and it will work as you expected. Use a double.

Also you might want to consider using brackets () around statements such as `percentFigure / 100 * dollars + percentFigure / 100 * cents` to be extra sure it is evaluating the expression in the correct order.

Also change the single quotes for " in your cout statements . Although it is not wrong it keeps some consistency and you are less likely to make a boo boo. `cout << ' 0 ';`

I had already tried this. It's still not outputting anything other than 0. However, I just tried doing 100/100 * dollars to see if it would work and it did output the correct answer for that equation. Where else should I have changed the int to double?

post curent code because I can't see your monitor from where I am sitting.

I don't see where you declared the class variables.
>>line 130
>>dollars = dollars * ( 10 / 100 ) ;

What is that supposed to do ? That is still integer math which will result in 0. 10 is an integer and 100 another integer, Code it like this and it will work

``````dollars *= 0.1

or
dollars /= 10.0;``````

Of course dollars must be declared as either float or double if you want to see the fractional parts.

what is line 175 supposed to do? If you want dollarSign why not just hardcode it? People don't normally require the dollar sign as part of the input, only the digits and possibly negative sign.
