Write a program that can be used by a small theater to sell tickets for performances. The theater's auditorium has 15 rows of seats, with 30 seats in each row. The program should display a screen that shows which seats are available and which are taken. For example, the following screen shows a chart depicting each seat in the theater. Seats that are taken are represented by an * symbol and seats that are available are represented by a # symbol:
seats
123456789012345678901234567890
Row 1 ######*########*****####
Row 2 ####****#####***************##
Row 3 ######*************#######
Row 4 ######**************##******
Row 5 ********#####********#########
Row 6 ###############*********######
Row 7 #######************###########
Row 8 ***************##****#########
Row 9 ##########*********#####******
Row 10 #****************#############
Row 11 #************#######********##
Row 12 #################*********###*
Row 13 ###************########
#####
Row 14 ##############################
Row 15 ##############################

Here is a list of tasks this program must perform:

1) When the program begins, it should ask the user to enter the seat prices for each row. The prices can be stored in a separate array. (Alternatively, the prices may be read from a file.)

2) Once the prices are entered, the program should display a seating chart similar to the one shown above. The user may enter the row and seat numbers for tickets being sold. Every time a ticket or group of tickets is purchased, the program should display the total ticket prices and update the seating chart.
3) The program should keep a total of all ticket sales. The user should be given an option of viewing this amount.

4) The program should also give the user an option to see a list of how many seats have been sold, how many seats are available in each row, and how many seats are available in the entire auditorium.
Input Validation: When tickets are being sold, do not accept row or seat numbers that do not exist. When someone requests a particular seat, the program should make sure that seat is available before it is sold.

Edited 1 Year Ago by alanleegod: i have no idea to start so can you help me out?

Please refer to our rules which state: "provide evidence of having done some work yourself if posting questions from school or work assignments"

If you can show that evidence, by way of the code you have so far and where you are getting stuck, maybe someone can help you out. As it stands, you have just copied your homework assignment and seem to be expecting someone else to do it for you - ain't gonna happen!
