# C++ project 1&2

Learning Goal: I’m working on a c++ project and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

You work for a local shipping company named East County Box Company. This company ships large boxes and crates across the country.

You have been tasked with making the cashiers’ lives easier by creating a calculator that takes the size of the crate and the cost per cubic foot and determine the customer’s cost.

Requirements:

• You will ask the user for the width, length and height of the package
• The program will then calculate the volume and display the volume
• The volume will then be calculated against the standard rate of \$2.50 per cubic foot and display that number
• Because we live in California, the program then calculate the sales tax of .0775 per dollar and display that number
• A total will be calculate and displayed. This creates the invoice for the transaction.

Things to remember:

• I want clean code. This means that it must be readable. If you are unclear about this, review chapter 2 section on proper code forming.
• All numbers are required to be associated with a properly expressed variable. The variable name should indicate what it is for.
• The output display has to be properly labelled. When collecting information from the user be sure to explain to the user what information you are requesting.
• When displaying calculations, label what the number is.

Output: MUST look like (Red numbers are used to indicate user input):

Sales Program (version 1.5)

Enter package dimensions (feet):
Length: <strong>5</strong>
Width: <strong>2</strong>
Height: <strong>2</strong>

Package Volume: 20 cubic feet

Shipping Cost (\$2.50 per cubic foot)                    \$      50.00
Sales Tax (0.0775)                                      \$       3.88
Total                                                   \$      53.88

For this project, we will be expanding on Project 1.

The box company you work for in an attempt to bring in more customers has decided to offer fluctuating prices based on the cubic feet of the package. The new rates are:
Small Packages under 15 cf = \$1.50 per cf
Medium Packages 15 cf to 45 cf = \$2.50 per cf
Large Packages over 45 cf = \$3.00 per cf

Requirements:
You will create variable for each of the three package sizes, initiating each to the price per cubic foot.
To determine which price to use, you will use either if statements or switch statements to accomplish this task.

The box company has decided to put a limit on the size of the packages. It will no longer ship packages larger than 65 cubic feet. The company wants to cashiers alerted to packages that are too large during the dimensions collection.

Requirements:
Create a loop around to dimensions collection of your program so it checks to make sure the package is under the more than 65 cubic feet limit and to give the cashier a chance to change the dimensions in case of input error before it gets processed for a price. (Hint: you will need to initiate your dimension variables)

Formatting:

You MUST use iomanip formatting tools to produce the following:
