  • Question

  • Widgets cost £9.99 each.

    Write a program that asks the user how many widgets they would like to buy.

    Users get a discount depending how many widgets they buy:

    1 – 5                       =             5%

    6 – 9                       =             7.5%

    10 or over           =             10%

    The program should calculate and display:

    1. The cost before discount
    2. The amount of discount
    3. The amount the user has to pay

    How do I work this out???

  • In pseudo code:

    Ask the user the amount

    cost=amount*9.99

    if amount<6  discount=0.05

    elseif amount<10 discount=0.075

    else discount=0.10

    discountamount=cost*discount

    topay=cost-discountamount.

    Try to write this in SmallBasic. If you run into trouble, ask again.
