    Exclamation JavaHelp (Discount Calculator)

    I'm trying to create a class that stores the number of units sold and has a method that returns the total cost of the purchase.

    It displays a small chart with the quantity and percent discount.

    I cant figure this out, can anyone help?





    below is the the code I have so far. :( :confused: :eek:



    import java.util.Scanner;

    public class salescommision
    {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
    double
    total = 99, //The total price before the offered discount was supposed to be 99$
    quantity,
    discount = 0,
    cost = (total-discount);


    Scanner keyboard = new Scanner(System.in);

    System.out.println("This program calculates the discounts "
    + "3 test scores.");


    System.out.print("Enter quantity: ");
    quantity = keyboard.nextDouble();



    total = (total * discount);
    System.out.println("The total is " + total);

    // The goal is if between these number of quantities you will get a certain percent discount
    if (total < 19)
    System.out.println("20%");
    else if (total < 49)
    System.out.println("30%");
    else if (total < 99)
    System.out.println("40%");
    else if (total < 100)
    System.out.println("50%");
    }
    }

    1.) Please use code tags when posting code.
    2.) What happens when you attempt to compile/run your code and what did you expect instead?

    :confused:The exact assignment is:

    A company sells a package for 99$. Quantity discounts are given according to the current table.

    Quantity Discount
    10-19 20%
    20-49 30%
    50-99 40%
    100 or More 50%

    Design a class that stores the number of units sold and has a method that returns the total cost of the purchase.






    My outcome is: (with 23 entered, but any # can be).

    Enter quantity: 23
    The total is 99.0
    20%


    I have to somehow make an if/else statement that calculates percentages and displays in the println? But I keep trying and failing, If you could help at all or lead me to a better direction I would really appreciate it.
