## Mod and If Statement

Hi there,

For some reason I can't get my mod to make my variable in the if statement to go up a number. Any help would be appreciated!! it is suppose to add the remainder (if any) and make the numberOfRolls go up by one, did I not do set it correctly? Do you need to see more of the code? 35 is the sqft of the roll btw, and you can only order a whole roll at a time.

Java Code:
```numberOfRolls = (roomExtra/35.0)+(roomExtra%35.0);
if(numberOfRolls >0)
{
numberOfRolls = numberOfRolls +1;
}
System.out.println("The total number of rolls needed: " + f.format(numberOfRolls));```

Hello,
I'm sorry, but the problem statement doesn't appear to be very clear to me. As long as your entire code isn't too long, could you please paste the entire code? I mean, if roomExtra was 71, then numberOfRolls would be 2+1 = 3. Then add another?

## Re: Mod and If Statement

Absolutely! Thank you so much for looking at it!!

Java Code:
```import java.util.Scanner;
import java.text.DecimalFormat;

public class WallpaperRolls
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
//Create Scanner object
Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);

//Create variables
float lengthOfRoom;
float heightOfRoom;
float widthOfRoom;
double roomArea, totalArea;
double roomExtra;
double numberOfRolls;
double totalCost, pricePerRoll;

DecimalFormat f = new DecimalFormat("0.00");

//Get room dimensions
System.out.print("What is the length of the room (in ft)?: ");
lengthOfRoom = input.nextFloat();

System.out.print("What is the height of the room (in ft)?: ");
heightOfRoom = input.nextFloat();
System.out.print("What is the width of room (in ft)?: ");
widthOfRoom = input.nextFloat();

// Get price per roll
System.out.print("What is the price of the wallpaper?:\$");
pricePerRoll = input.nextDouble();

//Calculate area
roomArea = ((2 * lengthOfRoom * heightOfRoom) + (2 * lengthOfRoom * widthOfRoom));

//Calculate mistakes
roomExtra = ( roomArea*1.10);

//Calculate number of rolls
numberOfRolls = (roomExtra/35.0)+(roomExtra%35.0);
if(numberOfRolls >0)
{
numberOfRolls = numberOfRolls +1;
}
System.out.println("The total number of rolls needed: " + f.format(numberOfRolls));

//Calculate total area
totalArea = roomArea;
System.out.println("The total area of room is " + f.format(totalArea));

//Calculate total cost
totalCost = (numberOfRolls * pricePerRoll);
System.out.println("The total cost of wallpaper:\$" + f.format(totalCost));

}
}```

Thanks for posting the code. It appears to work as required for me (adds an additional roll inside the if statement). The result I got was 9.14 rolls. I used the following inputs as test conditions.

length = 5
width = 5
height = 5

roomExtra = 110

110/35 = 3.14
110%35 = 5

3.14 + 5 = 8.14

Ok! thank you very much! I guess I just thought that it should be a whole number and not a decimal number, so I thought that it wasn't working properly. thank you so much for your help!

## Re: Mod and If Statement

I've looked at your code a little more closely and something doesn't make sense to me. For example, if my roomExtra was 72 sqft, you would really just need 3 rolls, right? If so, your code would calculate that you would need 5 rolls. Am I missing something here?

//Calculate number of rolls
numberOfRolls = (int) (roomExtra/35.0); //round down to integer
if(roomExtra%35.0 >0) if remainder, add a roll
{ numberOfRolls = numberOfRolls +1; }
