    We can help you review what you have done, in terms of programming problems, pseudocodes, debugging, etc.

    You must have gone through a good part of the course, and it is time to apply what you have learned.

    Post what you can do or have done and get the project started.

    Good work!

    Usually customer like to know how the charges are broken down into fixed charges, rate, and number of hours, similar to your electricity bill. So you should include the input information as requested by the question.

    You'll still need to write the bill to a file.
