Homework Help: Programming Design

Posted by Eric on Sunday, April 4, 2010 at 11:01am.

Velma and her husband Victor run a full service veterinary clinic. They would like a program to help them calculate costs for their clients. Victor, who is the vet, charges a flat fee of \$100 for medical services and a flat fee of \$50 for shots. Velma does the grooming. She charges a flat fee of \$20 to groom dogs, except for poodles. She charges an extra \$15 for poodles. She charges \$40 to bathe cats. Velma and Victor also board animals at the clinic. The fee to board a cat is \$15/day. A small dog is \$20/day. A large dog is \$25/day. Velma encourages owners to have their pets groomed while they are being boarded. (Dogs sometimes start to smell after a few days in the kennel, so it's really nice to give them a good bath before the owners pick them up.) In order to entice people to do this, Velma offers a discount for the combination of grooming and boarding. This discount is calculated based on the length of time in the kennel. If they were boarded for 3 days or less, the discount is 10% off the grooming. If they were boarded more than 3 days, then it is a 20% discount. Many times people bring in more than one of their pets at the same time, so make sure the program loops back up if they have more animals. (Hint: Notice the loop here.) The program should print out the total amount for the pet owner. I need to do the pseudocode for this problem.
