How to work this programming problem-
Write a program that allows the user to input a total dollar amount for an online shopping order and computers and outputs the shipping cost based on the following schedule

Order total Ship within USA Ship to Canada
Less than \$ 50.00 \$6.00 \$ 8.00
\$ 50.01- \$ 100.00 \$ 9.00 \$ 12.00
\$ 100.01- \$150.00 \$ 12.00 \$ 15.00
Over \$ 150.00 Free Free

Basically programming is to express what you would do in a programming language.

This is what I would do if I did it by hand:

1. Tell me how much the order total
(example: \$88)
2. Determine the destination
(example US)
3. Locate from the table the shipping cost (for US)
0-50 \$6
50.01-100 \$9
100.01-150 \$12

Since \$88 is within the 50.01 to 100 bracket, the shipping cost (to US) is \$9.
4. Print "Shipping cost to US is \$9 for an order of \$88"

What I just wrote is called a pseudocode.
You will need to adapt this to the programming language of your choice.
