Homework Help: Computers

Posted by Thomas on Thursday, July 4, 2013 at 8:54pm.

Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

#include <iostream>
#include <iomanip>
using namespace std;

int main()

//Constants for adult and child ticket costs
const double cost_per_child_tix = 3;
const double cost_per_adult_tix = 6;

double adult, //Amount of adult tix sold
child, //Amount of child tix sold
movie, //Holds movie name
gross_adult_tix, // Holds gross amount of adult tickets
gross_child_tix, // Holds gross amount of child tickets
total_box_office_profit, //Holds total box office profit
net_box_office_profit, //Holds total earnings for theater
amount_paid_distributor; //Holds final amount paid to distributor

//Set the desired output formatting for numbers.
cout << setprecision(2) << fixed << showpoint;

//Prompt the user for the movies name
cout <<"Please enter name of movie:" << endl;
cin >> movie;
cin.ignore(256, '\n');

//Get adult tickets sold
cout << "Enter number of adult tickets sold: \n";
cin >> adult;

//Get child tickets sold
cout << "Enter number of child tickets sold: \n";
cin >> child;

//Calculate gross amount for adult tickets sold
gross_adult_tix = adult * cost_per_adult_tix;

//Calculate gross amount of child tickets sold
gross_child_tix = child * cost_per_child_tix;

//Calculate gross box office profit
total_box_office_profit = gross_child_tix + gross_adult_tix;

//Calculate net box office profit (Theater earnings)
net_box_office_profit = total_box_office_profit * .20;

//calculate amount paid to distributor
amount_paid_distributor = total_box_office_profit - net_box_office_profit;

//Display movie name and header for daily earning report
cout << "Daily earnings report for movie:" << movie << endl;

//Display amount of adult tickets sold
cout << "Adult tickets sold:" << adult << endl;

//Display amount of child tickets sold
cout << "Child tickets sold:" << child << endl;

//Display gross amount for box office profit
cout << "Gross box office profit:" << total_box_office_profit << endl;

//Display net gross amount of profit
cout << "Gross net box office profit:" << net_box_office_profit << endl;

//Display amount paid to distributor
cout << "Amount paid to distributor:" << amount_paid_distributor << endl;


return 0;
