Use input statements to get the requested items and store them in variables, the occupation should be stored in a string variable, the amount of the bill and the percentage could be in type decimal.

Write a sub procedure that accepts three arguments, namely the values input earlier, and display the person's occupation and the tip. You can calculate the tip by multiplying the bill amount and the percentage. If the bill comes to 50\$ and the percentage is 15%, you would calculate 50*15/100=\$7.50.
