Question details

I was wondering if someone could look at these problems and let me know what errors you see.

The pseudocode in this case is an algorithm

  1. A store sells cups and plates for parties. The owners want a program that allows them to enter the price of a cup, the price of a plate, the number of cups purchased, the number of plates purchased, and the sales tax rate. The program should calculate and display the total cost of the purchase.

Inputs

Process

Outputs

cupPrice

totalCost

platePrice

cupNum

plateNum

taxRate

Pseudo Code:

  1. Enter cupPrice and platePrice
  2. Enter cupNum and plateNum
  3. Enter taxRate
  4. Calculate total of plates and cups by multiplying cupPrice by cupNum/platePrice by plateNum, then add together.
  5. Multiply taxRate by total and add to total to find totalCost.
  6. Display totalCost

  1. A sales manager wants a program that allows him to enter the sales made in each of two states. The program should calculate and display the commission, which is a percentage of the total sales. This percentage is called the commission rate and is 12%.

Inputs

Process

Outputs

firstState

commissionTotal

secondState

commissionRate

Pseudo Code:

  1. Set value of comissionRate to .12
  2. Enter firstState and secondState
  3. Calculate commissionTotal by adding secondState and firstState then multiply the total by comissionRate and add together.
  4. Display commissionTotal

15000

12000

.12

(15000+12000=27000)
27000*.12=3240
3240+27000= 30240

1000

900

.12

(1000+900=1900)
1900*.12=228
228+1900= 2128
