Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video Challenge: Ask for lunch choices, part of Learning C++.
…Are…you ready for our next challenge?…In this challenge, we're going to print out a lunch menu.…It'll have four items along with four prices.…We're going to ask the user to choose an item.…After they select which item they want, they're…going to tell us how many they want.…And then we're going to print out the total cost of their order.…In this challenge, I'd like you to create two parallel arrays.…One array will contain the lunch items,…such as hotdog, hamburger, french fries and salad.…Use a fifth option to allow the user to exit.…Have a corresponding parallel array that has the price of each item, the price of a…hotdog, the price of a hamburger, the price…of french fries, the price of a salad.…Then when the user enters in their choice, you're going…to use the parallel arrays to get the choice they selected.…Find out the cost.…Take the quantity that they ordered.…Multiply it to come up with their total price for the entire order.…And finally print it out.…I hope you have fun with this challenge.…
