Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video Challenge: Make a cashier app, part of Learning C++.
…And now for the fun part, the challenge.…This challenge is asking you to write…a program that will simulate a cash register.…Ask for the price of an item, the payment amount from…the customer, and then print out the change due to the customer…but print it out as dollars, the number of quarters, the…number of dimes, the number of nickels, and the number of pennies.…Hint, this is a good opportunity to work with modules or remainder division.…
Also allow the user to enter multiple transactions.…I would estimate about 15 minutes to complete…this task, so take your time and have fun.…
