- It's time for your next Challenge.…In this Challenge, I want you to write a program…that computes and displays the total yearly expenses…for a student in college.…The student might be living on campus…or in a nearby apartment, or commuting.…If the student is living on campus,…we need to ask for the number of weeks…they'll be living on campus,…the duration of stay.…The estimated weekly living expenses,…not including room and board,…and the cost of room and board.…For all students we need to also ask for…their name, what year are they entering,…freshman, sophomore, junior, senior?…The estimated cost of textbooks, pencils, paper…all the supplies that they'll need for the year.…
The number of credit hours they're taking,…and the cost for each credit hour.…Use that information to calculate…the total cost for attending college for one year,…and print the final total.…Write separate methods for each request,…and only use the mean method to call the other methods.…This challenge should probably take…about 20 minutes.…It's a little more challenging than the first one,…
