Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video Solution: Hospital stay, part of Up and Running with Java.
- I hope you had fun with this last challenge.…The challenge was meant to get you started…with adding decision-making logic,…loops, and optionally, methods.…Let's take a look at my solution.…Remember that your solution might be very different.…There are a few lines of code that will be new,…but I think it will help you understand…how you can expand on the information…I've already provided.…Let's walk through the code.…In the main method, I start by declaring variables…that I'll need for both an in-hospital…and outpatient stay.…
I have medication charges, lab service charges,…hospital charges, and then total cost.…I added a string variable called "response."…This will allow me to ask the user…if they have another patient.…If they do, I'll run through the loop again.…Otherwise, I'll exit.…In my solution, I use a do-while loop.…I say, "Do."…The first thing I do is check to see…if it's an overnight stay.…I created a method for this, but you wouldn't have to.…Let's take a look at the method real quick.…It returns a Boolean variable…
