Several Choices

Often there are several options that might be included in a major purchase. Each one might be accepted or rejected. Pretend you are buying a new car:

You have decided to buy a new sports car. The base price is $20,000. There are two options:

The price of the car is the base price plus the price of the options. Write a program that calculates the price of the car.

Here is an incomplete version. The user is expected to enter "1" to mean true and "0" to mean false. (There are better ways to do this which will be covered later in these notes.)

import java.util.Scanner;
class CarPurchase
{
  public static void main (String[] args) 
  { 
    final int basePrice  = 2000000;   // base price in cents
    final int pinPrice   =   25000;   // pin stripe price
    final int brakePrice =   80000;   // anti-lock brake price

    Scanner scan = new Scanner( System.in );
 
    int answer;
    int totalCost = basePrice;

    System.out.print("Do you want pin stripes (0 or 1)? ");
     
    answer = scan.nextInt();        
    if (  )
    {
      totalCost = totalCost + pinPrice;
    }

    System.out.print("Do you want anti-lock brakes (0 or 1)? ");
    answer = scan.nextInt(); 
    if (  )
    {
      totalCost = totalCost + brakePrice;
    }

    System.out.println("Total cost is: $" + 
        (totalCost/100) + "." + totalCost%100 );
 
  }
}

Notice how the number in totalCost is accumulated: it is initialized in its declaration, then added to in each of the true branches.

QUESTION 10:

Fill in the two blanks to complete the program. You may wish to copy the program to an editor and try it out.
