Hello guys!

I want to program something that tells me how many gallons of paint I need and what the total cost of the painting . I gotta say I am new to this, I hope the question dosen't seem that silly

I hope everything is right. But I do have a question about the following code..Code:// Headers and Other Technical Items #include <iostream> using namespace std; // Function Prototypes void pause(void); // double length; double width; double height; double price_gal_paint; int coverage_gal_paint; double total_area; int total_gal_paint; double total_cost; //****************************************************** // main //****************************************************** int main(void) { // Input cout << "\nEnter the price of 1 gallon of paint"; cin >> price_gal_paint; cout << "\nEnter the length of the house "; cin >> length; cout << "\nEnter the width of the house "; cin >> width; cout << "\nEnter the height of the house "; cin >> height; cout << "\nEnter the amount of square foot one gallon will cover "; cin >> coverage_gal_paint; // Process // calculate the total area of the building by x = length * height * 2 ; y = width * height * 2; total_area = x + y; //calculate the number of gallons of paint needed by total_gal_paint = total_area / coverage_gal_paint; total_gal_paint = total_area / coverage_gal_paint + 0.9999; total_cost = total_gal_paint * price_gal_pain; // Output cout << "\nThe number of gallons of paint is -------->: "; cout << answer; cout << "\nThe total cost of the paint is -------->: "; cout << answer; pause(); return 0; } //****************************************************** // pause //****************************************************** void pause(void) { cout << "\n\n"; system("PAUSE"); cout << "\n\n"; return; }

I know it cant be just x and y now. But if I did total_area for x and y it wouldn't calculate it right. I think I have enough variables.. I don't know.. I kinda don't know how do do this part.Code:// calculate the total area of the building by x = length * height * 2 ; y = width * height * 2; total_area = x + y;

I believe I need to more variables for this..?

Thank you!!
