    So what kind of trouble are you having?

    Does the code compile without errors/warnings?

    If not please post the entire error messages.

    Is it does compile what are your inputs, your outputs, what did you expect?

    >> if (tiksold>10000) bonusContribution=0;
    Why would you earn no bonus for selling so many tickets?

    >>else if ((tiksold<10000) && (tiksold<25000))
    Couldn't be what you want. What number less than 10000 is not also less than 25000?

    >> else if (tiksold<49999 && tiksold>100000)
    No single number satisfies this.

    This is an input:

    Code:
     
    	cout<<"How many tickets were sold? "<<endl;
    	cin>>tiksold;
    What did you input?

    You are getting a 0 for your output.

    What did you think your program would produce?
