    I wasn't questioning the necessity of the question, just guessing at most likely what the answer was going to be based on trends I have seen.

    But again, guessing is pointless. We would probably all guess the same thing, but the point is that we don't know.
    If the OP is required to use those things, then there is not much we can do. If not, then we should steer the OP onto the correct path.
    We are trying to inquire whether we need to do that or not, so taking a wild guess here just won't cut it.

    I am doing this for a class and the book that is assigned to help us actually really sucks. I've found reading stuff online and through forums helps to learn a lot more efficiently. I am a complete beginner to all of C++ and hence why some of my code rudimentary and basic.

    On the bright side, I am learning a lot even though I am being difficult by asking so much. Thank you for baring with me.

    I need to learn to completely follow through on my code when making edit. I had changed in the variable but failed to recognize to change it to double[items].

    auto * price = new double[items];
