    Code:
    int main()
    {
    Instructions();	// if needed
    option = Menu();
    switch(option)
    {
    	case 1:	// do stuff
    	.
    	.
    	.
    	default:	// do stuff when incorect input is entered
    }
    //Continue outputting menus of options and inputting choices as much as needed
    Calculations(/*variables go here*/);
    Output(/*variables go here*/);
    return 0;
    }
    There's something rough to get you started. It sounds to me like you just need to think this through using top-down design. Decompose your large problem into small problems that can be coded as functions. As a general rule, try to keep functions small enough so that you can view at least a whole one at once on your screen.

    I don't know how else to help you. If you don't understand top-down design, you can search the web or buy a book. This seems like a really simple problem to me. If you need any specific help, ask a specific question in this forum. I hope this has helped you. Good luck
