    New to the forum, need a bit of help/guidance

    I have to write a program for an assignment,

    basically the program must work out the amount tat each person should pay towards a tea kitty each week. Each person drinks drinks drinks a day. 1 pint of milk makes 1 drinks, the teabags come in boxes of 480 teabags(1 teabag makes 1 drink) and the bag of sugar is used to make 100 drinks.


    I just dont know where to start(im not askin for someone to do it for me but for some pointers),

    i obviously declare the variables at the start i got that bit but its the rest of the program

    Id appreciate your help,

    It's just a mathematical problem. You start by solving the problem on paper. Then you code the method you used to solve it into a program.

    i obviously declare the variables at the start
    That's not at all obvious. Instance variables can be declared at the end, or spread all over the class (the latter is a really bad idea, though). Local variables can (and should, IMO) be declared where they're first used.

    Not for C#, no. All I know about C# (not very much, actually) I learned from a tutorial, some playing around with it, and mostly a lot of knowledge of Java and C++.
