# Parking garage charges a minimum fee program using C++

A parking garage charges a minimum fee of \$2.00 to park for up to 3 hours. The garage charges an additional \$0.50 per hour for each hour or part thereof in excess of 3 hours. The maximum charge for any given 24-hour period is \$10.00. Assume that no car parks for longer than 24 hours at a time. Write a program that will calculate and print the parking charges for each of 3 customers who parked their cars in this garage yesterday. You should enter the hours parked for each customer. Your program should print the results in a neat tabular format, and should calculate and print the total of yesterday's receipts. The program should use the function calculateCharges to determine the charge for each customer. Your outputs should appear in the following format:

Car Hours Charge

1 1.5 2.00

2 4.0 2.50

3 24.0 10.00

Total 29.5 14.50

#include <iostream>
#include <iomanip>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <string>

using namespace std;

const int CARS = 3;
static int hours[CARS] = {0, 0, 0,};

void enterHoursParked()
{
for(int i=0;i<CARS;i++)
{
cout << "Enter the hours parked for each car"<< i;
cin >> hours[i];
}

}

float calculateCharges(int ilen)
{
float finalCharge;

if (ilen <= 3)
finalCharge = 2;
if (ilen >= 19)
finalCharge = 10;
if (ilen > 3)
finalCharge = 2 + (float)(ilen - 3) * .50;

return finalCharge;
}
void printCharges(int carno, int hours, float finalCharge)
{
if(carno == 0)
cout << "Car Hours Chargen";
else
cout << (carno)<<" "<< hours<<" "<< finalCharge<<"n";

}

int main()
{

cout << "Welcome!" << endl;
enterHoursParked();

for (int i = 0; i <= CARS; i++)
{
float finalCharge = calculateCharges(hours[i]);
printCharges(i,hours[i],finalCharge );

}

int l;
cin>>l;

return 0;
}
