Edit: wrapped in code block

Use a loop:

while ( /* the amount isn't enough */)  {

      /* collect more money and add it to the amount */


 /* now make change if it is too much */

I leave the actual code to you to figure out.

can someone help me with the code? I am stuck and can't think anymore. The program so far makes sure that there are two chances to deposit and it does NOT give out change if someone paid more than the cost. can someone give me the line of code that finishes the rest? I appreciate your help and thanks TRK3

don't you have a debugger? you should be able to see why your program is not working as expected by setting a breakpoint and stepping through the code

I don't think anybody is going to bother giving you the code -- what you are asking for is simple enough that you ought to able to work it out yourself with the hints we are willing to give you. psycho00range almost gave you the entire answer and you are still having trouble with it.

Maybe you should explain the point of the exercise. Is this a homework assignment?
GivenAmount before this loop is $5
AmountNeed before this loop is $10
while(GivenAmount&lt;AmountNeeded) //after first pass because you have(12) more than amount needed(10) it will skip this loop again and break out going to give you change
cout &lt;&lt; "Still need $" &lt;&lt; AmountNeeded-GivenAmount &lt;&lt; ":" &lt;&lt; endl; //should out put 'Still need $5:'
cout &lt;&lt; "How much would you like to give?";
cin &gt;&gt; Give; //lets give $7 more dollars here
cout &lt;&lt; endl;
GivenAmount += Give; //GivenAmount = (before second ask)5 + (after ask)7 = 12
//change will always be given so no if statement should be used here
Change = GivenAmount - AmountNeeded //Change = 12 - 10
cout &lt;&lt; "Your Change is $" &lt;&lt; Change &lt;&lt; endl; // Your Change is $2</pre>

All you have to do now is implement this into your coding....i give you a base now you change everything around so you make it work for yourself

thank you so much but it still tells me that GivenAmount and AmountNeeded are undeclared and I am stuck thanks for the help guys.

what i wrote is not meant to just plug into what you have to make it your own and able to work with your classes. GivenAmount and AmountNeeded are just names i came up with so you could read it easier
