Program to ask students for text book cost and calculate total for unknown number of students then output a report.
 C. Assignment: 1. This program will simulate an electronic means to calculate textbook costs for an unknown number of students for the college bookstore. 2. An output report should look similar to the following example: Student Textbook Purchases Report ***************************************************** Student Book Book Tax Book Id Code Cost Amount Subtotal --------- ------- ------ ---------- ---------- 1111 B 80.00 ? ? 1111 C 70.00 ? ? Total number of books purchased: ? Total books cost including tax: ? ***************************************************** Student Book Book Tax Book Id Code Cost Amount Subtotal --------- ------- ------ ---------- ---------- 2222 M 40.00 ? ? 2222 S 50.00 ? ? 2222 P 90.00 ? ? Total number of books purchased: ? Total books cost including tax: ? ***************************************************** Student Book Book Tax Book Id Code Cost Amount Subtotal --------- ------- ------ ---------- ---------- 3333 E 30.00 ? ? Total number of books purchased: ? Total books cost including tax: ? ***************************************************** Grand Totals: Total number of students who purchased books: ? Total number of books sold: ? Total cost of all books and taxes: ? ***************************************************** 3. Inputs: a. Student Id b. Book Code c. Book Cost 4. Output values on the report for each student: a. Student Id b. Book Codes c. Book Costs d. Tax Amount e. Book subtotal 5. The following totals need to be calculated for each student: a. Total number of books purchased b. Total books cost including tax 6. The following totals need to be calculated at the end of the report after all of the student book purchases have been entered and calculated for each student: a. Total number of students who purchased books b. Total number of books sold c. Total cost of all books and taxes 7. Processing events: a. A loop will be needed to process all the data so that one report can be generated for all of the students and their purchases. b. The total number of students who purchase books can be any number of students so the loop that is needed should be controlled by inputting a sentinel value of “-9999” for the student id to determine when the loop to process each student’s purchases should end. c. After the loop ends, the grand totals should be printed. d. The sales tax rate that should be used to calculate the tax cost per book is 7 percent.
