# Stock Transaction Simulator Solution

Last month Tian purchased some stock in Acme Software, Inc. Here are the details of the purchase:

·         The number of shares that Tian purchased was 1,000

·         When Tian purchased the stock, he paid \$33.92 per share

·         Tian paid his stockbroker a commission that amounted to 2% of the amount he paid for the stock.

One week later, Tian sold the stock. Here are the details of the sale:

The number of shares sold was 1,000

He sold the stock for \$36.78 per share

He paid his stockbroker another commission that amounted to 2% of the amount he received for the stock.

Please write a program that displays the following information:

·         The amount of money Tian paid for the stock.

·         The amount of commission Tian paid his broker when he bought the stock.

·         The amount that Tian sold the stock for.

·         The amount of commission Tian paid his broker when he sold the stock

·         Display the amount of profit that Tian made after selling his stock and paying the two commissions to his broker (If the amount of profit that your program displays is a negative number , then Tian lost money on the transaction)

Input

This program requires that you read in the following data values:

Ø   Number of shares to buy (an integer)

Ø   Price to be bought (a real number)

Ø  Number of shares to sell (an integer)

Ø   Price to be sold (an integer)

You will use entirely interactive I/O in this program, that is, all input is typed in at the keyboard by the user (person running the program), and all output goes to the console window.

Test case output: (green texts are user input)

The number of shares you want to purchase: 1000

Purchase price: 33.92

The number of shares you want to sell: 1000

Sold price: 36.78

Tian has purchased 1000 at \$33.92 and then sold 1000 at \$36.78. He paid \$678.4 for broker fee when buying the stock and \$735.6 for broker fee when selling the stock. So his profit is \$1446.0 Good bye
