Chapter 3 – #1: Miles Per Gallon – Tony Gaddis – Starting Out With C++

>_ Problem

Write a program that calculates a car’s gas mileage. The program should ask the user to enter the number of gallons of gas the car can hold and the number of miles it can be driven on a full tank. It should then display the number of miles that may be driven per gallon of gas.

>_ Solution

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
    // Variables
    float num_of_gallons,
    // Ask user for num of gallons
    cout << endl;
    cout << "Enter number of gallons the car can hold: ";
    cin >> num_of_gallons;
    // Ask for num of miles car can drive on full tank
    cout << "Enter a number of miles the car can be \n";
    cout << "driven on a full tank of gas: ";
    cin >> full_tank_miles;
    // Calculate num of miles the car can drive per gallon
    MPG = full_tank_miles / num_of_gallons;
    // Display calculation
    cout << "The car gets " << MPG << " miles per gallon.";
    cout << '\n' << endl;
    return 0;
