Good day,

This is where I start, below is a practice and my solution for a problem statement that I have to right an algorithm for.

Is my solution correct?

Will my if statement compare the 3 values and come up with the best by?

Please enlighten me...

Problem Statement

Rebecca needs to buy a bag of Milie meal. She wrote down the prices of 500 g, 750 g and 1 kg of Milie meal. Determine which one of the packets is the best buy. Do the calculations and display which packet she should buy. The user should be prompted to enter the prices for all three packets.

My answer is as follows

variables used:

price500g real

price750g real

price1kg real

bestBuy string

if price500g * 2 < price1kg AND price750g + 250 then

bestBuy = 500g

else

price750g + price750g / 3 < price500g * 2 and price1kg then

bestBuy = 750g

else

price1kg < price500g * 2 AND price750g + price750g / 3

bestBuy = 1kg

endif

endif

endif

~Display results

display "The Milie meal to buy is", bestbuy

end
