Can anyone steer me in the right direction, so basically I have to write a program for building a computer. I have to keep it limited to 3 components i.e Hard drive, monitor, CPU. of those 3 components they have 3 different options i.e Hard drive 500gb, 1TB, 2TB. The user picks one of each of those upgrades and the program is supposed to add up those 3 prices of the components + baseline computer cost + sales tax = total price.
I am a beginner and my teacher did not really give any help for this type of coding, I just want to know where to start looking. I know it may have to with a loop but I just want to be sure.
help writing program to add prices of components.

It sounds like the easiest way to do this is to have three variables ( hardDrvie, monitor, CPU) take the value of the variables using input/output
std::cout << "Please select the Hard Drive..." << std::endl;
std::cout << "1.) 500 GB\n 2.)1TB\n 3.)2TB" << std::endl;
std::cin >> hardDrive;
then use and if/switch statement to determine the value of the variable.
ex: if (hardDrive == 1)
hardDrive = 100;
do that for all variable. After collecting all the variables do something like
totalCost = hardDrvie + monitor + CPU + baseline computer cost + sales tax;
Used in many types of software including music players, video games, and many large scale applications.
