Mini Project 1


You work for a local shipping company named East County Box Company. This company ships large boxes and crates across the country.

You have been tasked with making the cashiers’ lives easier by creating a calculator that takes the size of the crate and the cost per cubic foot and determine the customer’s cost.


  • You will ask the user for the width, length and height of the package
  • The program will then calculate the volume and display the volume
  • The volume will then be calculated against the standard rate of $2.50 per cubic foot and display that number
  • Because we live in California, the program then calculate the sales tax of .0775 per dollar and display that number
  • A total will be calculate and displayed. This creates the invoice for the transaction.

Things to remember:

  • I want clean code. This means that it must be readable. If you are unclear about this, review the chapter 2 section on proper code forming.
  • All numbers are required to be associated with a properly expressed variable. The variable name should indicate what it is for.
  • The output display has to be properly labeled. When collecting information from the user be sure to explain to the user what information you are requesting.
  • When displaying calculations, label what the number is.
  • please explain step by step on separate pdf and explain how were you able to plug in the number and which app was used

Output: MUST look like (Red numbers are used to indicate user input):
