Frans Virtual Fruit Stand
Fran’s Virtual Fruit Stand is an online store that sells several types of dried fruit. Based on the needs of Fran’s Virtual Fruit stand, you must design a flowchart using Visual Logic. The flowchart must also be a fully functional program which follows the design requirements below.
Note: This program does not require the use of arrays. The program will prompt for data on a single item, process that data, display any relevant messages as described below, and then move on to the next item. Use the “console” option in the output command to display the output in a single window. Displaying the output can be accomplished with as few as three (3) variables that simply get overwritten each time the loop repeats.
Using Visual Logic, design a flowchart that is also a fully functional program. According to your design, the program must:
Continually accept data regarding the purchase of fruit until a sentinel value is entered.
Prompt the user for each item, and accept the name of the fruit (e.g., “dried apples”), the price per pound, and the number of pounds sold in a month.
Display a clear message for items that are considered:
Note: Best-selling items are identified as those that sell 5,000 or more pounds per month on average. For example, an acceptable message may read, “Yellow raisins are a best-selling item.”
Note: Big-ticket items are identified as those that are best-selling items and also cost $4 per pound or more. For example, an acceptable message may read, “Freeze-dried blueberries are a big-ticket item.”
Note:High-priced items are identified as those that sell for $7 per pound or more. For example, an acceptable message may read, “Dried mangos are a high-priced item.”
Note: Lowest-selling items are identified as those that sell 500 pounds or less per month on average. For example, an acceptable message may read, “Dried Ugli Fruit is a lowest-selling item.”
