### HELP!

A restaurant has 3 lunch combos for customers to choose:
Combo A: Fried chicken with coleslaw [price: 6.00]
Combo B: Roast beef with mashed potato [price: 6.25]
Combo C: Fish and chips [price: 5.75]

Write a program to calculate how much a group of customers should pay. The program first asks how many customers there are in the group. Then it asks the combo ordered by each customer. If case a customer does not want to order anything, the cashier will enter X, which means order nothing, into the program. When every customer in the group has placed his/her order, the program will display the number of each combo ordered and the total amount of this groupâ€™s bill.

Here is my code. I am failing miserably.

 ``12345678910111213141516171819202122232425262728293031323334353637383940414243444546474849505152`` ``````#include using namespace std; int main() { int customers = 0; char combo = ' '; int comboA = 0; double comboAprice = 0.0; int comboB = 0; double comboBprice = 0.0; int comboC = 0; double comboCprice = 0.0; int comboX = 0; double comboXprice = 0.0; double aDue = 0.0; cout << "How many customers are in your group?

On line 22, your for loop syntax is incorrect.
For loops follow the pattern `for(variable, condition, increment)`.
Your variable, counter, should begin at 0.
Your loop should continue while counter is less than customers; loop once per customer.
 ``1234`` ``````for(int counter = 0; counter < customers; ++counter) { //loop until counter >= customers, and increment counter each loop //.... }``````
