Software Development: Gas Calculation 2
Introduction
The Gas Calculation Project has been awarded to our software development team that in
return will write a program that will calculate the sales of gas at the pumps. This will be done by
offering leaded and unleaded gas along with two offerings, “Gas-n-Go” and “Full-Service”. The
purchase of gas, whether leaded or unleaded needs a calculation of a federal sales tax on the gas
purchased only, along with a calculation of a sales tax that does not include the federal tax
amount. In addition to this, if the customer chooses the “Gas-n-Go” or the “Full-Service”
program, those charges are also calculated with the sales tax on this amount.
Problem Statement
The problem at hand is the issue of creating a program for the customers business. The
customer is asking for a program that will calculate the charges that are accumulated through the
gas pump. The program must determine the available option of service as well as type of
gasoline being purchased, and then calculate state and federal taxes to come to a final total. The
must be able to distinguish between options being selected in order to calculate the proper price
for service selected, type of gasoline selected, amount of gasoline and then apply the state and
federal taxed for total amount due to the customer.
When the problem is solved all calculations will be made through the pump giving the
customer options when selection how he/she wished to receive fuel and which type of fuel. State
and federal taxes are applied to every service not matter what service is selected. The program
needs to be versatile enough to work on different locations in order to be used throughout the
customers company.

Software Development: Gas Calculation 3
The program needs to be as accurate as possible and tested so there are no errors with the
calculations. In order to be up to government regulation the calculations needs to be accurate so
that taxes are not overcharged and the correct amount of gas is being calculated for the customer.
Testing should be done by several individuals to check for accuracy in programming as well as
application functions.
The inputs in this project will be:
The percentage of the federal sales tax.
The service charge for the “Gas-n-Go” program.
The service charge for the “Full-Service” program.
The outputs for this project will be:
The total amount of leaded gas purchased with the federal sales tax calculated.
The charge of the leaded gas purchase with the sales tax calculated.
The total amount of the leaded gas purchase sale with no extra service charge.
The total amount of unleaded gas purchased with the federal sales tax calculated.
The charge of the unleaded gas purchase with the sales tax calculated.
The total amount of the unleaded gas purchase sale with no extra service charge.
The charge of the leaded gas purchased with the federal tax calculated, the service
charge of the “Gas-n-Go” and the sales tax calculated.
