    Default Need help with school question

    Hi all, i just got this question today and need to submit the answer in two days.
    I don't know how to do this or even how to start it, i so much need your help. Here is the question:

    Master Video Club sells and rents movie videos to customers.
    To borrow a movie video a customer must register with Master Video Club. A
    registered customer can borrow any number of movie videos for a maximum of 3
    days. If the movie video is not returned after 3 days the customer is fined a fixed
    penalty. The customer must settle the fine to be able to rent movie videos.
    A customer can buy any number of movie videos. The manager purchases new
    movies from suppliers and makes a maximum of ten copies for each movie. A copy is
    removed from stock if it is damaged. The copies are available for rent or for
    purchase. Master Video Club keeps a minimum of 3 copies for rental to its registered
    customers.
    Tasks:-
    You are required to identify the requirements from the scenario given above and
    implement a system for Master Video Club using Java as programming language. The
    system must provide basic functionalities for:-
    - creating a new movie
    - adding copies of new movie to stock
    - perform a sale
    - perform a rental
    - return a movie
    - update stock
    - adding a customer
    - purchase a new movie from a supplier
    You can add other relevant functionalities as per the scenario.

    It looks more like a programming assignment than a question.
    What have you tried? Do you have any specific questions about the assignment?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Work on one problem at a time. When you get it solved, move to the next problem.
    What is the current problem you are working on?

    Start by making a list of the classes needed and the methods that are needed.
    classes are for things
    methods do something with/for the thing

    For example:
    To borrow a movie video a customer must register with Master Video Club
    The red items would be methods,
    the green items would be classes
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
