    Talking Please help me with this Cashier program

    Write a java program that calculates the changes for a cashier. The program request the cost of the item. The Program then outputs the cost of the item including the sales tax. (use 6% as the sales tax value). The program next request is to receives the amount tendered by the customer, finally the program ouputs a summary of all figures, including the amount of change due to the customer.[/B]

    This is my code
    import java.io.*;
    public class Change{
    public static void main(String [] args)throws IOException{
    BufferedReader Stdin = new BufferedReader (new InputStreamReader(System.in));

    double cost;
    double tax;
    double payment;
    double getCost();
    double getTax();
    double getPayment();

    i need to apply these methods too:
    void setCost(double x)
    void setTax(double x)
    void setPayment(double x)

    using Peso currency and centavos
    Thank you,

    Where are you having a problem?
    Make a list of the specific, detailed steps the program must do.
    Start at the first item in the list.
    Design and write the code for it, compile it, fix the errors, compile it, when no errors execute it to see what it does. You will need to add some println() statements to print out the values of variables to check if the code did the right thing.
    When that works, move to the next step in the list.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
