    Post I need help starting my pseudocode. My book doesn't explain it well at all.

    the question asks me. the following pseudocode describes how a bookstore computes the price of an order from the total price and the number of the books that were ordered.
    Read the total book price and the number of books.
    compute the tax (7 .5% of the total book price).
    Compute the shipping charge ($2 per book)
    The price of the order is the sum of the total book price, the tax, and the shipping charge.
    Print the price of the order.
    Translate this pseudocode into a java program.
    and my teacher gave me this to use.
    1.Book price 50 and number of books 20
    2.Book price 1 and the number of books ordered 1
    I haven't done this before and really need some help badly.
