Course Overview1:56 with Jay McGavren
In this course, we're going to use Ruby to create a shopping program for widgets. People often buy them in groups of 50, 100, or more, even though they cost 10 dollars apiece. The widget store needs us to write a program that lets a user type in the number of widgets they want to buy, multiply that by 10 to get the total price, and report the total to the user. They're also thinking that they may need to offer discounts if a user is purchasing a large quantity.
