### Question

A metric ton is 35,273.92 ounces. Write a program that will read the weight of a package of breakfast cereal in ounces and output the weight in metric tons as well as the number of boxes needed to yield one metric ton of cereal.

Program Code:

``````#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main ( )
{
//Variables declaration
double const METRIC_TON = 35273.92;
double ounce,boxes;
double weight;
double numOfBoxex;

//Prompt and read the input from the keyboard
cout<<"Enter the weight of a package of breakfast cereal in ounces:";
cin>>ounce;

//Calculate the weight in metric tons and display it
weight = ounce/METRIC_TON;
cout<<"The weight of the cereal: "<<weight<<endl;

//Calculate the the number of boxes needed to yield one
//metric ton of cereal and display it
numOfBoxex = METRIC_TON/ounce;
cout<<"The number of boxes of cereal that will hold a ton: "<<numOfBoxex<<endl;
system("PAUSE");
return 0;
}

``````

Output:

Enter the weight of a package of breakfast cereal in ounces:100

The weight of the cereal: 0.00283496

The number of boxes of cereal that will hold a ton: 352.739
