Hey guys, here is task number $\boxed{2}$!

As you can see, the name of this is CASHIER.

Plarry the Dinosaur has finally found a job as a cashier! (yay) However, the thing is, he is terrible at mental sum and wants you to write a code to help him in calculating the cost of items.

Input Details:

First line inputs n.

Next n lines input the cost of the ith item.

This line inputs x.

The next x lines are the items the purchaser bought, the number i representing the ith item.

Output Details:

The total cost of all the items.

Sample input:

3

0.25

5.67

10.01

2

3

1

Sample output:

10.26

Explanation for output:

The 1st item costs 0.25 dollars and the 3rd item costs 10.01 dollars. Thus, the total cost is 10.26 dollars. Note by Charlton Teo

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

And here is python2 solution below:

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 num = input() # input n price_list = [] # inserting price for ith item for n in xrange(num): price_list.append(raw_input()) items = input() # no of item bought cost = 0 # summing up prices for item in xrange(items): cost += float(price_list[input()-1]) print cost

sorry ur the only one who tried this daniel XD anyway my solution:

  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 #include using namespace std; int main() { int x,n; double p; double b = 0; cin>>x; for(int i = 0; i < x; i++){ cin>>p[i]; } cin>>n; for(int i = 0; i < n; i++){ int a; cin>>a; b+=p[a-1]; } cout<
