This assessment is designed to assess your understanding of variables, constants, types, operators, input/output, loops, if statements, classes, objects and functions.


Create a C# application that calculate and displays membership fees for N customers who registered for membership from a gym club based in Sydney, Australia. The standard charges of membership are shown below

Length of Membership Rate (including tax)
1-8 weeks $40.0 per week
8-16 weeks $35.5 per week
More than 16 weeks $25.0 per week

Specific Requirements

 # The application should ask the user to enter the customer name, the number of months for membership, and yes or no to indicate whether the customer receives a special offer or not. The special offer will give customers a 20% discount of the membership no matter how many weeks they register.

 # Assume that the number of week to be entered is an integer type with the range between 1 and 30. An error message should be issued if a user enters a value beyond this range and the re-entering is required.

 # The program makes a calculation of membership and displays the result as shown in the below figure. The program should be kept running with entering next set of input data.


 # After all M sets of input data are entered from the keyboard, your program will display a summary table such as below:


 # You program will also identify and display the information that includes the customer spending most, the customer spending least as well as counts of display how many members with the number of months are less than 8 weeks and greater than/equal 8 weeks as above.

 # The application should be user-friendly by displaying appropriate welcome, exit and error message. Your program should be run as normal without changing any source code except setting M with a different value.
