A Program for a Cinema Manager

Extracts from this document...

If this was done by hand, even with a calculator, it is very tedious and the manager wants an easy and most important of all quick. The program contains mathematical, statistical and financial calculations that can be applied to numbers, and it can even display values in the form of graphs and pie charts. The reason I want to use this program is because it is a very powerful, if the manager wants to see what would happen if he raised or lowered a price he could see exactly what happens to the rest of his calculations, if he changes an employee's wages, everything is automatically updated. ...read more.
