So I am new at C++ and here is my code. Everything works except the last part. I need to display the grade after punching in the corresponding letter. and if the grade is an "I" or an incomplete the entire midterm grade has to be "incomplete" with a note saying please see your advisor. the last part keeps giving me the first grade of 95 no matter what letter i punch in. any ideas? #include "stdafx.h"

#include <iostream>

#include <string>

#include <cmath>

int main (void)

{double homeworkgrade1,homeworkgrade2,homeworkgrade3,homeworkgrade4,homeworkgrade5;

char midtermproject;//The output of the midterm project will be a character

double midtermgradevalue;//will be a double variable

char incomplete;

cout<< "Enter your grade for the midterm project use capital or lower case";

cin>> midtermproject;

if(midtermproject=='a'|| 'A') midtermgradevalue=95;

else

if( midtermproject== 'b' || 'B') midtermgradevalue=85;

else

if (midtermproject== 'c' || 'C') midtermgradevalue=75;

else

if (midtermproject== 'd' || 'D') midtermgradevalue=65;

else

if (midtermproject== 'f' || 'F') midtermgradevalue=55;

else

if{midtermgradevalue== 'i' || 'I'midtermgradevalue= 0;

cout<<"Please see your advisor about your incomplete"<<endl;}

cout<<"Midtermgrade is:"<<midtermgradevalue<<endl;

return 0;

}

(midtermproject=='a'|| 'A')will always evaluate astrue, because 'A' is not 0. Rewrite as:(midtermproject=='a'|| midtermproject=='A')Or better yet, convert the input into either upper or lower case and do only half the number of equality checks.
