For this challenge you will create a flowchart to explain the process that a computer will have to follow to calculate the entry fees to an aqua park for a small group of visitors or a family.

Below is the price list of the aqua park:

#### Video Tutorial

Watch the video tutorial for step by step instructions on how to complete this challenge.

#### Task 1: Design the Flowchart

First you will design the flowchart for your algorithm. The aim is your algorithm is to:

- Ask the user how many adult tickets are needed,
- Ask the user how many child tickets are needed,
- Calculate the total cost of this order,
- Decide if this order qualifies for a 5% discount and if so, calculate the new total cost of the order,
- Output the total cost of the order.

#### Task 2: Python Code

Once your flowchart is complete, implement your algorithm using Python code.

#### Task 3: Test Plan

Test # | Type of Test | Input Values | Expected Output | Actual Output |

#1 | Valid | Adults: 2 Children: 1 |
Total Cost: £41 | |

#2 | Valid | Adults: 1 Children: 0 |
Total Cost: £15 | |

#3 | Valid | Adults: 2 Children: 3 |
Total Cost: £59.85 | |

#4 | Valid | Adults: 5 Children: 12 |
Total Cost: £196.65 | |

#5 | Valid Extreme | Adults: 0 Children: 0 |
Total Cost: £0 | |

#6 | Erroneous | Adults: abc Children: xyz |
Error Message |

#### Task 4: Adding extra validation routines

Tweak your code to add some **validation routines** when capturing user inputs. For instance, you want to make sure that the user only enters a **positive integer value** when asked for the number of tickets required.

You might find this blog post useful to ensure the user provides an integer value when asked to do so.

Adding **validation routines** when capturing user inputs is always a good approach to improve your programs and make them more **robust**.

You can investigate other forms of validation routines on this page.
