    Hi everyone. I am very new to C++ and taking a class. I have a program due on Monday and I ran into a wall. The programs calls for us to make mailing labels. They must be in this format:

    Michael Smith
    555 Lincoln Way
    Philadelphia, PA 24211
    Box 1 of 5

    The odd labels must be on the left and the even on the right they should be sent to the output file in the layout

    LABEL1 LABEL 2
    LABEL 3 LABEL 4
    LABEL 5

    So I need them to enter the number of boxes and it should count up to the number they need. I figured for that I would need something like number = number + 1. We can use loops, but I am not to sure with those. Here is the code I have so far:

    My teacher said I would need the modulus operator to split the sides of the mailing list? Can anyone help? Also do I need to use a loop for this? Thanks guys
