Hovercraft code coach help

I currently solved Hovercraft in all programming language except C. This is my code: #include <stdio.h> int main() { int hover=2000000; int hoverprice=3000000; int cost=1000000; int sale; int scan=scanf("&d", &sale); int outcome=(hover*10)+cost; int x=scan*hoverprice; char prof[6] ="Profit"; char loss[4] ="Loss"; char broke[10] ="Broke Even"; if (x>outcome) { printf(prof); } else if (x==outcome) { printf(broke); } else { printf(loss); } return 0; } After I test it, it returns "LossProfit" shit and I fail all tests

You mistakenly put "&d" instead of "%d" in the scanf() function. When you assign to int x, you assign scan * hoverprice. I believe you wanted for the sale variable to be used instead. int x = sale * hoverprice. The other issue is that none of your strings are null-terminated because the size is off by one. You need the length of the string + 1 for the null-terminating character '\0'. Change them to: char prof[7] = "Profit"; char loss[5] = "Loss"; char broke[11] = "Broke Even"; In your printf() statement you pass the strings directly without a format specifier. Change each printf statement to printf("%s\n", your_string) or even better use: puts(prof); puts(broke); puts(loss); After those changes I believe it should work.
