// Create yourself again as ‘me’ with a staff discount of 20%
var me = new StaffMember(“Yusuf”, 20);

var cashRegister = {
total:0,
lastTransactionAmount: 0,
add: function(itemCost){
this.total += (itemCost || 0);
this.lastTransactionAmount = itemCost;
},
scan: function(item,quantity){
switch (item){
case “eggs”: this.add(0.98 * quantity); break;

voidLastTransaction : function(){
this.total -= this.lastTransactionAmount;
this.lastTransactionAmount = 0;
},
// Create a new method applyStaffDiscount here
applyStaffDiscount: function(employee) {
this.total -= this.total x (employee.discountPercent / 100);
}

};

cashRegister.scan(‘eggs’,1);
cashRegister.scan(‘milk’,1);
cashRegister.scan(‘magazine’,3);
// Apply your staff discount by passing the ‘me’ object
// to applyStaffDiscount
cashRegister.applyStaffDiscount(me);

// Show the total bill
console.log('Your bill is '+cashRegister.total.toFixed(2));

Ok, got my mistake in my final try.

I had used ‘x’ instead of ‘*’ multiplication symbol in the applyStaffDiscount function.

Done.
