Suppose that electricity costs 4.75 cents per kilowatt hour, and that a surcharge of 10% is added to the bill. A city utility tax is 3% is also levied;however no tax is charged on the surcharge, and no surcharge is added for the tax. A penalty for a late payment is 4% of the total bill. Write the java program that computes an electric bill (by Maria sh)

import java.util.Date;
import java.util.Scanner;

public class ElectricityBill 
* 4.75 cents per KiloWatt per hour 
* Surcharge 10%
* City utility tex 3%
* 4% of total bill charged on late payment 
public static void main(String[] args) 
int totalUnits;
double billCharged;
Scanner in = new Scanner(;
Scanner ins = new Scanner(;
Date date = new Date();
System.out.print("Enter total units consumed (in KiloWatt) = ");
totalUnits = in.nextInt();
billCharged = totalUnits*4.75;
System.out.println("Day of month = "+date.getDate());
if (date.getDate()> 10)
billCharged += billCharged * (0.10+0.04);
billCharged += billCharged *(0.03);
System.out.println("Your total bill = "+billCharged);


Note that 10th of each month is assumed to be the due date of bill payment. If any customer pays bill after due date, 10% surcharge and 4% of total bill on late payment will be charged.
