C# Question

Break out of a while loop and into another c#

I'm a little stuck with my while loops. Both parts of the code work perfectly on their own, however, I can't seem to make both of the while loops work. Would appreciate any help at all:

using System;
namespace week5task3 {
class Program {
public static void Main(string[] args)

{
double PriceEvery1 = 5;
double PriceEvery2 = 4;
double PriceEvery3 = 2.5;
double Quantity = 10;
int UserCounter = 0;

Console.WriteLine("\n\nWidget Price Chart\n\n");
Console.WriteLine("Quantity of Widgets\t\tPrice");

while (UserCounter <= 100) {
double Price1 = PriceEvery1 * Quantity;
double Price2 = PriceEvery2 * Quantity;
double Price3 = PriceEvery3 * Quantity;

if (Quantity <= 50) {
Console.WriteLine("\t{0}\t\t\t{1:C}", Quantity, Price1);
}

if (Quantity >= 51 && Quantity <= 80) {
Console.WriteLine("\t{0}\t\t\t{1:C}", Quantity, Price2);
}

if (Quantity >= 81 && Quantity <= 100) {
Console.WriteLine("\t{0}\t\t\t{1:C}", Quantity, Price3);
}
Quantity += 10;
}

while (UserCounter >= 0) {
try {
Console.WriteLine("Enter the amount of widgets you would like to purchase or press q to quit");
string temp = Console.ReadLine();
if (temp == "q") break;
if (temp == "Q") break;

int.TryParse(temp, out UserCounter);

double UserPrice;

if (UserCounter <= 50) {
UserPrice = UserCounter * 5;
Console.WriteLine("The price is {0:C}", UserPrice);
}

if (UserCounter >= 51 && UserCounter <= 80) {
UserPrice = UserCounter * 4;
Console.WriteLine("The price is {0:C}", UserPrice);
}

if (UserCounter > 80) {
UserPrice = UserCounter * 2.5;
Console.WriteLine("The price is {0:C}", UserPrice);
}


} catch (Exception) {
Console.WriteLine("You have entered an incorrect value. Please enter a number or press q to quit");
}
}
}
}
}

Answer

Use while (Quantity <= 100) instead of UserCounter <= 100. This will exit the loop after 10 iterations of printing the price.
