USING cout (How do you tab???)

So what i am trying to print out is

using white (DELUXE) for $184.00.
Materials = $40.00
Labor = $144.00

I am wondering how do you tab forward on Material and labor

is it something like cout << /t
that is how it is in java, but it wont work on C++

"\t" is the correct escape character for a tab. You were using the wrong direction slash, and it needs to be quoted (ie. cout << "\tMaterials ").
