Hello, can someone help me with this code? We're supposed to practice the basics of C++.
This program sould be a Q&A between the computer and the user.
The computer then uses the user's input as basis for the next question/comment.

[codebox]/*Computer AI*/
#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>
#include <math.h>


{/*start of program*/

float a;
char nickname;

printf ("What's your name?");
scanf ("%s", &nickname);
printf ("Hello %s.", &nickname);
printf ("\nHow old are you?");
scanf ("%f", &a);
printf ("you're %f yrs old?", &a);



if you run it and entered your FULL NAME it wont output the correct information :thumbsup:
so can someone help me?? thanks in advance.

I hate to do this, but this is such a simple assignment, and you are really, really close. I have to lock this, otherwise someone is going to just tell you the answer, and that will not help you. You are very close though.
