Hello my dear fellow programmers I am new to the whole programming field and currently started taking C++ classes . While I understand most of the basic principles and whatnot the part where I have to write a program scares me and I believe I am not doing it right .

My assignment is to :

For your output , display the values of the two integers and the total . Only use numeric literals 62 and 99 once in the program you write . Note that there is no user input for this program .

Sample output :

First integer : 62
Second integer : 99
Total: 161

Here is the code I wrote so far but I am not 100% sure this is correct :

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main ()
{
int FirstInteger;
int SecondInteger;
int Total;

FirstInteger=62;
cout <<"FirstInteger";
SecondInteger=99;
cout <<"SecondInteger";
Total=FirstInteger + SecondInteger;
cout <<Total;

return 0;
}

What I want the program to do is A) make sure that FirstInteger is 62 , SecondInteger is 99 and the Total is 161
Now I am not sure if I have to define the variables or no ( I believe I did that with int command in the first 3 lines of my code ) but I am not sure what happens when I type FirstInteger=62; <--- does that mean FirstInteger gets 62 ? or does that assign 62 to the FirstInteger variable ???

Also I am not 100% sure that when I type cout <<"FirstInteger"; will I get the value I assigned to the first integer or will I get a display message saying FirstInteger cause I want to see the value not the text .

If anybody with knowledge of C++ could help me out here I would be very very grateful !!!!

Hello, keldron.

Unfortunately I am not going to help you all that much given that this is homework. If you just cheat, then you aren't actually learning the language.

I will, however, give you a hint. Look around for std::cin.

it's cool man I'm going to my class tomorrow and the teacher will be there to answer any and all questions we have with this assignment you are right though if I cheat or something along these lines I will not learn the language ... at the same time hence I already wrote the code to some degree I dunno if I would consider it cheating at this point .

Why walk around confused why not compile, run and verify your program. There are so many C++ compilers on internet.

- After installing, Start CodeBlocks
- Press Ctrl + Shift + N
- Save the file somewhere on your hard disk where you can easily access it, say for example C:\Code. The filename must end in .cpp
- Compile and build the EXE by pressing Ctrl + F9. Similarly, press F9 to build and run the app.

Look under the Build menu for more options.

Edit : If you type system("PAUSE"); just before return 0;, then you can double click on EXE file in the folder and see it work without going in command line.

hm... it compiles with no errors and it builds with no errors but when I run it I get this

Process terminated with status -1073741510 (0 minutes, 11 seconds) <--- solved this problem by changing the code a bit

now this code does what I wanted it to do

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main ()
{
int FirstInteger;
int SecondInteger;
int Total;

FirstInteger=62;
cout <<FirstInteger;
SecondInteger=99;
cout <<SecondInteger;
Total=FirstInteger + SecondInteger;
cout <<Total;

system("PAUSE");
return 0;
}

The only question I have is why is it all on the same line is it cause I did not use endl command ? <--- solved this with the endl command !!!

Nvm figured it out ~!!!!!

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main ()
{
int FirstInteger;
int SecondInteger;
int Total;

FirstInteger=62;
cout <<FirstInteger <<endl;
SecondInteger=99;
cout <<SecondInteger <<endl;
Total=FirstInteger + SecondInteger;
cout <<Total <<endl;

system("PAUSE");
return 0;
}

is my final code and it does exactly what I wanted it to do !!!! AWESOME THX FOR HELP MAN !!!!!!!! YOU MADE MY DAY !!!!!
