pi = 3.1415926535;

Thanks, it's good to finally be a part of an awesome forum like Daniweb. Wait, something's not right here...

The only output statement in your code, the hint would be that it has the word "out" at the beginning.

Thank you for your help :) my first piece of code, nothing special to brag but gotta start somewhere :)

i would also like to ask if i may, how to have me imput the radius for me to calculate the area?

std::cin >> radius;

You're not calculating the area here.

area = radius * pi;

Here's the formula for calculating the area.

area = radius * radius * pi;
