I'm trying to compile a program that I created that takes a number and finds its average and reverses it. It's a very simple program, but when I try to compile it with g++, it gives me an error.
Why won't it compile? What code is wrong?

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main ()
{
   int num1;
   int num2;
   int num3;
      cout << "Please enter two positive integers with at most four digits each: ";
   cin >> num1 >> num2;
   cout << "Their average is " << num3 = (num1 * num2) / 2.0;
   int rev1;
   rev1 = 0
   {
      num3 * = 10;
      num3 += rev1%10;
      rev1 /= 10;
   }
   cout << "The whole part of the average reversed is " << rev1;
}

Post the errors. My guess is that it doesn't like line 10.

lines 15 and 16: The value of revl is 0 (line 12) so the results of those calculations will also be 0.

Here's the error code that I got when I tried to compile it into g++ :

~/assn/a2$ g++ -o test reverseNum.cc
reverseNum.cc: In function âint main()â:
reverseNum.cc:10: error: no match for âoperator=â in â((std::basic_ostream<char, std::char_traits<char> >*)std::operator<< [with _Traits = std::char_traits<char>](((std::basic_ostream<char, std::char_traits<char> >&)(& std::cout)), ((const char*)"Their average is ")))->std::basic_ostream<_CharT, _Traits>::operator<< [with _CharT = char, _Traits = std::char_traits<char>](num3) = (#âfloat_exprâ not supported by dump_expr#<expression error> / 2.0e+0)â

reverseNum.cc:13: error: expected `;' before â{â token

try using more parentheses, like this: cout << "Their average is " << (num3 = (num1 * num2) / 2.0); or splitting it into two separate lines.

I tried adding the parenthases, and it still wouldn't compile.

I pulled the whole "num3 =" part out of that line and it compiled, so you're right, that's what's wrong with it.. I just can't figure out how to properly have that equation equal num3.

Any idea on how I can get num3 to equal the answer of that equation? How do you split the line into two, like you mentioned?

Excellent. Thank you for that.

Now, I'm just having some problems getting the reversed number to print.

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main ()
{
   int num1;
   int num2;
   int num3;
      cout << "Please enter two positive integers with at most four digits each: ";
      cin >> num1 >> num2;
   num3 = (num1 + num2) /2;
   cout << "Their average is " << (num1 + num2 / 2.0) << endl;
   int rev1;
   {
      num3 += rev1%10; // I'm fairly sure this is where I'm getting it wrong
      rev1 /= 10; // Are these three lines wrong?
      num3 *= 10;
   }
   cout << "The average reversed is " << rev1;
}

This will compile but i still don't get a good result.

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main ()
{
int num1;
int num2;
int num3;
cout << "Please enter two positive integers with at most four digits each: ";
cin >> num1 >> num2;
cout << "Their average is " << (num3 = (num1 * num2) / 2.0);
int rev1;
rev1 = 0;
{
num3 *= 10;
num3 += rev1%10;
rev1 /= 10;
}
cout << "The whole part of the average reversed is " << rev1;
}

Thanks for the reply,

I still can't figure out how to print the number in reverse. Please advise.

You know using sstream is a lot easier :

#include<iostream>
#include<sstream>

using namespace std;

int main()
{ 
	
	
	int NumberToReverse = 123456;
	
	string str = "";

	stringstream sstrm;

	sstrm << NumberToReverse;

	sstrm >> str; //str = "123456";

	int i = str.length() - 1;
	
	cout<<NumberToReverse <<" reversed is : ";
	
	for( i; i  >= 0; --i)
		cout<<str[i];
	
	cout<<endl;


	return 0;

}

Ah, I've figured it out... Thank you for the help, everybody.

How do I give out Rep on this site? I can't figure it out.
