I would gladly help you with this.
- But I can't. Not because I lack C++ knowledge. No. The problem resides in your post formatting!

USE CODE TAGS.

I guess those numbers you write in front of the errors are line numbers. We can't see the line numbers of your code if there is no code tags.

If you want help, then make it easy for those who is going to help you :)

what are code tags

sorry, I am new at this!

Mark your pasted code and press the (CODE) button.

Then your code will be surrounded with the code tags, and when you post it will be much easier for us to read:

int main()
{
    std::cout << "I am in code tags! :) And on line 3, obviously!!" << std::endl;
}

o.k. thanks!
I have been playing around with the code and when I compile & run it no longer displays errors but the box ( do not know what it is called) does not stay open.

what does that mean? sorry, I am not more programming savvy!

Ugh...
