Okay so the object is to print a wheel based on the user's input of the inner and outer radii. I've written a program that checks to see if the distance of the x and y is within the radius. However, i get some weird stretched out tire. If anyone could tell me what i'm doing wrong I would greatly appreciate it.

Here is my code:

#include <stdio.h>

 

int main (void){

int outer, inner, y,x;


printf("What is the outter radius of your tire?\n");
scanf("%d", &outer);

printf("What is the inner radius of your tire?\n");
scanf("%d", &inner);




for(x=-outer; x<=outer; x++){//sets row = -bigradius and increments all the way to +bigradius

for(y=-outer; y<=outer; y++){//sets columns = -bigradius and increments all the way to +bigradius


if((x*x)+(y*y)<=1)//Tests if the radial distance is less than 1. If so print a +.

printf("+");

else if((x*x)+(y*y)<=(inner*inner))//Test if the radial distance is less than or equal to the inner radius. If so print a $.
	
printf("$");

else if((x*x)+(y*y)<=(outer*outer))//Tests if radial distance is less or equal to outer radius. If so prints a *.

printf("*");

else if((x*x)+(y*y)>=(outer*outer))//Checks to see if the distance is greater than the outer radius. If so goes to new line.

printf("\n");



}
}



return 0;

}

And the out out i get from this is:


What is the outter radius of your tire?
14
What is the inner radius of your tire?
10

Since you didn't bother formatting your code, it's hard to follow. My guess is you're outputting your \n at the wrong time.

Sorry about not formatting my code. However, I know that the obvious mistake is somewhere with the new line character. I just can't think of where else I can put it.
