Hello! My friend recommended that I try this site if I needed advice on my programs, so I thought 'hey, why not?'. I'm working on a program that is to draw shapes and store them in arrays. I kinda can't figure out how to make my print functions work correctly. I also don't know what I'm doing wrong when trying to add in the information. Any advice on what to do next would be absolutely wonderful!

```

* This program takes input and puts it into an the shape array specified.
* The two shapes available are Triangle and Square. The area is calculated and
* the user recieves a print out of the designated tasks the program does with

Oh, the parts that are giving me trouble are the parts under the Square class, under SetSquare(and how to get that information there :/). As well as the print function there.

Thank you for any advice you can give!!! =)
