I'm new to C++.. and killing my brain to find this 1 error and cannot figure it out!!

I don't understand why square cannot equal true??? or false??

this is my 3rd program for my class to turn in!!

Any help would be appreciated!!

```
//This program allow the user to enter dimensions in length and witdth
//of a rectangle in inches. The program then computes the perimeter in feet,
//the area in square feet and the length of the diagonal in feet.
