Beginner Function Calling Question
Below is a sample code. My professor starts code and we have to finish the code. Below is not the assignment but a sample I have written up to help my question. I have two .cpp files one named main the other named func1. Within func1 I have a function called matheq. I was just wondering if there was some way to have my main.cpp print out the matheq numbers in the parentheses? Or do I have to redefine them in my second func2.cpp file?

I added a cout statement trying to show what I am trying to do, I know it is wrong but I just wanted to show some basic code to back up my statement.

Thanks again for your help!


void matheq(double a,double b,double c);
using namespace std;
int main()


cout << "matheq(a) << endl;

Re: Beginner Function Calling Question
Before calling matheq(), you could have an output statement like this:

cout << "First arg: 1.0" << " Second arg: 3.3" << " Third arg: 2.1" << endl.
matheq(1.0, 3.3, 2.1);
// and so on

Is that what you're asking?

Yeah that is exactly what I was looking for. However, I think I have found my error. I believe I need to do my cout statements inside of my matheq function. I did that and it worked.

Thank you though Mark for responding!!
