hey im doing a intro programming class and Im running into some problems. would really appreciate some help to see where I went wrong. Been trying to figure it out for hours now. Someone please help me out
These are my errors c: In function main: c:33:9: error: expected identifier or ( before = token This is the code: #include <stdio.h> #include <math.h> int main (void) { float distance; int x1,x2; int y1,y2; printf("The three types of angles in triangles are: Right angles,Obtuse Angles, and Acute angles") ; printf("Three kinds of triangles are: Equilateral Triangles,Isosceles Triangles and Scalene Triangles") ; printf(" The Pythagorean Theorem is : a2+b2=c2") ; printf("The Distance Formula is: sqrt(pow(x2x1,2) + pow(y2y1,2)") ; printf("Please enter First X value") ; scanf("%d",&x1) ; printf("Please enter Second X Value") ; scanf("%d",&x2) ; printf("please enter First Y Value") ; scanf("%d",&y1) ; printf("Please enter Second Y Value") ; scanf("%d",&y2) ; float=sqrt(pow(x2x1,2) + pow(y2y1,2); printf("Distance is %f",distance); return 0; }

Error in code
float is a data type you need to use a variable name of type float, also make sure your parens are equal to eachother for example this
distance=sqrt(pow(x2x1,2) + pow(y2y1,2)); P.S. throw some '\n' in your printf statements so it is not as cluttered.

You can't assign a value to a data type. Also, see jtbell's post  you have a problem with your parentheses on that line.
