Beginner Function Calling Question

  1. 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!

    Code (Text):

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


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

    Before calling matheq(), you could have an output statement like this:
    Code (Text):

    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?
  4. 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!!
