thanks all for reading up until this point.

im a total noob and stuck on this problem

(Program) a. Write a C++ program to convert meters to feet. The program should request the

starting meter value, the number of conversions to be made, and the increment between metric

values. The display should have appropriate headings and list the meters and corresponding

feet value. If the number of iterations is greater than 10, have your program substitute a

default increment of 10. Use the relationship that 1 meter = 3.281 feet.

b. Run the program written in Exercise 6a on a computer. Verify that your program begins at

the correct starting meter value and contains the exact number of conversions specified in

your input data.

here is what have so far

#include<iostream>

#include <iomanip>

using namespace std;

// a programs to convert meter to feet

int main()

{

const int MAXMETER = 10;

const int STARTVAL = 1;

const int STEPSIZE = 1;

int meter;

double feet;

cout << "Meter Feet\n"

"------- -----\n";

meter = STARTVAL;

// set output for formats for floating-point numbers only

cout << setiosflags (ios::showpoint) << setiosflags(ios::fixed)

<< setprecision(2);

while (meter <= MAXMETER)

{

feet = (3.281) * meter;

cout << setw(4) << meter

<< setw(13) << feet << endl;

meter = meter + STEPSIZE;

}

system ("PAUSE");

return 0;

}

i dont know how to have a setup where you input the values, and then will be provided the output. i literally scoured my book for info on it

thanks alot in advance!!!

To get value just use cin >> meter;

thanks for the reply!!

Why do I keep having a problem with line 11

'cout << "meter feet\n"'

thanks for the reply!!

Why do I keep having a problem with line 11

'cout << "meter feet\n"'

where would i place 'cin >> meter;' |

At the point in the code where you want the user to enter the value.
