# Talk:C++/Simple Math

< Talk:C++

Just an FYI the last example has a typo:

"pow(myValue,myPowner); // myValue is the base and myPower is the exponent"

^ the n should be removed or ^ the n should be added

This is a great article, and I am enjoying reading it.

Thanks,

Hi!

Could it be that the the variable `my_result`

in the third line of the code

float myValue=25, myResult;
myResult = sqrt(myValue); // Squareroot the variable myValue, and store it into variable myResult
myResult = pow(my_result,2.00); // Square the variable myResult, and then store it back into myResult

should be renamed in `myResult`

?

AND I think the `float`

2.00 should be replaced by an `int`

2. At least my Dev-C++ (version 4.9.9.2) can't handle a `float`

as the second parameter of the `pwr()`

function.

BTW, nice tutorial so far.
