    Post Half of program not showing up in console

    Ok, im programming a program to help my little sister with her maths and have of the program doesnt show up in the console when I go to compile.

    Line 43 and below are the ones that do not show up on screen.

    If someone could help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated


    Code:
       //Fraction Divider
    
    #include <iostream>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    
    using std::cout;
    using std::cin;
    
    int main()
    {
        int firstNum, firstDen, secondNum, secondDen, multiplyOne, multiplyTwo;
        
        cout << "\t\tWelcome to Fraction Divider\n\n";
        
        cout << "Please only insert IMPROPER FRACTIONS\n\n";
        
        cout << "Insert NUMERATOR of first fraction:";
        cin >> firstNum;
        
        cout << "Insert DENOMINATOR of first fraction:";
        cin >> firstDen;
        
        cout << "\nInsert NUMERATOR of second fraction";
        cin >> secondNum;
        
        cout << "Insert DENOMINATOR of second fraction";
        cin >> secondDen;
        
        cout << firstNum;
        cout << "\n--\n";
        cout << firstDen;
        cout << "\n";
        
        cout << "\tDivided by\n\n"
        cout << secondNum;
        cout << "\n--\n";
        cout << secondDen;
        cout << "\n";
        
        cout << "\n\nIf that is correct, see below. If not, restart the program\n\n";
           
        // THE PROBLEM MENTIONED IN FORUMS BEGIN HERE!
        // ALl TEXT FOLLOWING THESE COMMENTS FAIL TO SHOW UP!
        
        cout << "To divide fractions, we invert the second fraction and mulitply the new sum\n\n"
        
        cout << "Now we have\n\n"
        
        cout << firstNum;
        cout << "\n--\n";
        cout << firstDen;
        cout << "\n";
        
        cout << "\nMultiplied by\n\n"
        
        cout << secondDen;
        cout << "\n--\n";
        cout << secondNum;
        cout << "\n";  
            
        multiplyOne = (firstNum * secondDen);
        multiplyTwo = (firstDen * secondNum);
        
        cout << firstNum << "\tMultiplied by\t" << secondDen << "\t = \t" << multiplyOne << "\n" << endl;
        cout << firstDen << "\tMultiplied by\t" << secondNum << "\t = \t" << multiplyTwo << "\n\n" << endl;
        
        cout << "Answer:\n\n";
        
        cout << multiplyOne;
        cout << "\n--\n";
        cout << multiplyTwo;
        cout << "\n"
        
        
        system("pause");
        
        return 0;
    }

    Re: Half of program not showing up in console

    The only thing I see is a strange "\t" instead of "\n" in
    Code:
    cout << "\tDivided by\n\n"

    Resolved Re: Half of program not showing up in console

    I found the problem:

    An update I installed caused one of the files needed to compile to stop working. The problem was simply that the half that wouldn't show didn't compile.

    Thanks anyway for your help

    You're missing semi-colons (I have listed where they are). It shouldn't even compile..

    Once I fixed the compile errors, it ran to the end for me.

    Re: Half of program not showing up in console

    That's a pretty odd problem.. what was the update and the affected file (in case someone else happens to have the same problem)?

    Re: Half of program not showing up in console

    Idk what the affected file was, but the update was something along the lines of:
    -Windows Internet Explorer 8(tm) Vista Compatability Update.

    I use Mozilla Firefox so it didn't really matter anyway
