Hello, I have newbie question.

I'm stuck on this current assignment.

Write a program that prompts the user for two integer values,

passes the values to a function where they are multiplied

together and the square root of the product is returned and

displayed for the user. The function should return a double.

Hint: If you multiply an integer by 1.0 the result will be a

double. For example:

Enter an integer: 7

Enter another integer: 6

The square root of 7 times 6 = 6.48074

--

ok, so what I did was created a program that would get the

sqaure root of a number, and then created another one that multipled

2 numbers. Here is the source for the square root:

#include <iostream>

#include <cmath>

using namespace std;

int main()

{

double intOne; // use double for real numbers

cout << "Enter an integer:\n";

cin >> intOne;

double side; // create another variable

side = sqrt( intOne ); // call function, assign return value

cout << "The square root is " << side;

cout << " \n";

return 0;

}

here is the source for multiplying the two integers:

#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int main()

{

int number1,number2 , product;

cout << "Enter a number: ";

cin >> number1;

cout << "Enter another number: ";

cin >> number2;

product = number1 * number2;

cout << "The product of " << number1 <<" and "<< number2 << " is " << product <<"\n";

return 0;

}

I tried to combine the two together using this code:

#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int main()

{

int number1,number2 , product;

cout << "Enter a number: ";

cin >> number1;

cout << "Enter another number: ";

cin >> number2;

product = number1 * number2;

cout << "The product of " << number1 <<" and "<< number2 << " is " << product <<"\n";

root = sqrt( product );

cout << "The square root is " << root <<"\n";

return 0;

}

here is the error I'm getting:

combine.cc: In function `int main()':

combine.cc:16: error: `root' undeclared (first use this function)

combine.cc:16: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once for

each function it appears in.)

combine.cc:16: error: call of overloaded `sqrt(int&)' is ambiguous

/usr/include/bits/mathcalls.h:157 : error: candidates are: double sqrt(double)

/usr/include/g++/cmath:550: error: long double std::sqrt(long

double)

/usr/include/g++/cmath:546: error: float std::sqrt(float )

I'm new to this language and any help would be greatly

appreciated. It would be great if someone could point

me in the right direction.

Thanks a bunch,
