If we try to divide 7/2 we will get 3.5

symetrical
asteriks

asterikses

sterp

beetwen "standard" triangle

Basicly

allways

Secound differance
There are lots of typos and misspellings that I assume will get cleaned up.

My main comment is 7/2. The result of 7/2 is 3 and not 3.5. That is, there are three 2's in 7. You can't have half a 2 since integers have no decimal places. If you really want 3.5 you have to start out with 7.0/2.0.

So, integer arithmetic always produces integer results.

There is also the significant figures issue. 3 represents any value between 3 and less than 4. The value 3.5 represents and value betweem 3.5 and less than 3.6. That is, a result is accurate only to the degree of its coarsest component. That is, you cannot make things more accurate by adding decimal places.

The typos (not all of them):

symetrical --> symmetrical
asteriks --> asterisks

asterikses -->asterisks

sterp --> step

beetwen "standard" triangle --> between

Basicly --> Basically

allways --> always

Secound differance -->Second difference

Lastly, what is a standard triangle?? Right, equilateral, isosceles, asymmetrical??

I know,I have noticed those few minutes after I finished posting post #2,but to late to change them.About this issue: 7/2=3.5,I wasn't trying to say what is resulting integer when compiled using integer arithmetic,I was saying what is true result when u divide those in real life ,what u will get when u divide 7 with 2?About ur last question I meant one isosceles triangle.

Thank u so much for this comment,I really appreciate it.

:D

PS:It's my first article.

Do you have write access to the Editor's forum? I'll move it there if you want?

Sorry Savage the structure doesn't allow for this. If the article has been moved to editors corner then post a reply of the revised article with corrections to it and when you are done the revised article post can be moved back to the articles section for you.

Mary
This is the only option I have.
