    what loop use here?

    converts Fahrenheit to Celsius temperature in increment of 5 degrees. The

    initial value of Fahrenheit temperature and total conversion are to be made are requested

    as user input.


    and code is

    Code:
    #include "iostream"
    using namespace std;
    void main()
    {
    	int inp;
    	cout<<"Enter how many time you want to convert temperature: ";
    	cin>>inp;
    	for(int i=1;i<=inp;i++)
    	{
    		float temp;
    		cout<<"enter fahrenheit value: ";
    		cin>>temp;
    		float cels=(5.0/9.0)*(temp-32.0);
    		cout<<temp<<" Fahrenheit converted to "<<cels<<" Celcius"<<endl;
    	}
    }
    i know this is not what it require but i am not understanding what that 5 degree increment means please guide me.

    Yes, he also seems to need a map to figure out he is on the wrong forum.
    1. Get rid of gets(). Never ever ever use it again. Replace it with fgets() and use that instead.
    2. Get rid of void main and replace it with int main(void) and return 0 at the end of the function.
    3. Get rid of conio.h and other antiquated DOS crap headers.
    4. Don't cast the return value of malloc, even if you always always always make sure that stdlib.h is included.

    you can use for loop or while loop or do/while loop. Any will be fine. Read in your book how to use those and then write the code for it. Shouldn't be difficult.
