    Hello, I need a little explanation of why this happens

    I declared my numeric variables in my program then tried to write those same variables in a function where it adds up all the variables then spits out a total. I get kicked back an error that says that the variable was not declared in this scope
    Code:
    g++ datos.cpp  -o program.exe 
    datos.cpp:8:16: error: variable or field ‘totalCalc’ declared void
    datos.cpp:8:16: error: ‘pago1’ was not declared in this scope
    datos.cpp:8:23: error: ‘pago2’ was not declared in this scope
    datos.cpp:8:30: error: ‘pago3’ was not declared in this scope
    datos.cpp:8:37: error: ‘pago4’ was not declared in this scope
    datos.cpp:8:45: error: ‘total’ was not declared in this scope
    datos.cpp: In function ‘int main()’:
    datos.cpp:42:47: error: ‘totalCalc’ was not declared in this scope
    datos.cpp: At global scope:
    datos.cpp:54:16: error: variable or field ‘totalCalc’ declared void
    datos.cpp:54:16: error: ‘pago1’ was not declared in this scope
    datos.cpp:54:23: error: ‘pago2’ was not declared in this scope
    datos.cpp:54:30: error: ‘pago3’ was not declared in this scope
    datos.cpp:54:37: error: ‘pago4’ was not declared in this scope
    datos.cpp:54:45: error: ‘total’ was not declared in this scope
    make: *** [program.exe] Error 1
    Why is this happening?
    P.S I had written the prototype and call and function definition correctly.
