New, not completely understanding
Well, I've gone through the first lesson and a half of the C++ program that this site offers, and as I'm reading Lesson 2, this comes up:
Now, I understand what this is basically trying to say, but a couple of things are getting me. First off, what exactly does cout mean? Does it tell the program to read the statement, and decided it if it is true? But that wouldn't make sense with something where you're typing in plain text. So I'm kind of confused there. Apply that to int, float, and cin, as well.
Also, I do not know what I should be coding in for a simple math problem. I tried to just modify the hello world into something else, but not knowing what int, float, cin, cout, etc. mean are hindering me. I may have just misread, or skipped it accidentally, but it isn't very clear to me overall. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
