    Mate i am not surprised given the open close braces style you have adopted, its just a case of finding it yourself i would say, there is no magic here, the error is pretty verbose in this case, one could be causing the other to generate but i bet one or the other of them is literally true

    Hold on maybe its a ton of other things too...like there are consitently no spaces in else..if

    also its

    int main()

    First there is no elseif keyword it should be else if (notice the space). Second you have some extra semicolons following your else if() clauses (before the opening braces).

    Sorry, I just started in programming and I don't know the rule about having a ; after an else if statement. After I put ; on every else if, new errors came which denotes "Misplaced Else"

    The reason you don't know such a rule is because that is the opposite of the rule: you are forbidden to have semicolons after else if.

    Actually, the person above told you not to do that:

    For future reference, for C questions post in the C board. This is the C++ board. The name at the top of the forum should give it away.
