    Error with calculator for Intro to C Programming course

    Hey guys. I'm making a calculator as an assignment for my Intro to C Programming course. I'm new to this forum so if I posted this in the wrong place forgive me. The problem I am having is that when I get to the 3rd scanf function (Inserting the second number), it just skips right over it and ends the whole function. I believe there is a simple syntax issue but I am not too sure and would appreciate any help. The code is in this pastebin: /*Name: William HorowitzCourse: CSCI 1110-03Subject: Assignment 1Instruc - Pastebin.com

    What you need to do is to compile at a high warning level, and pay attention to warnings. Actually, even at a low warning level your compiler is probably warning you about a typo error in your third scanf call, but you're probably ignoring the warning. There are other warnings that you should pay attention to as well.

If they do, I ask them to find the smallest example that exhibits the problem and send me that. Mostly, they then find the error themselves. "Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
