# Thread: need help to get started

1. ## need help to get started

can some one get me started on this c++ assignment.

This lab is mainly an output-formatting exercise. It does require that you know how to develop the product of two integers, without using a calculator.

Problem statement
Write a program that multiplies two 4-digit positive integers and prints their product in the format below. Your program should ask the user to type the two numbers, then read them in. As an example, the product of 4560 and 4334 should produce the following output.
Notice that the alignment should be the same as you’d get if you multiplied the numbers using a pencil and paper.

4560
x 4334
---------
18240
13680
13680
18240
---------
19753920

You have to pull out the digits of the top number. 1000th digit is ‘4’. So you’d then multiply ‘4’ time 4334. There are different ways of solving this.

2. How many tomes must this be explained? No one here is going to do your hw. Expect the same amount of effort from the forum as you yourself give.

its says needs help to get started, not need help to do. there lot of good people out there to help if you cant they will.

4. You can easily start by writing a skeleton program, and then tell us what you think you need to do to solve this problem.

I can read, but actions speak more than words, and you're saying very little. It's not that I can't, it's that I refuse help those who make no attempt to help themselves.
