    Stuck on Measuring body fat

    Stuck on Measuring body fat-fatcal-jpgStuck on Measuring body fat-program-png
    Im having trouble with this project for class if anyone could help me out it would be
    Women Thirty Years and Younger hips + (.80 x thigh) – (2 x calf) – wrist = % body fat
    Women over Thirty hips + thigh – (2 x calf) – wrist = % body fat
    Men Thirty Years and Younger waist + (1/2 hips) – (3 x forearm) – wrist = % body fat Men over Thirty waist + (1/2 hips) – (2.7 x forearm) – wrist = % body fat
    Men Lean Body Mass (pounds) 0.85 = correct weight to be 15% fat
    Women Lean Body Mass (pounds) 0.78 = correct weight to be 22% fat
    Those are the formulas you have to use which i did but can I go to debug and insert numbers nothing happens. Could anyone help me out?

    Copy and paste your code between [code][/code] tags.

    A fuzzy picture of barely legible text just doesn't cut it.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    No, plus you are in the wrong forum as your code is C++, not C.

    First I don't see how that compiles because from what I see you have an unclosed if condition at the start, also that condition is hard to read as is, start by using this format on it:
    Code:
    if
    (
       cond
       && cond
       && cond
       && etc...
    )
    Finally I don't see any enclosing code block brackets
    Code:
    { and }
    encasing the code to execute, as it stands it looks like on fail it will skip only the first code statement after the if statement then continue with whatever code follows that statement, fix those 2 points 1st then I'll look again to see where else you're going wrong

    Please move this thread to the C++ forum, as your code IS C++ and this C forum is for the discussion of C code only.

    Thank you!

    Okay 1st you didn't fix the condition brackets so you still need to fix that, also:
    Code:
    else (rdoMale.Checked == true && rdo30Over.Checked == true)
    How does that even compile? Did you mean this?
    Code:
    else if (rdoMale.Checked == true && rdo30Over.Checked == true)

    I thought it was C# given how the file extension is *.cs, I figured that was where that abomination of "double." came from

    It's a form-based C# program. The rdo... variables refer to the state of the radio buttons. The initial 'if' statement has a semicolon at the end (and doesn't seem to do anything).

    Precisely why I keep saying it needs to be fixed
