Hello to all. Hope everyone is having a good night. I am turning to the message board because I don't know what any of these error messages mean. Hopefully someone out there can help. This program is supposed to calculate the area of a triangle and tell if it is a right triangle or not. Any help is always appreciated.

John

Can anyone help me out or point me in the right direction.

Calculate area of a triangle and tell if its a right triangle or not using a switch

statement. I am getting error messages on lines
