I was messing around trying to make a code and i did this simple multipcation code:

#include <iostream.h>

int multiply()
{

int number1;
int number2;
int multiplydone;
cout<<"Type the first number:\n";
cin>>number1;
cout<<"Type the second number:\n";
cin>>number2;
multiplydone = number1 * number2;
return multiplydone;
}
int main()
{
system("PAUSE")
return 0;
}

can somsone tell me whats wrong if any thing is wrong?

If you don't know if anything is wrong then why are you asking a question about it? You need to tell us what the problem is.

#include <iostream.h>

int multiply(void);
int multiply(void)
{

int number1;
int number2;
int multiplydone;
cout<<"Type the first number:\n";
cin>>number1;
cout<<"Type the second number:\n";
cin>>number2;
multiplydone = number1 * number2;
return multiplydone;
}
int main()
{
system("PAUSE")
return 0;
}

i donno c++ but you have to add the bold line in C

That shouldn't be necessary for C++.

By the way, Unknown, why don't you just compile the code and see if there are any problems? Although I believe you're missing a semi-colon in the main().

Thx dragon it was the semi colon :) I hate those.

Ya :) I made sure that i put it the first time I compiled it. But when I took out the system() and put it back in i forgot to put the ;

Make sure you read our posting guidelines (http://www.codingforums.com/postguide.htm) before you start new thread so you can properly name it. "Code Problem" doesn't say much considering the his a development help forum.

There isnt a forum that says C++. So I resolved to this since its the closest thing.

Well, that wasn't the thing he objected to. This is the correct forum to ask such questions in. The thing he objected to was the title you gave your post.
