im writing a math program for my sister that will cub, square,multiply and if perl can, square root a number. i wrote the code and it runs but won't display an answer. i wrote print answer but that doesn't work.
my code is this
Code: [ Select ]
print "you can cube or square or multiply numbers

with this program first put in a number to work with: ";

$numb = <stdin>;

print "now what do you want to do cube , square or multiply?: ";
$Q = <stdin>;

if ($Q eq cube) { $numb1 = $numb * $numb * $numb };
print "$numb1 is the answer ";

if ($Q eq square) { $numb2 = $numb * numb };
print $numb2;

if ($Q eq multiply) { print "put in another number: ";

$numb3 = <stdin>;

$numb4 = $numb * $numb3;
print "$numb4 is the answer" };
  1. print "you can cube or square or multiply numbers
  2. with this program first put in a number to work with: ";
  3. $numb = <stdin>;
  4. print "now what do you want to do cube , square or multiply?: ";
  5. $Q = <stdin>;
  6. if ($Q eq cube) { $numb1 = $numb * $numb * $numb };
  7. print "$numb1 is the answer ";
  8. if ($Q eq square) { $numb2 = $numb * numb };
  9. print $numb2;
  10. if ($Q eq multiply) { print "put in another number: ";
  11. $numb3 = <stdin>;
  12. $numb4 = $numb * $numb3;
  13. print "$numb4 is the answer" };
also if you can help me with the square root thing i'll appreciate it. thanks
