     c = (length + weight)/ 2;
     prinf("\n perimeter: %d", c);

Sry im new to C just got the lession in school the yes-yesterday so here can i ask what did i wrong in the code above it keep saying error to Scanf so instead of 1 scanf i switch to 2 XD! and priftf too... ~.~ Hope to have someone help :(

What is the exact error message? Does it have anything to do with the 2 different spellings of length? length and lenghth

+5, This should be an answer. As an addition I would mention that the cause of a '{' error can be that some compilers want to see a newline at the end of your source file.

Sounds good to me. :)
Thanks for the tip re: some crappy compilers

Solution 2

Apart from the missing 't' in the 2nd last line, there's no reason for this not to compile. That said, not really sure what it is you're trying to calculate here - I guess you're just getting the hang of the language, and playing around.

Given the use of the words length and perimeter & the /2 in the final calc, I've altered it slightly so that it calculates the perimeter of a rectangle (or square)

I also separated the printf/scanf pairs so that it's easier and more intuitive to use. Enjoy :)

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
     int length, width, perim;
     printf("Plz input length: ");
     scanf("%d", &length);
     printf("\n Plz input width: ");
     scanf("%d", &width);
     perim = (length + width) * 2;
     printf("\n perimeter: %d", perim);
     return 0;
