Alright, so I wrote a prgm to calculate a hexagon based pyramid; Now I want to clean it up; Title, displaying multiple answers, if possible have low case letters..

Basically the final prgm would be called Pyramid and would have a list with regular bases; triangle, rectangle, penta, hexa, octo.

after selecting the base It would prompt you for variables, then give you multiple answers.

For example;
Hexagon based pyramid;

Variables:
one side of the hexagon (A)
The pyramid's apothem (B)

Hexagon apothem
Pyramid apothem
Pyramid height
Hexagon area
Lateral area
Volume

This is how I thought it would be written... But I get a syntax error.
Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Disp's syntax this: Disp "Text", Var etc and interchangable.
So I think your syntax error is coming from your Disp commands, toss in a few commas and it should be better. Same with the Input commands.
You're almost right, but there should be no spaces at all, so, for example, your code would be:

Code:
```Input "Side A:",A Input "Arrete B:",B ... Disp "Hexagone apothem:",C Disp "Pyramid apothem:",D ...```

As a side note, screenshots of code are not great. You should copy the code and paste it.
Still incorrect :S

Currently the code looks like this;

Code:
```Input "Side A:", A Input "Arrete B:", B sqrt((A^^2)-((0.5*A)^^2))->C sqrt((B^^2)-((0.5*A)^^2))->D sqrt(D^^2-C^^2)->E (3A^^2sqrt(3))/2->F Disp "Hexagone apothem:", C Disp "Pyramid apothem:", D Disp "Pyramid height:", E Disp "Hexagon area:", F Disp "Lateral area:", (A*D/2)*6 Disp "Pyramid volume:", (1/3*F*E)```
You still have spaces after your commas.
Yes my bad, removed them, the prgm runs now, but shuts down with a syntax error after going all matrix on me.

*EDIT: bayum, nice. Thanks.

Now only problem is I can't see all the results :S
Writing being big and all, any way to mod that?

prgm wrks like this:

Code:
```Input "Side A:",A Input "Arrete B:",B sqrt((A^^2)-((0.5*A)^^2))->C sqrt((B^^2)-((0.5*A)^^2))->D sqrt(D^^2-C^^2)->E (3A^^2sqrt(3))/2->F Disp "Hexagone apothem:",C Disp "Pyramid apothem:",D Disp "Pyramid height:",E Disp "Hexagon area:",F Disp "Lateral area:",(A*D/2)*6 Disp "Pyramid volume:",(1/3*F*E)```
You could change your display to the graph screen which will allow for smaller text and more than a 8x16 display.

Code:
``` Text(1,1,"Hexagon apothem:",C ```

And if you did want big text there is a way to change that on the graph screen, meaning you can have home display font or graph font.

Code:
``` Text(-1,1,1,"Hexagon apothem:",C ```

And I made the text at 1,1 but you can change that to be any y,x coordinates with 0 being the top and 57 being the bottomost readable.
As for the x it generally can be between 0 and 94.
And now to make it perfect, any way to remove the graph lines and only have text?
Works beautifully guys! Thanks a ton!

Code:
```Input "Side A:",A Input "Apothem B:",B sqrt((A^^2)-((0.5*A)^^2))->C sqrt((B^^2)-((0.5*A)^^2))->D sqrt(D^^2-C^^2)->E (3A^^2sqrt(3))/2->F (A*D/2)*6->G (G+F)->H (1/3*F*E)->I AxesOff Text(5,0,"Aire base:",F Text(15,0,"Hauteur:",E Text(25,0,"Apothem:",D Text(35,0,"Aire laterale:",G Text(45,0,"Aire totale:",H Text(55,0,"Pyramid volume:",I```
Great! Now, let's talk about optimization First off, you can leave off ending parens if you're using ->. Additionally, you don't need the * for multiplication. So, for example, here's a smaller version of you program that acts the same way:

Code:
```Input "Side A:",A Input "Apothem B:",B sqrt(A^^2-(.5A)^^2->C sqrt(B^^2-(.5A)^^2->D sqrt(D^^2-C^^2->E (3A^^2sqrt(3))/2->F 3AD->G G+F->H FE/3->I AxesOff Text(5,0,"Aire base:",F Text(15,0,"Hauteur:",E Text(25,0,"Apothem:",D Text(35,0,"Aire laterale:",G Text(45,0,"Aire totale:",H Text(55,0,"Pyramid volume:",I```

Should be the same functionally.
You could even add a few optimizations to your code. For example, your calculations can be shortened.

Code:
`sqrt((A^^2)-((0.5*A)^^2))->C`

could be

Code:
`sqrt(A^^2-.25A^^2->C`
Now everything worked.. why am I getting this cluster all of a sudden?? #Solved, nvm! Register to Join the Conversation
