The program is not difficult, but when I use pointers it won't run.The program is as follows:
/* This program asks for the circumference and calculates the circle's radius and its area*/
/* This program asks for the circumference and calculates the circle's radius
and its area*/
#include<iostream.h>
#include<math.h>
#define PI 3.14159
void main(void)
{
double circum,area,radio;
void radius(double,double *);
void areas(double,double *);
cout<<"Entre la circumferencia del circulo, para computar su area\n";
cin>>circum;
radio=radius(circum,&radio);
area=areas(radio,&area);
cout<<"El area de el circulo es "<<area;
}
void radius(double cicum,double *radio)
{
 *radio=circum/(2.000000*PI);
 }
 void areas(double radio,double*area)
 {
 double area;
 *area=PI*pow(radio,2.000000);
 }

I had sent a similar message, but I forgot to include some changes I had done on the program. I want to use pointers on this one in order to understand them, although I know their not essntial.

First of all your functions are declared as returning void - it will be an error truing to capture the return value. All you need is to change these two lines:
radio=radius(circum,&radio);
area=areas(radio,&area);
Change them to:
radius(circum,&radio);
area=areas(radio,&area);

Thanks

Here is you answer.

#include<iostream.h>
#include<math.h>
#define PI 3.14159

// Declare these variables as globals. These is a bad programming style.
double circum,area,radio;

void main(void)
{
      void radius(double,double *);
      void areas(double,double *);
      
      cout<<"Entre la circumferencia del circulo, para computar su area\n";
      cin>>circum;
      radius(circum,&radio);
      areas(radio,&area);
      cout<<"El area de el circulo es "<<area;
}

void radius(double cicum,double *radio)
{
      *(radio) = ::circum / (2.000000*PI);
}

void areas(double radio,double*area)
{
      *(area) = PI * pow(::radio,2.000000);
}

your pointers need the matching &address.

eg.

void radius(double, double *)

void main()
{
  double circ;
  double radio;
 
   Radius(double, &double) ...there I think that's it.

but you could do this
   radius(double, double)

and the proto will be void radius(double, double &);

}
