So I'm mistaken; I know crap about programming. I thought you meant the basic equation.

Edited for painfully obviously mistake and clearly not helpful

This is what my program looks like

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main () {

int principle, years, interest;

cout<< "Please enter the starting principle, then the number of years it will\
be in the bank, and then the interest rate in percentage."<< endl;
cin>> principle >> years >> interest;

while (years >= 1 ){
principle = principle + (principle * interest / 100);
}
cout<< "You will have $" <<principle<< " in the bank."<< endl;
}




But it does nothing

Does nothing? Does it compile and do nothing? Does it give errors during compile or when executed? Does it give the wrong value?

I haven't programmed in 10 years but I remember including <stdio.h>, I have no idea if it's still needed.

There appears to be something wrong with your loop and use of 'years'.

Hahaha I figured out what I did wrong, it should have been (i <= years) not the other way around.

Yea and then you must increment 'i'

i++;

Not true. You programmed me to lead raids and to be a ninja cyborg assassin. And you guys though Guapa left the guild lol.

It's kind of like watching "The Guild" and realizing you're one of the characters.

I have no clue what is going on in this thread. I assume you are making fun of me somehow.

Fuck off.
