liamnigousnum : spend as much as I possible can and then never pay any of it back? I don't ever plan on financing anything, not even a house so my credit score doesn't matter, right? If location is of relevance, I live in Ga. Couldn't I just give them a bullshit address and a bullshit phone number? Will they ever contact my bank to get the proper info or see how much I have in my checking and savings accounts?

UnesyHekances : first off, if you dont have credit your limit will be very low. if you do get a limit and run it up and never pay it then it will end up being a judgement and will be garnished from your paycheck. Lets say the company does not go the garnishment route. it will effect your credit which not only has an impact on things you finance. your credit also has an impact on your ability to get a cell phone (not pre-paid), the deposit on the apartments you live or if they will even let you live there. the deposit amounts you pay for utilities & cable (of if they will let you get their service).

short answer...dont do that.

Sinonseicedge : Sounds like you are planning fraud. Giving bogus info could get you in jail.

The credit card company won't check your checking or savings account. They will check your credit report. No credit history will likely get you turned down. Card companies now verify your income thru IRS tax returns or W2.

Oh and the card would be mailed to the address you provided. You need to think a little harder to come up with a better method to beat the system.

AcimbCemecach : i'm new to programming so i'm having trouble making this code work.
This is what i have to do:

Write a program that will ask the user for two integer numbers.
Use a “for” loop to raise the first number to the power of the second number.

I been reading a book and doing research online about how to do it and this is what i've come up with:

#include <iostream>
#include <cmath>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
int x;
int y;
int total=x;

cout<< "Enter a Number: ";
cin>> x;
cout<< "Raise number to the power of: ";
cin>> y;
for(int i=0; i<y; i++){

}
cout<<x<<"^"<<y<<"="<<total;

cout<< "\n\n";

system("pause");
return(0);
}

Everything is working fine except that it doesn't do the math, it always equals 0. I know i'm missing the math code or at least i think i do, but i don't know how to do it, i'm lost. Thanks in advance.

RaisseDottemi : Been a while since I've done any of this stuff, but I love solving a problem! It looks like you need to multiply "x" times something (itself or "total") within your for loop. It looks like you're returning "total" without ever doing anything to it. In your for loop I would think you need something like "total = x * total" and you might have to declare "int total=1" in the beginning. My syntax probably isn't right, but you get the idea. You're declaring early on that "total=x", but you declare it before the user has assigned a value to "x", in which case it has no value. I think.

kimmurphyo : #include <math.h> /* pow */

pow (7.0, 3.0) );

or int.

JanBarend : ~ Initialize x, y, and total (preferrably to zero, zero and 1 respectively). You're initializing total to x, but at that point x is uninitialized too.. containing garbage value which is then passed to total! Always initialize variables.

~ You aren't doing anything inside the loop at all. Add total = total * x;

~ Replace system("pause"); with cin.get() or something similar. Using unnecessary calls to system is a bad practice.

#include <iostream>
//#include <cmath> you aren't using these
using namespace std;

int main()
{
int x = 0;
int y = 0;
int total = 1;

cout<< "Enter a Number: ";
cin>> x;
cout<< "Raise number to the power of: ";
cin>> y;
for(int i=0; i<y; i++){
total = total * x;
}
cout<<x<<"^"<<y<<"="<<total;

cout<< "\n\n";

return(0);
}

CingDeage : There is no code in your for loop. Oh, and since you're using pow(), x and y must be 'double' types.

#include <iostream>
#include <cmath>
using namespace std;

int main(int argc, const char* argv[]) {
double x, y;
int total;

cout << "Enter a Number: ";
cin >> x;

cout << "Raise number to the power of: ";
cin >> y;

for (double i = 0; i < y; i ) {
total = pow(x, i);
cout << x << " ^ " << i << " = " << total << endl;
}
return 0;
}

Helenc : I received the following email regarding my item on Craigslist. To me, it screams scam, but I rather not let the notion alone push 800 dollars out of my hands, so I wanted a second opinion. First off this email is leagues more legible than his first, and to simply just pay $800 for software without question is unheard of in my book.

" Thanks for the prompt response to my mail. I will be buying from
you so please kindly withdraw the advert from C.LIST. Please be
informed that i will be paying with a Money Order or Cashier Check
from my Bank it will be delivered to you via United Parcel Service
(UPS) or FedEx , Also, last price you're willing to sell for . So I'll
need you to provide me with the following information to facilitate
the mailing of the check...

Name to be on the payment...........
Home address...........
City..............
State...........
Zip Code..............
Cell phone #................

I will make arrangements for the pick up as soon as you have your
money I am completely satisfied with the advert and the payment will
be delivered within 24hours.** I use a hearing impaired phone # and
will receive your calls via email **

N.B UPS/FedEx does not deliver to a P.O box addresses.Thanks"

Isabella_Washington : Yes it is a known scam. Search the first few bits into google. http://craigslistscammer.blogspot.com/2009/03/chris-bond-uses-others-email-addresses.html In general, if something sounds too good to be true, or seems unusual you should probably leave it alone.
