Question Display a number to the user?? - 11-05-2011, 02:03 PM

I am doing a project for my class and I am stumped here. I know how to get the math functions to properly calculate something, but I cannot figure out how to display the results. I am supposed to get the user to input two numbers, one for distance and one for speed limit, and divide speed limit into distance to get travel time, and then display the travel time on the screen. I have the distance and the speed limit and the calculation seems to be working, but I am not sure how to display the resulting travel time to the screen to check.

I have added the Alice file I am working on here for viewing, PLEASE tell me what I have to do to display the results!!!!

you forgot one little thing, the part where you had have alice say "default string" you need to place "what as string" there so you can place the time variable into that area, which that is found in the world>functions. I updated your version so here it is and check to see if thats what you want

I tried the changes you made and it does return a number, but the only number it will return is 1.0, no matter what distance and speed you enter.
I need it to divide the distance entered by the speed limit and return the time it will take....

I looked at the world again and found that you have two sets of number variables of the exact same thing (speed,time,distance,blahblahblah) well when making your method, you accidentally used the different variables throughtout your code, so just try to use all the right variables and then you should have it corrected
