# Calculation in pascal

Posts: 5Member
Hey guys i have written a program calculating a bet,the program is working just fine but there is calculation regarding powers that gave me a little problem in pascal so i took the easy way out.the calculation is

Amount Won = ((bet ^2) / (bet^2 - 100 * bet)) * 25000

[b]Bet[/b] is a variable

[b]
I just multiplied the variable each time in pascal not using the power function [/b]

also how would one right this is a pseudo-code ?

any input would be appreciated !!

: Amount Won = ((bet ^2) / (bet^2 - 100 * bet)) * 25000
:

Pascal does have a square function ([color=Purple]sqr[/color]) or you can do like you have been
doing and just multiply the bet to itself. And in Pascal with some optimization
and minimizing the number of calculations, you could:
[code]
var
bet : integer; { the bet }
betsq : integer; { the bet squared }

.
.
.

betsq := sqr( bet );
Amount_Won := ( betsq / ( betsq - 100 * bet ) ) * 25000;[/code]
