C++ Question

ok...
code:
...
cout<<"Ranged Level ";
cin>>rangedlevel;
rangedlimit = (attacklevel + strengthlevel) / 1.475;
rangedpurity = rangedlevel - rangedlimit; //if negative = 0
rangedamount = 0>rangedpurity ? 0 : rangedpurity;
combatlevel = ((attacklevel + defenselevel + strengthlevel + hitpointslevel) / 4) + ((magiclevel + prayerlevel + rangedamount) / 8);
...


Im trying to make prayerlevel = 0 if it is below 0, negative, if its above 0 it will make itself to be that number.
That above is my lame attempt at doing something like it, however it doesnt work, of course :p
Wtf am I doing wrong? lol. I hate being a noob at things. :o

Thanks. :)

    I don't see where you define prayerlevel... I mean, your code says that rangedamount shouldn't be negative... where did you instantiate prayerlevel (can we see that code?)

    }
    
    It gets cut off if I make it one code box...

    Also, for the life of me, I cannot figure out why primary/secondary are working right. o_O

    okay i haven't program in c++ for a long time but i program c like everyday, so here i go with my first solution:

    make int prayerlevel if you have declare it an unsigned int prayerlevel which makes go to 0 to 65535.

    here is my second solution but it has more code:

    if (prayerlevel < 0 )
    {prayerlevel = 0;}

    I hope that helps (and works)!

    Ive been going for ranged level, so I guess I will try this...
    cout<<"Ranged Level: ";
    cin>>rangedlevel;
    rangedlimit = (attacklevel + strengthlevel) / 1.475;
    rangedpurity = rangedlevel - rangedlimit;
    if (rangedpurity < 0)
    {
    rangedamount = 0;
    }
    else if (rangedpurity > 0)
    {
    rangedamount = rangedpurity;
    }
    

    Thanks Tropical :D

    What tropical posted will work, but I don't see where in your code you're attempting to check the value of prayerlevel.

    if you want it condensed, then use the ternary operator like you did w/ one of the ranged variables.

    prayerlevel = ((prayerlevel > 0) ? prayerlevel : 0);
