#include<iostream>

usingnamespace std;

#define THREETIMES(x) (x)*(x)*(x)

#define CIRAREA(y) (PI)*(y)*(y)

#define REC(z, a) (z)*(a)

#define PI 3.14159

int main(void)

{

double p = 2.5;

double r = 3.5, s, t, u = 1.5, v = 2.5;

cout<<"Power to three of "<<p<<" is "<<THREETIMES(p)<<endl;

cout<<"Circle circumference = 2*PI*r = "<<(2*PI*r)<<endl;

s = CIRAREA(r+p);

cout<<"Circle area = PI*r*r = "<<s<<endl;

t = REC(u, v);

cout<<"Rectangle area = u*v = "<<t<<endl;

return 0;

}

Output example:

Power to three of 2.5 is 15.625

Circle circumference = 2*PI*r = 21.9911

Circle area = PI*r*r = 113.097

Rectangle area = u*v = 3.75
