What compiler you are using because running the program should show you the output

if u cannot see the output jus add a line in the end of the program
If it returns any error include the conio.h header at the beginning

write the getch(); at the end of the program.
getch(); is used for get one character from the user.
by doing that after execution of the program it will hold the screen and when you press any key then it will go to source code.

It depends why you can't see the output already. Does the window appear briefly then disappear before you get a chance to look at it? If so prompting for input as the last thing is one solution; running the EXE from a command prompt opened at the right place is another.

Just a silly question. Are you aware of printf / cout functions to display output.
