    I have received my new book on ObjC today and am doing an exercise. Here is the code that I am having errors from:
    #import <stdio.h>
    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    int sum;
    // Compute Result
    sum = 25 + 37 - 19
    // Display Results
    printf ("The answer is %i\n", sum);
    return 0;
    It says there is a problem with my printf line, but I don't see it. Do any of you?

    I don't program in obj-c, and don't know if this is a typo, but try adding a semicolon to make "sum = 25 + 37 - 19;"

    I cannot believe I missed that. I am so stupid! Oh well, you learn from mistakes. Now, I am off to Chapter 3- Objects.

    That is most likely the problem. One thing you should learn is that often when the compiler complains about a particular line, it is often the line above it that's the real problem.
