# Answer to Question #4383 in Other Programming & Computer Science for Jackie

Question #4383

Use pseudocode to design a suitable program. In your program, make use of subprograms with parameters and arguments.

Develop a menu-driven program that inputs a number X, and at the user's option, finds and displays the area (A) of one of the following:

* A square with side X, A = x^2

* A circle with radius X, A = 3.14 * X^2

* An equilateral triangle with side X, A = Sqrt (3) / 4 * X^2

Develop a menu-driven program that inputs a number X, and at the user's option, finds and displays the area (A) of one of the following:

* A square with side X, A = x^2

* A circle with radius X, A = 3.14 * X^2

* An equilateral triangle with side X, A = Sqrt (3) / 4 * X^2
