Its overkill. What we need is just a list of constants.
long double pi = 3.141;
long double c= 2e5;
That's it. Pretend you're building the system
for engineering students. I just want
float r =
4 * 365.25 * 24 * 60 * 60 * c;
float a = pi * r * r;
to work. I'm just trying to figure out much area my search
and rescue ship needs to cover to find the lost
