C Input Output: Calculate the sum of three numbers getting input in one line

Sample Solution:

C Code:

#include <stdio.h>
int num1,num2,num3;         /* declaration of three variables */  
int sum;
char line_text[50];      /* line of input from keyboard */ 
int main() 
    printf("Input three numbers separated by comma : "); 
	fgets(line_text, sizeof(line_text), stdin);
	sscanf(line_text, "%d, %d, %d", &num1, &num2, &num3);
    sum = num1+num2+num3; 
    printf("The sum of three numbers : %d\n", sum);  

Sample Output:

Input three numbers seperated by comma : 5,10,15                                                              
The sum of three numbers : 30

C Programming: Tips of the Day

How to increment a pointer address and pointer's value?

First, the ++ operator takes precedence over the * operator, and the () operators take precedence over everything else.

Second, the ++number operator is the same as the number++ operator if you're not assigning them to anything. The difference is number++ returns number and then increments number, and ++number increments first and then returns it.

Third, by increasing the value of a pointer, you're incrementing it by the sizeof its contents, that is you're incrementing it as if you were iterating in an array.
