cout means output ,cin means input . you are entering something if you use cin , and you are taking results from computer with cout :)

cout stands for console output means something you want to show as output on console screen, cin stands for console input used when you need to take input from user on console screen

Cout stands for Compiler out, which is basically the functions that prints out something, Cin stands for Compiler in, which is the functions that allows you to input some information.

cout means output .in C language we hav printf to print the output whereas c++ offers cout in the place of printf . cin means scanf in c language here we use cin instead of scanf to read the data. cout=displays output. cin=reads our input

Cout is what the programm is putting out for example: cout << "Type whatever key" << endl; Cin would be the user typing in whatever key. Basically (I hope i'm right) cout is what the program puts out and cin is what it receives.

cout stands for C(c language)-out(put) so it outputs something and cin stands for C(c language)-in(put) so it "takes" and stores values.

cin is use for enter the any value like integer,float,string..... cout it use for represnting your input when use cin and cout it before it input #include<iostream.h> because. first leter of iostream in 'i' its indecates "input stream file" and second leter is indecates 'o' is "output stream file".
