The letters of lecture 36: Using If statements in C++

Hello fellow students,

Today I was going trough course lecture number 36, and doing the challenge. When watching the explanation that comes after this challenge, the teacher uses "i’ for bulls and ‘j’ for cows. Why does he use these letters? Is the thing I did below invalid, will it give me problems later on?

As you can see, I used the word ‘bull’ instead of ‘i’ and the word ‘cow’ instead of ‘j’.

Kind regards,

Hey Kim,
I don’t think it will mess up the code at all, I think they use I and “L” for short syntaxing to help keep the lines of code organized.
