    fakeSwap( seven, eight );
    cout << seven << " = " << SEVEN << "\nNo. \n"
            << eight  << " = " << EIGHT  << endl;

    realSwap(EIGHT, SEVEN);
    cout << seven << " = " << SEVEN << '\n'

Your issue is that the variables "seven" and "eight" are not declared in main(). They were declared as local variables in a function and cannot be accessed in main(). In order to access them in main(), you can return their values from the fakeSwap() and realSwap() functions in an std::pair. Just use std::pair<int, int> as the return type for the function. This allows a pair holding two integer elements to be returned. You can also store each element separately in its own variable. You can access the elements in the pair using this syntax:  pairName.first  for the first element,  pairName.second  for the second one. Hope this helps!
