    I know this is a ridiculous question but I've only just started to learn c++ a few days ago, I'm trying to figure out how to add 12 and 33 together. So I want the sum to display 45.

    this is what I have so far:

    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    int main ( ) {

    int
    a = 12;
    b = 33;
    char sum;
    sum = a + b;

    cout << "The sum of 12 and 33 is " << sum;
    cout << "\n";

    return 0;
    }

    please help me and my stupidity, and thank you very much!

    Why on earth you are trying to add two numbers into a character?
