    Hello all. I'm experimenting with C++ for the Visual Studio 2008. I have written this code here below the first and I'm wondering how I'm supposed to enter a code allows the user to choose if they want to do an addition subtraction, multiplication, or division problem.

    I got some help from someone else that says that I need something like this in here. I'm wondering where exactly this should be put in the code and where I should replace some text with the math option of my choice.

    Code from other person
    Code:
    #include
    
    int main(void)
    {
          int choice = 2;
          if((choice>10) || (choice <1))
                choice = 11;
          switch(choice)
          {
                case 7:
                      printf("\nCongratulations!");
                      break;                    
                case 2:
                      printf("\nA");
                      break;
                case 8:
                      printf("\nB");
                      break;     
                case 11:
                      printf("\nC");
                default:
                      printf("\nSorry, you lose.\n");
                      break;             
          }
    My code
    Code:
    #include <iostream>

    Edit: Take note that I did post the < iostream > etc part. For some reason this site doesn't show them.
