Append digit to end of variable
I have this assignment for school where I have to create a very simple calculator program. No GUI, not even command line inputs. It's all being run inside the program with preset commands.
Here's the problem:
I can't figure out how to append a digit to the end of a variable.
The calculator must work like this:
(it is java, not php. The highlighting makes it easier to read)
Note: the digit method requires the number to be an int
A fairly straight forward approach would be to multiply your existing number by 10 and then add the new digit.
So in your example below the user enters 5. Since your initial number would be zero the operation would be ( 0 * 10 ) + 5. Now your calculator input is five. Then the user enters 3 so the next operation would be ( 5 * 10 ) + 3. Now the user input is 53 and so on and so forth.
Thanks. I was thinking about that in the first place, but didn't put too much thought into it, since I assumed there would be a more practical way.
