Hey, so I've been just practicing writing some simple programs trying to use loops and calling on functions. So I wrote this thing up real quick, and tried to get it to run, and I don't understand what's wrong. It's compiling with no errors or warnings, but every time I run it, the program just adds the two numbers no matter what I do. So I feel really stupid, but here it is. I've been staring at it for about 20 minutes making sure my FOR/ELSE loop is good and I've not forgotten anything obvious (I hope!)

I wrote an add function and a subtract function. I know you guys can probably figure out what I'm trying to do, but this is an explanation of how I see it running.

1. The user selects whether he wants to add or subtract.

2. Based on the selection it's a for loop that calls on the correct function.

3. The functions imports the stored numbers, does the math and posts it

4. The program finishes.

Code:#include <iostream> using namespace std; //subtract function int Subtract(int alpha, int omega){ cout<<"The total of " << alpha << " minus " << omega << " is...\n"; cout<< alpha - omega << endl; return 0; } //addition function int Additup(int apple, int orange){ cout<<"The total of " << apple << " plus " << orange << " is...\n"; cout<< apple + orange << endl; return 0; } //main function time! int main(){ int choice, num1, num2, num3; cout << "1 for addition, 2 for subtraction: "; cin >> choice; cin.ignore(); if(choice = 1){ cout<<"Enter the two numbers with a space inbetween then press enter: "; cin >> num1; cin >> num2; num3=Additup(num1,num2); } else{ cout<<"Enter the two numbers then press enter: "; cin >> num1; cin >> num2; num3=Subtract(num1, num2); } return 0; }

Also, one more thing. I understand that the code is both A) probably very inefficient for it's purpose, and B) might be a little sloppy. I know this, and I'm just working on the foundations right now. Thanks again for help!
