    I'm stupid, heres why(it doesnt work!)

    #include <iostream.h>
    int main()
    {
    int a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h;
    cout<<"Welcome to the Age Finder! What year is it now?";
    cin>>a,b,c,d;
    cout<<"Ah, yes! Now I remember...The year is "<<a,b,c,d;
    cout<<" Speaking of the year, what year were you born in?";
    cin>>e,f,g,h;
    cout<<" Wow..."<<e,f,g,h;
    cout<<" That means you must be ";
    cout<<(a,b,c,d-e,f,g,h);
    cin.get();
    return 0;

    Cin delimits at whitespace, not individual characters. Make 2 variable of type int and cin to them. then subtract one from the other.
