I cannot figure this out...when i cout<<solve; it comes up some crazy number...like it has been assigned no value ever???? I don't know what I'm doing wrong?????

Here is my program:

//PROBLEM: math choice

#include <iostream.h>

#include <conio.h>

#include <iomanip.h>

#include <string.h>

float adding(a,b){return float(a+b);};

float subtract(a,b){return float(a-b);};

float multiply(a,b){return float(a*b);};

float divided(a,b){return float(a/b);};

int main(){

float a,b,solve;

char sign,answer;

do{

cout<<"Please enter your mathematical"<<endl;

cout<<"expression: ";

cin>>a;

cin>>sign;

cin>>b;

switch (sign){

case '+': { solve=(adding(a,b));

break;}

case '-': { solve=(subtract(a,b));

break;}

case '*': {solve=(multiply(a,b));

break;}

case '/': { solve=(divided(a,b));

break;}

default : {cout<<"Please choose either +,-,*, or /."<<endl;

solve=0;}}

if((sign=='+')||(sign=='-')||(sign=='*')||(sign=='/')){

cout.setf(ios::showpoint);

cout.setf(ios::fixed);

cout<<"Your expression, ";

cout<<setprecision(2)<<a<<sign<<b<<" = "<<solve<<endl;}

cout<<"Would you like to enter another expression?"<<endl;

cout<<"Enter 'y' for yes and 'n' for no. Answer: ";

cin>>answer;

}while(answer=='y');

getch();

return 0;}

Somebody Please Tell me how to do this...My teacher is an idiot and has no idea either....I need some help!!!!!
