    using namespace std;
    int main()
    {
    int x;//the x
    int y;//the y
    int input;//another thing

    cout<<"2. devide\n";
    cout<<"3. addition\n";
    cout<<"4. subtraction\n";
    cout<<"please provide the number listed\n";
    cin>> input;
    switch ( input )
    {
    case 1:
    cout<<"please provide 2 numbers to be multiplied\n";
    cin>> x >> y ;
    cin.ignore();
    cout<<( x*y );
    cin.get();
    break;
    case 2:
    cout<<"please provide 2 numbers to be devided\n";
    cin>> x >> y ;
    cin.ignore();
    cout<<( x/y );
    cin.get();
    break;
    case 3:
    cout<<"pls provide 2 numbers to be added\n";
    cin>> x >> y ;
    cin.ignore();
    cout<<( x+y );
    cin.get();
    break;
    case 4:
    cout<<"pls provide 2 numbers to be subtracted\n";
    cin>> x >> y ;

    Just do a simple loop:

    And put the prompt to repeat after the switch statement.
    Also, I would put a default switch statement that says that input is not valid, ect.

    *edit*
    Also, a comment on your programming style.
    Do not be afraid to use spaces! It makes it much more readable.
