First off, I want to say that I am brand new to programming (I started yesterday). I thought that for my first actual project I would make a calculating program with the four basic functions of addition, subraction, multiplication, and division. I made one that works, but my problem is that I couldnt find a way to make the program so that you actually have to input the +, -, *, and /. Is there any way to do this? Here's what I have right now.

Code:

#include <stdio.h>
int main ()
{
int v;
int w=1;
int x;
int y;
int z;
do {
printf("Add-1, Subtract-2, Multiply-3, Divide-4: ");
scanf("%d", &z);
if(z==1) {
printf("Type the two numbers you would like to add: ");
}
else if(z==2) {
printf("Type the two numbers you would like to subtract: ");
}
else if(z==3) {
printf("Type the two numbers you would like to multiply: ");
}
else if(z==4) {
printf("type the two numbers you would like to divide: ");
}
else
printf("Reset?");
if(z) {
scanf("%d", &x);
scanf("%d", &y);
if(z==1) {
v = x + y;
}
else if(z==2) {
v = x - y;
}
else if(z==3) {
v = x * y;
}
else if(z==4) {
v = x / y;
}
printf("The result is %d\n", v);
getchar ();
}
}
while (w);
}
