    Do you have any specific questions about your assignment?
    Please post your code and any questions about problems you are having.

    it does not complie
    Please copy the full text of the error messages and post it here.

    What values can the user enter? What will the switch statement do with those values?

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:
    [code=java]
    <YOUR CODE HERE>
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
