    Welcome to the forum

    Break the problem down into subsets.

    # create a main method
    # read the requested input from the keyboard
    # manually work out on pen and paper what the date would be
    # create a logical expression to represent that

    Look at the Calendar class. It has lots of useful methods.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
