    Default switch and math problem issues

    I'm new to java and have a project that requires me to make a math quiz for an individual. its starts be having the individual choose between: addition(+), sub(-), mult, and div(/). from there there determine whether the user wants random integers of 1 or 2 decimal places.
    Not sure how to use the switch in this case, please help.

    Perhaps something like this.

    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class ReadChar {
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    		Scanner s = new Scanner(System.in);
    		int decimal;
    		switch (s.next().charAt(0)) {
    			case '/':
    			case '*':
    				decimal = 2;
    				decimal = 1;
