Have you been told to write the functions the way you have?

I would have probably thought of reading a number, operator and number in the loop.

We have been instructed to use sub functions. The logic behind my code was to use if/else statements to decipher what mathematical operator will be used to calculate the two numbers that have been input.

Your

If you wish to run your code you don't need any parameters in you function.

Functions (I)

Are you getting any errors?

*if*statements are fine, they call the function associated with the operator. If you ask for the numbers as well you can pass the numbers to the sub-function which will perform the correct mathematical operation.If you wish to run your code you don't need any parameters in you function.

void addition(float a, float b, float total) { cout << "Enter two integers (separated by a single space): "; cin >> a, b; total = a + b; cout << "The sum is: " << total << endl; }

If you have declared your add function like this, you have to call it like this.

addition(firstArgumentToBePassed, secondArgumentToBePassed, etc, etc...);

As you call it now, you could just change you functions.

void addition() { int a, b, total = 0; cout << "Enter two integers (separated by a single space): "; cin >> a, b; total = a + b; cout << "The sum is: " << total << endl; }

Don't write "Enter two integers", and then use floats BTW.
