I am a student from lovely sunny Queensland in Australia. I am currently studying for a Bachelor of Technology (Infomation Systems). I am the 1/2 point and am really enjoying the challenge.

This current assignment that I am doing is a little too challenging for me. It has a list of 4 requirements that progressively build on each other. I have managed to get requirement 2 working. I am not sure if it is acceptable to post the assignment specs here or not so I will paraphrase them.

requirement 1: add two digits that are entered seperated by a space and then display the answer ie 6 8 The sum is 14. That is all good, got that working.

requirement 2: modify to accept multi-digit integers with the same number of digits up to 3 almost got that bit under control, it works until there is an overflow. ie the sum results in a 4 digit answer I end up getting an odd hex answer, I think I know where the problem is but really have no idea how to solve it, any help would be greatly appreciated. Once I have that bit sorted then maybe I can move on, or ask for more help

requirement 3: modify the program to accept multi-digit integers with numbers of different lengths. This I think I can work out but any hints wouldn't be rejected

and finally requirement 4: modify the program to accept floating point number of up to 3 digits each with exactly the same format,that is , with the same number of digits to either side of the decimal. This I have absolutely no idea how to do, again any hints would be greatly appreciated.

This is the segment of code where I think I have the problem, if more code is need I am happy to add all of it, but thought just for starter this would be a good place to be.

Sorry I am not very good at this, my whole assignment is a mismatch of bits of code found here and there, I am sure there is quite a bit of it that does absolutely nothing. I really do apologise for my ignorance, but I am giving this assignment 120% effort, I am just not getting it very well.

Thanks in advance for any help given, it will be very much appreciated.
