I’m working on a Engineering exercise and need support.
A skill-testing question, typically an exercise in arithmetic, is attached to many sweepstakes and contests in Canada. (Though not important for this assignment, this is used to work around a Canadian law making it illegal to distribute money or prizes for games of luck. The skill-testing question adds an element of skill to the game, which makes it legal.) A skill-testing question typically looks like the following: What is the answer to 4 + 2 × (8 − 2)/3?
Write a program that solves any skill-testing question in the form + × ( − )/ for any positive integers , , , , and . The user should be presented a message on the console to enter the values of , , , , and , one at a time, and then output the answer of the skill-testing question to the console.
Submit your source code in a file named SkillTest.java!
