Im really confused on how to put " and ' in java.
For example:

I want to put: 32' 6"
then: 15' 11"
and get: 16' 7" <- output
I want the output to have both feet and inches and I also want to be ble to input feet and inches.

I cant get it to work, I was told to put "\"" in order to get ", and put "'" to get ', but all Im getting is an error I dont even know were to put the ' and " I really need help with this.
I really appreciate any help with this.
This is what I have so far:
