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:

Posting code as a JPG image isn't the best way to do it. Please post as text and use code tags. Please read this for more information.

You can go back and change your post to add the code and tags by clicking the button on your post.

Welcome to the Ranch

Code tags, as Bear said, please, not colours.
