    Code for Assignment Day 3

    public class MathCalculator {
    private static Integer add(Integer a, Integer b){
    return a+b;
    private static Integer multiply(Integer a, Integer b){
    return a*b;

    private static Integer subtract(Integer a, Integer b){
    return a-b;

    private static void printOutput(Integer a, Integer b){
    System.debug(‘Summation of 2 values:’ + add(a,b));
    System.debug(‘Multiplication of 2 values:’ + multiply(a,b));
    System.debug(‘Substraction of 2 values:’ + subtract(a,b));
    public void doMath(Integer a, Integer b){
    printOutput(a, b);


    In Developer Console –> Open Execute Anonymous Window
    MathCalculator mathCalculator = new MathCalculator();
