hey, this program is supposed to calculate fractions, and I feel that I have most of the code down, but I can't get past the

fractions.cpp:50: error: expected primary-expression before 'char'

error, its probably something misicule, but I can't get it for the life of me. The error is in the main function. heres my code. THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCE!!!
