I am trying to implement an interface so that the main program would work.

Any light? I am having a difficult time trying to understand interface :/

interface ArithmeticOperator {

    // Returns the result of applying the operator to operands a and b.
    double operate (double a, double b);

    // Return a String that is the name of this operator.
    public void printName (String a);//{

	//String printName ();
};



interface OperatorIterator {

    // Apply the operator op repeatedly to the startValue, for numIterations
    // times, e.g., for numIterations=4 you would return
    //    op (startValue, op (startValue, op (startValue, startValue)))
    double iterate (ArithmeticOperator op, double startValue, int numIterations);

}


public class Exam1 {

    public static void main (String[] argv)
    {
        // Test 1:
        System.out.println ("TEST 1:");
        ArithmeticOperator add = OperatorFactory.get ("add");
        System.out.println ("  1 " + add.printName() + " 2 = " + add.operate (1,2));
        ArithmeticOperator sub = OperatorFactory.get ("sub");
        System.out.println ("  3 " + sub.printName() + " 2 = " + sub.operate (3,2));
        ArithmeticOperator mult = OperatorFactory.get ("mult");
        System.out.println ("  3 " + mult.printName() + " 2 = " + mult.operate (3,2));
        ArithmeticOperator div = OperatorFactory.get ("div");
        System.out.println ("  3 " + div.printName() + " 2 = " + div.operate (3,2));

        // Test 2:
        System.out.println ("TEST 2:");
        ArithmeticOperator add2 = OperatorFactory.get ("add");
        ArithmeticOperator sub2 = OperatorFactory.get ("sub");
        System.out.println ("  Does add2==add? " + add2.equals(add));
        System.out.println ("  Does add2==sub2? " + add2.equals(sub2));

        // Test 3:
        System.out.println ("TEST 3:");
        OperatorIterator opIter = new OpIterator ();
        System.out.println ("  3 * 8 = " + opIter.iterate(add, 3, 8));
        System.out.println ("  3 ^ 4 = " + opIter.iterate(mult, 3, 4));
    }

}

public class ArithmeticOperatorImpl implements ArithmeticOperator {
  ....
}
public class OpIterator implements OperatorIterator {
  ....
}

Then create the OperatorFactory class that creates ArithmeticOperatorImpl objects and returns them based on the input
