i wrote the below code for a calculator. however it is finding an error
when calling computation. can someone tell me what it is please???

private static String Equation ="";

return text;

}
return ParsedEquation;
}

ParsedEquation.removeElementAt(a-1);

ParsedEquation.add(a-1, answer);
}
}
}
for (int i=0; i<ParsedEquation.size();i++)
System.out.println("\t"+ParsedEquation.elementAt(i));
}

just change Object to char in Object [] operator  = {"+","-","*","/"};
