    There are quite a number of ways to proceed. It is probably easiest to enter numbers as integers, as you are doing. To be really safe, you can also check that each number is in the correct range of values before proceeding.

    Step 1. How could you check that a number is a 2 digit or a 3 digit number?

    In order to do the steps described, you need to break the second number into digits.

    Step 2. If you know you have a two digit number in "y", can you figure out how to get the two digits?

    That will do for a start...
