What Methond to use?

What Methond to use?

I am trying to output the suffix for streets. and avenue numbers But not sure what method to use to extract the first string. I need to use a switch statement for each of the cases below. What do you recommend I use for the following:

•Numbers with a 1 in the tens place (for example: 11, 14, 216) should have a 'th' suffix
•All other numbers ending in 1 should have a 'st' suffix
•All other numbers ending in 2 should have a 'nd' suffix
•All other numbers ending in 3 should have a 'rd' suffix
•All other Numbers should have a 'th' suffix

thank you.

RE: What Methond to use?

I'd try and keep it fairly readable rather than try some convoluted piece of logic that looks funky:


        int units = num % 10;
        int tens = num % 100 - units;
        if(tens == 10) {
        } else {
            switch(units) {
            case 1:
            case 2:
            case 3:
