Seems like homework.

Write a state machine.

A possible way of doing it:

Use a variable that represents the current state.
In a loop: use a SWITCH statement where each CASE represents a state's actions and transitions to other states, based on the input (getch() or similar).

Write something.  Post it here if you have problems and we'll help.

And the switch statement itself should be enclosed in an input loop.

Alexo is right - post what you have done or tried and we will help.   You should at least try, especially if it is homework

It looks like this might even be doable with a scanf.
But the problem statement is rather unclear to me,
If you could post the code you've written, we may be able to help
you with debugging it.
