maybe it would make better sense if you worote it like this:
cout << "Please enter number";
n << cin;

or like this:
"Please enter number" >> cout;
cin >> n;

The arrows indicate the direction of the flow of data ...
in one case you want the data to flow from the constant string in your program, to the output device (cout)

In the other case, you want the data to flow from the input device (cin) to program variable.

the directive #include <iostream> is not the right header file. If you are writing code in standard C++, It should be #include<iostream.h> the .h you're missing here. Or code in ISO standard C++ ,     add the line " using namespace std; " right after the #include<iostream>.
And also you have the wrong shift operator for cin.
