Time Nick Message 22:32 usandfriends hi 20:33 pdurbin wow, welcome to all the new people! 20:07 sfisque npnp 20:06 SageOfFailure Thanks sfisque ! 20:06 SageOfFailure There's only like 11 people here. I hope so 20:06 sfisque i will be afk, but maybe someone else will be around. you can always ask questions and check back. people come and go from afk alot 20:05 SageOfFailure I'm going to have more questions within the next hour(I need to read up on printf real quick). Will you be here to help me? 20:05 SageOfFailure just wrote "double monthly = fsl.nextDouble()/12;" 20:04 sfisque :-D 20:04 SageOfFailure Nice, it worked 20:03 SageOfFailure I guess I'll try that then. I was thinking there might be a specific way to do it with a java method or object 20:03 sfisque but you might have to coerce the Double to a double 20:03 sfisque if you're on a relatively modern jvm you should be able to, due to auto boxing 20:02 SageOfFailure Can I just take fsl.nextDouble() and divide it by 12? 20:02 sfisque aye. well that's your answer. just translate that sentence into a math equation 20:02 SageOfFailure I want to switch that out with a variable "monthly" instead and have it be what the user inputs divided by 12 20:01 SageOfFailure See where I created the variable "annual" 20:01 SageOfFailure Here's a picture of my current program 20:01 SageOfFailure http://prntscr.com/8huibg 20:01 sfisque ah 20:01 SageOfFailure I just want some tips 20:01 SageOfFailure It's due tonight, and we don't do help requests 20:00 sfisque does your class have a TA or does the prof have an email you can send help requests to? 20:00 SageOfFailure My bad 20:00 SageOfFailure Oh right, you have to login, huh? 20:00 sfisque that link doesnt work for me 20:00 SageOfFailure For a computer science class 20:00 SageOfFailure This is a program for school 20:00 sfisque if you are just learning java for the first time 19:59 sfisque you might want to explore something simpler, like "hello world" or adding two numbers together 19:59 SageOfFailure Look at that link if you want to understand better what I'm supposed to do 19:59 SageOfFailure http://moodle2.lsu.edu/pluginfile.php/1260228/mod_resource/content/16/csc1350proj01f15.pdf 19:58 SageOfFailure I'm a beginner programmer 19:58 SageOfFailure No idea what you're talking about :D 19:58 sfisque i'm not very versed in financial math, but if you're trying to read input from the user, in java, you pretty much have 3 avenues for a "simple" program. either pass in as an argument to the program [main( String argv ) ], use an InputStream or Reader to read stdin, or gather input from a graphical widget via swing/awt window. 19:56 SageOfFailure Can you help me, sfisque Xd 19:56 SageOfFailure Yeah :( 19:55 sfisque aye 19:55 SageOfFailure I tried joining ##java but it won't say anything 19:55 SageOfFailure Hey, is anyone here that can help me?
