    Default ArrayList Help

    Hello Everyone,

    I am having major problems with my code and I was wondering if someone could please help me out because I have been trying for a very long time to fix the problems, but really have no clue what to do. I am trying to write a program where members of a team each have a certain number of points ,but then they each get a percentage of their points deducted based on a formula. I already calculated how much each teammate gets deducted in a class and used a helper method called deduction(). Now, I want to put each teammate in an array list and have the deductions of each teammate in the array list. I then want the deductions to be added together to give me the total deductions of the team. However, I really don't know how to use array lists. Can anybody PLEASE help me?

    import java.util.ArrayList;
    public class Team {
    	ArrayList Teammember = new ArrayList();
    	public void teammemb(points teammember) {
    		team bluebirds = new team bluebirds;
    	public double totalDeductions() {
    		for(int i = 0; i < Teammember.size(); i++){
    			points teammember = (points) Teammember.get(i);
    		return Teammember.Deductions;

    Best way to solve your problems are with the following:

    "I don't get ArrayList, please help" isn't enough for us to go on and properly help you.
    You should either explain the exact areas you do not understand, and why or you should continue writing your programs and we will help you with any errors you get along the way.
