    Default Java error "java.util.UnknownFormatConversionException"

    Why do I get this error?
     
    Exception in thread "main" java.util.UnknownFormatConversionException: Conversio
    n = '5'
            at java.util.Formatter.checkText(Formatter.java:2502)
            at java.util.Formatter.parse(Formatter.java:2484)
            at java.util.Formatter.format(Formatter.java:2413)
            at java.io.PrintStream.format(PrintStream.java:920)
            at java.io.PrintStream.printf(PrintStream.java:821)
            at Maclaurin1.main(Maclaurin1.java:55)
    Press any key to continue . . .


    All I want to do is convert a number from degrees to radians (Math.toRadians())and find the Math.sin and Math.cos of it

    there is no need to post your question in all the forums. Better to ask the right question once than the wrong question many times. As I said to you in the other thread post a code excerpt - the part where you call printf.

    Don't mean to sound harsh, but you're dragging old threads posting a link to one site.
