    Default Cannot get my head around this :S

    For my college summer task I have been given this as question two, I simply cannot get my head around it!


    Create a class Exercise2 with the code below:

    import java.util.Scanner;  //package needed to read from keyboard
    public class Exercise2
    {
       public static void main (String[] args)
       {
           //declare Scanner and integer variables
           Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
           int allMonths, years, partMonths;
     
           //ask for age in months
           System.out.print("Age in months: ");
     
           //set allMonths to value typed in
           //code here
     
           //calculate years from allMonths
           //code here
           //calculate partMonths from allMonths
           //code here
     
           //display message about calculated years and months
           //code here
       }//end main
    }//end class


    Currently the program prompts the user for a number of months but does not yet calculate and output how many years and months this is equivalent to. For example when the user types an input of 40 the program output should be:
    Age in months: 40
    40 months = 3 years and 4 months

    What you need to do
    Modify the program so that for an input number of months the whole years and months are calculated and displayed

    Test your program with age in months values as follows.
    Test 1: 11
    Test 2: 24
    Test 3: 30

    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    I have tried and got this so far,
    ---------------------------------------------------------------


    import java.util.Scanner;  //package needed to read from keyboard
    public class Exercise2
    {
       public static void main (String[] args)
       {
           //declare Scanner and integer variables
           Scanner scan = new Scanner (System.in);
           int allMonths, years, partMonths;
     
           //ask for age in months
           String inData;
     
           System.out.println("Age in months: ");
           inData = scan.nextLine();
     
           //set allMonths to value typed in
     
     
           //calculate years from allMonths
           //code here
           //calculate partMonths from allMonths
           //code here
     
           //display message about calculated years and months
           //code here
       }//end main
    }//end class
    Not much I know, but atleast i'm trying! Some help would be greatly appreciated!
