    Default multiple methods in one class

    Is it possible to have multiple methods in one class?
    And can I use the Scanner in methods other than the main method?

    Many thanks

    Odd question. It's unusual to NOT have multiple methods in one class. Yes, a Scanner object may be used in methods other than the main() method. These are both odd questions and could be easily answered by writing a few lines of code.

    thank you Greg. I'm just trying to figure out why one of my methods don't work when I run the programme.
