    Default tax return program..help finish please!!

    i am supposed to write a program using nested if/else statements and print the federal tax based on whether the user enter, single or married and how much their income is.

    the user should be able to run the program over and over until he/she types 'done'

    this is the tax table i have to follow...

    single married (percentage stays the same)
    tax bracket percentage tax bracket
    $0....$8,050 10% $0....$16,050

    Amount over $8,050, Amount over $16,050,
    up to $78,850 25% up to $131,450

    Amount over $78,850, Amount over $131,450,
    up to $187,550 30% up to $250,000

    Amount over $187,550 35% Amount over $250,050



    //Algorithm
    //1.Enter whether you are single or married.
    //2.Enter your income as a whole number.
    //3.

    import java.util.Scanner; //so I can use a scanner
    public class computeTax
     {
        public static void main (String[] args)
       {
               Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);
               System.out.print("Enter whether you are single or married.");
              String line = in.next();
    i am unsure how to declare single or married somewhere once the user enters it and im unsure how to make it work for the user to type done..

    please help!!

    I'm assuming the user is going to be typing in either "married" or "single" (exactly in that format, without the quotes):

    This is easy to solve by using a boolean flag to denote if the person is married.
    boolean isMarried = false;
    if ("married".equals(line))
    {
         isMarried = true;
    }

    Then, when you need to do different stuff depending on if they're married or not, use an if/else statement:
    if (isMarried)
    {
         // stuff to do if they're married
    }
    else
    {
         // stuff to do if they're not married (single)
    }

    yes but i need to have tax included....


    java.import.util.*;

    public class computeTax
    {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
    Scanner in = new Scanner(system.in);

    System.out.print("Please type single, if you are single, or married, if you are married.");
    String s = in.next();
    String m = in.next();

    System.out.print("Please enter your income as a whole number.");
    int income = in.nextInt();

    }

    }
