    Not enough parentheses (for an if statement). Semicolon.

    You can also write:Operators (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Language Basics)
    System.out.println(total >= 18.5 && total <= 24.9)

    It works thanks to the rules of Order of operations - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
