    Cool help with the logic on this letter grade program.

    hey,

    help me think of a good way to get after the logic of this program:


    ---------------------
    Write a program that translates a number into the closest letter grade. For example, the number 2.8 (which might have been the average of several grades) would be converted to B-. Break ties in favor of the better grade; for example, 2.85 should be a B.
    Use a class Grade with a method getLetterGrade().

    Here's a simple hint: If-then-else statements

    my idea was to have a couple of local double variables with a constructor public Grade(double value) that constructor's parameter is what receives the user input from the tester class. then, i would have a series of if-else if statements inside the method getLetterGrade(). even though you just offered a simple hint, that really helped, so i award you a thanks.
