    Default If statement problems

    I'm only like two days into my first Java...well first programming class ever and here's my issue, or the issue I created for myself rather.

    For starters it's a basic BMI program. I have the basics down, pretty simple. At the end of the program after all input has been made and a BMI determined I want it to print results like: Your BMI is less than 18.5, you are underweight...which is fine, I can do that. However Theres a range for normal and overweight, ranges 18.5 - 24.9 and 25 - 29.9 for overweight. How would I create the relational operator on a range of values such as these to print the proper result?

    Combine the operators. See Equality, Relational, and Conditional Operators . If you get stuck along the way I'd recommend posting code with a defined question to get a quicker and more precise response.

    here's an example for you
    if ( myVariable >= 20 && myVariable <=30 ){
        System.out.println("you failed" );
    }else if ( .......... ){
         ...........
    }
