    Default please help!

    This is due in a few hours....this is the first java program I have been asked to write and I have no idea how to do it and I left my textbook in my friend's car.

    I have to write a program that asks a user for their birth month, birth date, and birth year, and then tell them what day they will turn 100. This is what i have so far.
    import java.util.Scanner;
     
    public class PrintBirthday
    {
      public static void main(String[] args)
      {
        Scanner stdIn = new Scanner(System.in);
        String month; // birthday month
        double day; // birth day
        double year; //birth year
        double oldyear = 0; //year turning 100
        System.out.print(
          "Enter the month you were born: ");
        month = stdIn.next();
        System.out.print(
    		"Enter the day you were born: ");
    	day = stdIn.nextDouble();
    	System.out.print(
    		"Enter the year you were born: ");
    	year = stdIn.nextDouble();
    	oldyear += year+100;
        System.out.println("You will be 100 on " +
          month() + day() + oldyear(0));
      } // end main
    } // end class PrintBirthday

    That looks about right - apart from the obvious syntax errors. Fix those and tell us what the output is.

    Spoon-feeding is NOT helpful. Sean4u had the right approach. Please read this before you post again: The Problem with Spoon-feeding
