    Default Does this code meet the standards set forth?

    Hey guys,

    This is my answer to a homework problem and i have the program working but i want to make sure you agree that it meets the functionality because its worded funky.

    Any input is apprciaited

    Problem: Write a method named multiple that determines, for a pair of integers, whether the second integer is a multiple of the first. The method should take two integer arguments and return true if the second is a multiple of the first and false otherwise. [Hint: Use the remainder operator.] The main () method in the test driver should read two integers, call multiple to determine if one is a multiple of the other, and print a message i.e. as in:
    The number 4 is a multiple of the number 2
    or
    The number 5 is not a multiple of 2

    There is no need to create two classes simply the test driver.

     
    import java.util.Scanner; //Allows me get values from users.
     
    public class multiples 
    {
    	public static void main(String[] args)
    	{
    		//Initializes Scanner for use
    		Scanner input=new Scanner(System.in);
     
    		//Declaring the Variables I will use.
    		int FirstNumber;
    		int SecondNumber;
    		boolean isamultiple;
     
    		System.out.println("Please Enter First Integer:  \n");
    		FirstNumber = input.nextInt();
    		System.out.println("\nPlease Enter Second Interger:  \n");
    		SecondNumber=input.nextInt();
    		isamultiple=testmultiple(FirstNumber,SecondNumber);
    		if (isamultiple)
     
    			System.out.printf("\nThe number %s is a multiple of the number %s",FirstNumber, SecondNumber);
    		else
    			System.out.printf("\nThe Number %s is not a multiple of the number %s", FirstNumber,SecondNumber);
    			System.exit(0);		
    	}
     
    	public static boolean testmultiple(int Number1, int Number2)
    	{
    		if (Number1%Number2 == 0)
    			return true;
    		else
    			return false;

    whether the second integer is a multiple of the first.
    You have done the opposite.

    1. Incomplete code.
    You haven't done that.
    He did but with other name testmultiple, so standard is not met here
    They want you to implement multiple, not testmultiple.

    Do you think I'm stupid? The whole point of my post was to highlight the incorrect name.
