    Default Help with methods?

    import java.util.*;
    public class triangle{
    static double base,height,side3,area,perimeter;
    public static void main(String[]args){
    getPerimeter();
    getSides();
    }
    public static void getPerimeter(){
    Scanner in=new Scanner(System.in);
    System.out.println("Enter a side of a triangle");
    base=in.nextDouble();
    System.out.println("Enter another side");
    height=in.nextDouble();
    System.out.println("Enter the last side");
    side3=in.nextDouble();
    System.out.println("The perimeter of your triangle is " +perimeter);
    perimeter=(base+height+side3);

    }

    public static void getSides(){

    if(base==height){
    if(side3==height)
    System.out.println("Your triangle is an Equilateral Triangle");
    }

    if(base!=height){
    if(side3==height)
    System.out.println("Your triangle is an Isoceles Triangle");
    }

    if(base==height){
    if(side3!=height)
    System.out.println("Your triangle is an Isoceles Triangle");
    }
    if(base!=height){
    if(base==side3)
    System.out.println("Your triangle is an Isoceles Triangle");
    }
    if(base!=height){
    if(height!=side3)
    if(side3!=base)
    if(height!=base)
    System.out.println("Your triangle is a Scalene Triangle");
    }
    System.out.println();
    }
    }

    Can anyone help me with my code? I think there is something wrong with my first method it won't output the perimeter for me. I'm only a beginner at java so I can use some help please :]
