    Unhappy (TOTAL BEGINNER)Stupid problem but still...

    Well I'm totally new to java so I may be posting stupid/easy to find questions, but could someone please tell me why this happens?

    Ok so this is my code :

    int age = 50
    System.out.println(age == 50 ? "Your 50" : "Your not 50");

    This code even when age is 50 it says "Your not 50"...It's always "Your not 50"...

    What I want to do is : I want when I change the age variable to change the output to either "your 50" (if age is 50) or "Your not 50"(if age isn't 50)

    Is it completely mistake?

    The above code does not compile without a trivial correction (missing ; )
    When I execute it, the output is: Your 50

    I don't understand your problem.

    OHH god I know what it was wrong XD

    The code right above this one was:

    System.out.println(age + age++);

    Which made my age + 1 so when I put 50 it was 51 thats why it was giving me that I wasn't 50..
    Sorry for that and thanks Norm for answering

    Didn't understand what are u really doing, but try using if() i guess:
    i will write an example:

    int age= 50;
     
    if(age==50)
        System.out.println("You are 50");
    else
        System.out.println("You aren't 50")

    hope could help

    Just for a side note: Very important but almost easy to forget things in Java includes: (- the semicolon, and also the ({})- opening and closing curly braces in code blocks and the use of () - opening and closing parenthesis in #constructors and methods. Hope this gives you more information.
