    Default Math.PI sometimes works, and sometimes doesn't. Help!?

    Hello there,

    I wrote this simple code as I'm learning to program in Java, and I don't understand what the problem is with the code. Sometimes it will compile and sometime it shows the error in the image I've attached. Can anyone help?

    Many thanks,

    Give your class another name. Maybe testMath or some such thing.

    <nitpick>Classes should start with an uppercase letter: TestMath, or MathTest or whatever...</nitpick>

    @OP: Ask if you don't see why Math is not a good choice of class name.
