    Angry Whats going wrong here?

    Writing a inflation calc for class

    import java.util.Scanner;

    public class InflationCalculator {

    public static void main(String[] args){
    Scanner keyboard = new Scanner (System.in);
    RateOfInflation rateObject = new RateOfInflation();

    int cost, numberOfYears;
    double rateOfInflation;

    System.out.print("Enter the current cost of the item:");
    cost = keyboard.nextInt();

    System.out.println("Enter the expected inflation rate per year");
    System.out.print("(Enter as a percentage and do not include the percent sign");
    rateOfInflation = (keyboard.nextInt() * .01);

    System.out.print("Enter the whole number of years in the future to project cost:");
    numberOfYears = keyboard.nextInt();

    rateObject.calcMethod(cost, numberOfYears, rateOfInflation);


    RateOfInflation.java <---- Error

    public class RateOfInflation {
    public double calcMethod(int cost, int numberOfYears, double rateOfInflation){
    int n = 0;
    double answer;
    while (n == numberOfYears){
    answer = (cost * rateOfInflation) + cost;
    System.out.println( answer );

    First of all, you should wrap you code so that it is easily readable. Next, what is your problem specifically? You posted your code with a line that says "RateOfInflation.java <---- Error" yet fail to mention what the error is. What are you expecting your program to do and what is it doing? Is the RateofInflation.java actually inside of the InflationCalculator file or is it in a separate file?
