    Default My code is 99%, 1 error I can't fix, can you?

    import java.util.Scanner;

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

    do
    {
    System.out.println("Enter your bank account dollars in whole dollars and cents.");

    double initialBalance = keyboard.nextDouble();

    System.out.println("Enter interest on your bank account as a whole number.");
    System.out.println("For example, a 4.5% interest rate would be entered as \"4.5\":");

    double interestRate = keyboard.nextDouble();
    double yearBalance = initialBalance;
    double monthBalance = initialBalance;
    double dayBalance = initialBalance;
    int year;
    int month;
    int day;
    char answer;

    for (year = 1; year <= 10; year++)
    {
    yearBalance = (yearBalance * (interestRate / 100.0));
    }
    for (month = 1; month <= 120; month++)
    {
    monthBalance = (monthBalance * (interestRate / 1200.0));
    }
    for (day = 1; day <= 3650; day++)
    {
    dayBalance = (dayBalance * (interestRate / 36500.0));
    }
    System.out.println("An initial investment of " + initialBalance + " will become one of the following over ten years.");
    System.out.println("If interest is accrued yearly at " + interestRate + "%, you will have a total of " + yearBalance + ".");
    System.out.println("If interest is accrued monthly at " + interestRate + "%, you will have a total of " + monthBalance + ".");
    System.out.println("If interest is accrued daily at " + interestRate + "%, you will have a total of " + dayBalance + ".");
    System.out.println("Would you like to calculate again using a different balance and/or interest rate? Answer \"Y\" or \"N\":");
    answer = keyboard.nextLine().toUpperCase().charAt(0);

    } while (answer == 'Y');
    }
    }[/B]

    --- Update ---

    the error shows the carrot under the word answer, on the last "while" line
