    Unhappy Please need a help with my homework (math methods)

    Hello, I really need some help on some Java programming homework that is due tonight&tomorrow. Here is the homework (3 problems):

    1) (Displaying a Square of Asterisks) Write a method squareOfAsterisks that displays a solid square (the same number of rows and columns) of asterisks whose side is specified in integer parameter
    side. For example, if side is 4, the method should display

    ****
    ****
    ****

    =========
    2) (Circle Area) Write an application that prompts the user for the radius of a circle and uses a method called circleArea to calculate the area of the circle.

    =========
    3) (Hypotenuse Calculations) Define a method hypotenuse that calculates the hypotenuse of
    a right triangle when the lengths of the other two sides are given. The method should take two arguments of type double and return the hypotenuse as a double. Incorporate this method into an application that reads values for side1 and side2 and performs the calculation with the hypotenuse method. Use Math methods pow and sqrt to determine the length of the hypotenuse for each of the
    triangles in Fig. 6.15. [Note: Class Math also provides method hypot to perform this calculation.]

    Yes, also we have to use the main to call the methods.

    What kind of math do you need to do? Which of the Math class's methods are you having problems with?
    Can you make a small, complete program that shows the problem you are having?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    For the first problem, I have tried this code but still wrong!

    public class SquareAst
     
    {
     
    	public static void main (String [args]){
     
    		sq();
     
    public static void Sq ( int n1 )   
     
     
     
        {
     
         for (int n = 1; n <= n1; n++)
     
          {
     
            for (int m = 1; m <= n1; m++)
     
            {
     
             System.out.print("*");
     
                }
     
            System.out.println();
     
          }
     
           }
     
     
    }
    }

    1. take number from user using scanner class, and run loop inner and outer loop to print square *
    2. take radius from user using scanner class, calculate area=pie*radius
    3. take perpendicular and base from user using scanner class, now apply the theorem " h*h = p*p + b*b ", you will get all the answer by making function...

    Please copy the full text of the compiler's error messages. They contain important information about the problems. The abbreviated messages you posted leaves off info about the problem.

    The message should show the source with a ^ under the location of the error.
    Here is a sample from the javac compiler:
    TestSorts.java:138: cannot find symbol
    symbol  : variable var
    location: class TestSorts
             var = 2;
             ^

    Take a look at the tutorial for how to define a simple class and its main() method: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutori...ava/win32.html

    // take input from user in max variable; like max=5

    for (i=0;i<max;i++)
    {
    for (j=0;j<max;j++)
    {
    //print statement
    }
    //print statement for next line
    }

    }// your program ends here......

    }
    //I hope this is helpful to you.........

    2. How to calculate circle area

    class Circle
    {
    psvm(String args[])
    {
    // take input from user in radius variable; like max=10

    int area=pie*radius*radius;
    ///print area
    }// your program ends here......

    }

    {
    // take input from user in perp and base variable; like perp=12 and base =5

    int h_side=SQRT(perp*perp+base*base);

    just type "System.out.print("*");" in_place_of "System.out.println("*");", and your program will run fine........
