    Default Add a dollar sign to a number

    Hi,

    I'm writing a basic program that requires the user to input a number. When the input is printed, I would like to add a dollar sign to it. mu code is as follows:

    class Corruption
    {
        public static void main(String[] args)
        {
     
            ConsoleReader console = new ConsoleReader(System.in);
            System.out.println("Please enter the amount") ;
            int sec = console.readInt();          
            System.out.println(sec + "is the amount you entered");
     
     
        }
    }

    How do I give sec a $ at the beginning? Any help greatly is appreciated.

    How did you add text to the end of the number?
    Do the same thing to add text to the front...
    Or use printf or format
