    Please post your code in code tags. You can learn how in the Announcemements stickie at the top of the What's Wrong With My Code Forum.

    What's wrong with your code? If there are errors, post them. If the results were not as expected, describe the differences and/or post sample runs of the "wrong" results. If you're having trouble explaining, you might want to post the assignment so we can do our own comparison, but it's best if you tell us what's "wrong".
