    Default School project

    I need major help with my project for my class. I don't know where to even begin because I am so confused. In the program I need to be able to write in the number of sales of a certain size then it needs to be able to compute the total of that size and also compute the overall sale total.
    I honestly have no idea where to begin and if anyone could help me or lead me in the right direction it would be much appreciated.

    You're confused?!? How do you think we feel? How are we supposed to help you with the information you've provided? So far, all I can tell you is to start at the beginning. Understanding the assignment/project is the first step, and we'll help you with that if you tell us what it is. The "number of sales of a certain size then it needs to be able to compute the total of that size and also compute the overall sale total" is pretty much nonsense, or it's just multiplication and addition. How hard can that be?

    well considering that I have never done any coding and this is my first programming class. it's kind of difficult when you don't understand anything in the class so excuse me for trying to ask for help.

    You're excused all to heck, but there's just not much we can do. We can't teach you what you've failed to pick up in class. We can't help you understand better than the instructor or the TAs are able, especially when you don't understand enough to even explain what you need help with or understand enough to ask helpful questions. You need to take advantage of whatever help outside class the instructor offers to catch up.

    Midnight21, I'm sorry you're having trouble. Programming, I find, is a lot more difficult than most people expect. There's some real shell shock when you get your first exposure to it. But our problem is that your description of the assignment isn't very clear. But let's try and assess what you do know.

    Do you know how to create a program? If I asked you to write a program that simply printed "Hello world!" to the screen, would you be able to do that?
    Do you know how to declare variables? If I asked you to declare an integer variable named "number", assign it a value of 10, and then print that value to the screen (by referencing the variable; don't just print out the number 10), could you do that?
    Do you know how to do math in Java? If I asked you to declare a variable named "bignumber", assign it the value of 1434 * 941, then print that value out, could you do that?
    Do you understand how to get input from the user? If I asked you to write a program that took the value of "number" from a user, could you do that?
