    Default Calling a Method with my Hexagon Area Calculator

    I have the following code. I am learning methods and need to create a separate method so I can call a method that will calculate the area of the regular hexagon based on the input ( the side given ).

    import java.util.*;
     
    public class HexagonAreaCalculator {
     
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    		Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
     
    		System.out.println("Enter the side of a hexagon");
    		double side = input.nextDouble();
     
    		float area = (float) ((( 3 * Math.pow(3, .5) * Math.pow(side, 2))) / 2);
    		if (side == 0)
    			System.out.println("Nope uh uh u can't do that");
    		else 
     
    			System.out.println("The area is " + area);
     
     
     
     
    	}
     
    	//public static float hexArea(float a) {
     
    	//}
    }

    Default Re: Calling a Method with my Hexagon Area Calculator

    You currently have code calculating the area inside the main method but it should be in the hexArea method. So you need to move your code into that method and then call it from the main method. Don't forget to do something with the returned value (major mistake of learners).
