    Default Cannot add values

    for: double mediumSubTotal, I want to declare MEDIUM_RATE * medium + childSubTotal, but it's giving me a syntax error "cannot find symbol" when I try to add childSubTotal

    private void childButtonMouseClicked(java.awt.event.MouseEvent evt) {                                         
     
            childCounter++;
            childQuantity.setText(String.valueOf(childCounter));
     
            int child = Integer.parseInt(childQuantity.getText());
            double childSubTotal = CHILD_RATE * child;
            double childTax = childSubTotal * MD_STATE_TAX;
            double childTotal = childSubTotal + childTax;
     
            subTotal.setText(String.valueOf(fmt.format(childSubTotal)));
            tax.setText(String.valueOf(fmt.format(childTax)));
            total.setText(String.valueOf(fmt.format(childTotal)));
     
        }                                        
     
        private void mediumButtonMouseClicked(java.awt.event.MouseEvent evt) {                                          
     
            mediumCounter++;
            mediumQuantity.setText(String.valueOf(mediumCounter));
     
            int medium = Integer.parseInt(mediumQuantity.getText());
            double mediumSubTotal = MEDIUM_RATE * medium;
            double mediumTax = mediumSubTotal * MD_STATE_TAX;
            double mediumTotal = mediumSubTotal + mediumTax;
     
            subTotal.setText(String.valueOf(fmt.format(mediumSubTotal)));
            tax.setText(String.valueOf(fmt.format(mediumTax)));
            total.setText(String.valueOf(fmt.format(mediumTotal)));
     
        }

    childSubTotal is local to the first method. It goes away outside the method.
    JavaScript is NOT Java.

    Is it because the first method is private? How can I fix this?

    I'm using NetBeans GUI builder
