    Hi,

    you declared variable is "investment" but u assigned value to "Investment" variable. then you should give the expression like this p*(1+(r/100))*y. It will work.

    I fixed it like this,

    // File: Investment2.java
    // CS256 Lab 2
    // Author: Gary Lee Kuhre
    // Created: January 19, 2014

    public class Investment2
    {
    public static void main (String [] args)
    {
    double p, r, y;
    double z;

    p = (3500.00);
    r = (3.6);
    y = (25);
    z = p*(1+(r/100))*y;


    Output.showValue("Your Future Investment Value is", z);

    } // method main

    } // class Investment2
