    Default Program not working - assistance please

    I have gone over and over this code. I still get errors when I check it with an online java tester. It is simple. Please help. Thanks.


    import java.util.Scanner;

    public class coordinate
    {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
    Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);

    // Enter a point with two double values
    System.out.print("Enter a point with two coordinates: ");
    double x = input.nextDouble();
    double y = input.nextDouble();

    // Compute the horizontal distance to the center of the rectangle
    double hDistance = Math.pow(x * x, 0.5);

    // Compute the vertical distance to the center of the rectangle
    double vDistance = Math.pow(y * y, 0.5);

    if (hDistance <= 5 || vDistance <= 2.5)
    System.out.println("Point (" + x + ", " + y +
    ") is in the rectangle");
    else
    System.out.println("Point (" + x + ", " + y +
    ") is not in the rectangle");
    }
    }

    Default Coordinates within a rectangle

    I have tried this several different ways. Could someone please tell me what is wrong with this code? Thank you.

    import java.util.Scanner;

    public class Coordinates
    {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
    Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);

    // Enter a point with two double values
    System.out.print("Enter a point with two coordinates: ");
    double x = input.nextDouble();
    double y = input.nextDouble();

    // Compute the horizontal distance to the center of the rectangle
    double hDistance = Math.pow(x * x, 0.5);

    // Compute the vertical distance to the center of the rectangle
    double vDistance = Math.pow(y * y, 0.5);

    if (hDistance <= 5 || vDistance <= 2.5)
    System.out.println("Point (" + x + ", " + y +
    ") is in the rectangle");
    else
    System.out.println("Point (" + x + ", " + y +
    ") is not in the rectangle");
    }
    }

    We can't really tell you what's wrong with it if you don't tell us what it does wrong. Does it compile? Does it run? Does it exhibit some strange behavior? Something else?

    There is no problem in your code, you must try to compile it using java compiler instead of online java application tester.
    the program is working great for me after i tested it.
