    Default Java Beginner: Help with methods and returning values (hailstone program)

    Hello everyone, I am rather new to java and I need some help with understand methods.

    I can figure out how to call the integers and I returns from each method. I have attached my .java file and I appreciate everyones help.

    I need to call int length, int start and int max. Each integer is returned from its own method.

    I am unsure how to call the integers to output them.

    finally figured it out.

    all i needed was

    int start = getStartingValue(in);
    int max = computeMax(start);
    int length = computeLength(start);
    outputResults(start, length, max);

    thanks!
