    Please copy the full text of the error message and paste it here. It has important info about the error.

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:
    [code=java]

    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.

    being highlighted
    What is the text of the error message.

    What is the statement supposed to do? See the tutorial about how to write constructors and methods: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutori...structors.html
    http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutori...O/methods.html

    The code has lost the indentations for nested statements. Statements within {} need to be indented.

    Here is the statement Norm
    I was trying to code from this below statement so I don't know where I went wrong.

    The FNB bank already has a Java application. But they want certain new features to be added and some existing functionality to be changed as per their new policies. For this, Angelina needs to address the following issues:
    1. There is a class named Accounts which calculates the interest on a particular account.




    ooooh the problem might be the
     public Accounts
    constructor, it is not suppose to return principal, interest and time isn't it?

    constructor, it is not suppose to return principal, interest and time
    Yes. A constructor builds the instance of the class. It does not return anything. Often a class will have getter methods that can be used to get data from a class.
