    Default beginner error

    . Hello, I'm new with programming, and new with Java. If someone can help me I will be gratefull. How can I solve this error:
    Error: Could not find or load main class javaapplication1.JavaApplication1
    Java Result: 1
    and the code is:

    import java.util.Scanner;

    class JavaApplication1{

    public static void main(String[] args) {

    scanner input = new scanner(System.in);
    int total = 0;
    int grade;
    int average;
    int counter =0;
    while(counter < 10){
    grade = input.nextInt();
    total = total+grade;

    average = total/10;
    system.out.println("your average is" +average);

    Scanner and System should begin with uppercase characters.

    In regards to the actual problem, it could be an environment path error. Check
    the execution path (should be an option in the project properties menu). You
    have defined main correctly, so it is not a program problem. If the directory and
    paths seem ok, try running the code on another IDE (if you have one that is), if
    you still get the same problem, try Google in regards to your particular environment
    of choice.

    It seems to me that you need a package statement.
    Before your import statement try adding this line

    package javaapplication1;
