    Welcome to the forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code in code or highlight tags and other useful info for new members.

    Please post your code correctly using code or highlight tags per the above link.

    If you're getting error messages, either from the compiler or while running, post the complete text of those messages. If no messages or you can't even get that far, then explain why you think there's a problem, ask specific questions.

    It works for me. What errors are you getting? probably to do with your IDE or something.

    Not sure what error you are getting. What does it say when you try to run the program?

    Hi neoanderson !
    you can check your java file name and name of class. file name of java must be the same name of class
