    Do you have a list of the steps the program must do to solve the problem?
    If not start there. Work on the details of what each step needs to do.

    If you do have the list, start at the first one: code it, compile it, test it, fix the problems and redo until it works
    Then move to the second step in the list and repeat the above.

    When you have problems, post the full text of the error messages, the code and your questions.

    Be sure to wrap your code with code tags:
    [code=java]
    YOUR CODE GOES HERE
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Do you know how to declare variables?
    Do you know how to assign values to them?
    Do you know how to take in input from the user?
    Do you know how to do math operations? How would you go about calculating the average of 5 numbers using pencil and paper? Translate that process into code.
