    Default Help with Java word problem

    Im really stuck on this probably easy word problem to you guys but I just started so Im fairly new to all of this

    Here is the problem, Meadowdale Dairy Farm sells organic brown eggs to local customers. They charge $3.25 for a dozen eggs, or 45 cents for individual eggs that are not part of a dozen. Write a class that prompts a user for the number of eggs in the order and then display the amount owed with a full explanation. For example, typical output might be, “You ordered 27 eggs. That’s 2 dozen at $3.25 per dozen and 3 loose eggs at 45 cents each for a total of $7.85.” Save the class as Eggs.java

    Here is what I have so far
    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class Eggs {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
    final double PRICEOFSINGLEGGS = 0.45;
    final double PRICEOFDOZENEGGS = 3.25;
    Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
    int eggs;

    System.out.print("Enter number of eggs needed >> ");
    eggs = input.nextInt();
    int dozeneggs = eggs/12;
    int remainder = eggs%12;
    System.out.println("The number entered was " + eggs);
