    For those who are reading this message.I'm a beginners at this java assignment.I'm struggling at understanding it.If anyones willing to solve the code and to explain how you solved it.Im all ears and eyes.I looked all over websites and it is hard to find someone who is willing to teach me how to solve this code.I made a ArrayListExample and a Boxclass.I get some errors in the code.Someone taught me at the college and they were too in hurry to explain.If you have the time i have the time to look this over and to learn it.

    Please place code between code tags (see BBcodes below for more info). And you didn't explain what problems you were having and whether they were, compiler problems, exceptions being thrown, or logic problems.

    And do provide attachments or images. We won't look at them.

    Regards,
    Jim

    Sorry for that guys.I'm having a hard time posting pictures where it can get the whole assignment.I had to copy and paste it so the code can be seen.Not every website allows large files.I feel like people are lazy to copy and paste the code to Netbeans.It's that simple or is it a problem.I can pay for a tutor so everyone can be happy.geez

    --- Update ---

    I'm not asking to cheat on this assignment.I'm asking everyone to show me how where the errors were and why i can't fix them.I have a disability which causes me to not grasp info that is hard.It takes me months before it grasps.I have a ADD disabilty.NO worries i can find someone who wants the money.Sorry for those who miss out.Lazy
