    Default my code didnt perform its function

    i wrote a simple code which compiled but failed to actually work
    this is wat it looks like

    // This is a simple code that code that adds x + y = z using the values x =4, y = 2
     
    class Arithmetic {
     
       int x;
       short y;
       int z;
     
          /*Do the computations*/   
     
     
       public static void main(String args[]) {
         int x = 4;
        int y = 2;
        int z = x + y;//compute z
     
            /* use integer values in place of x and y*/
             System.out.println("z = x + y");
             System.out.println("The value of z");
    }

    Please define what you mean by works...this could be quite a few things. My first guess is that you want it to print z?
    System.out.println(z);

    wat i meant by it didnt work is dat it was supposed to add the values the of x and y and print it as a new value for z

    Please do not start a second thread that asks the exact same question you just posted in this thread...I have removed your other post.

    Next, see my post above. Printing things between quotes treats the value as a string...if you wish to print the actual value, send System.out.println() the actual value
    System.out.println("z");//print the string 'z'
    System.out.println(z);//prints the value of z
