    Default Really simple program problem

    Hey guys, I just got back into java after taking a class on it in high school 2 years ago. I'm trying to make this simple program that tells you in how many hours you'll reach your desired level in an MMORPG. So far my code looks like this:

    import java.util.Scanner;
     
    public class enter {
        public static void main(String[] args) {
     
     
            double ExpToLevel;
            double ExpPerHour;
            double time;
     
            Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
     
            System.out.println("Enter your experience until level up");
    		ExpToLevel = input.nextInt();
     
    		System.out.println("How much experience do you get an hour?");
    		ExpPerHour = input.nextInt();
     
     
          ExpToLevel / ExpPerHour = time;
     
          System.out.println("You'll reach your level in " + time);
     
        }
    }

    It's telling me the equation is an unexpected type. How do I fix this problem?

    You have it @rse-backward. Statement goes on the right and assignment on the left of the equals sign.
