    Default My program wont print the sum of the rows in a two-dimensional array

    This is what I need:

    In this laboratory you will use a two-dimensional array to tally

    the results of a political poll. Krook and Leyer are running for
    Mayor of Slimetown. A sample of voters were polled on their
    preference. The input file PROG4IN.TXT contains one line for
    each voter polled. The line contains the name of the favored
    candidate and the age of the voter. You will use an array having
    two rows and three columns to tally the voters by favored candidate
    and age group. The three age groups are 18-29, 30-49, and 50-99.
    You will print a report in the format shown:

    Candidate 18-29 30-49 50-99 Total
    Krook 2 4 6 12
    Leyer 3 3 2 8

    And this is what I have:

    import java.io.*;
    public class Table
    private int[][] table;
    private String[] names;
    private int[] rowsum;
    int row, col;

    public Table() {
    table = new int[2][3];
    names = new String[2];
    names [0] = "Krook";
    names [1] = "Leyer";
    rowsum = new int[2];


    public void tally(String name, int age) {

    if((age >= 18) && (age <= 29)){
    table[0][0] += 1;
    }else if((age >= 30) && (age <=49)){
    table[0][1] += 1;
    }else if((age >= 50) && (age <= 99)){
    table[0][2] += 1;
    if((age >= 18) && (age <= 29)){
    table[1][0] += 1;
    }else if((age >= 30) && (age <=49)){
    table[1][1] += 1;
    }else if((age >= 50) && (age <= 99)){
    table[1][2] += 1;

    for(row = 0; row < 2; row++){
    rowsum[row] = 0;
    for(col = 0; col < 3; ++col)
    rowsum[row] += table[row][col];

    public void report()
    System.out.printf("Candidate 18-29 30-49 50-99 Total");
    System.out.println(table[0][0] + table[0][1] + table[0][2]);
    System.out.println(table[1][0] + table[1][1] + table[1][2]);
    System.out.printf("%d%n", rowsum[0]);
    System.out.printf("%d%n", rowsum[1]);

    This is main program:

    import java.io.*;
    import java.util.*;

    public class Program4
    public static void main(String[] args)
    Scanner infile;
    Table table;
    String name;
    int age;

    table = new Table();

    infile = new Scanner(new FileReader("PROG4IN.TXT"));
    }catch(IOException err){
    infile = null;

    name = infile.next();
    age = infile.nextInt();
    table.tally(name, age);



    Everytime I run the program, just the labels appears but not the sum of the tables.

    Please format your code using highlight tags, as such:

    [highlight=Java]//your code here[/highlight]

    Unformatted code is very trying to read, especially after a long day of school.

    Could you also please provide an example output and specifically note the code that is responsible for the row addition, as well as the display, so that I can more rapidly troubleshoot?
    Use highlight tags to help others help you!

    [highlight=Java]Your prettily formatted code goes here[/highlight]

    Using these tags makes your code formatted, and helps everyone answer your questions more easily!

    Wanna hear something funny?

    Me too.
