    Default Need help with Code

    I need help writing a program that reads to positive integers, one at a time, in 5 attempts.
    I must leave one attempt to guess the second integer. So if the user does not input the correct answer by the fourth attempt, they can not get the first integer right.

    This is the code I have so far.
    package readtwopostiveinteger;
    import java.util.*;
    import java.io.*;
    public class ReadTwoPostiveInteger {
        private static final int numAttempts=5;
        private static int posInt;
        public static void main(String[] args) {
         int i = 0;
         System.out.println("Enter two postive integers,one at a time, # of Attemps Remaining:"+numAttempts);
         Scanner keyb = new Scanner(System.in);
         for(i=1; i<=numAttempts-1; i++) {
            try { posInt = keyb.nextInt();{
            if (posInt>0)
            if (posInt<=0) throw new InputMismatchException();          
            catch(InputMismatchException ime){
            System.out.println("Your Input was not a positive integer");
            if (i== numAttempts) System.out.println ("sorry");
            else System.out.println("Enter a postive integer,#of attemps remaining:" +numAttempts);

    Can you explain what your problem is? Do you get errors? Please post the full text of the messages.

    What happens when the program executes? Copy and paste here the console for when you execute the program. Add some comments to it explaining what the problem is.

    The formatting of the code (the locations of the }s) make the code hard to read. The } should not be on the same line after a statement. The } should line up vertically beneath the line with the pairing {.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
