    //create a Scanner object to read input
    Scanner keyboard=new Scanner (System.in);

    //Declare variable for loop counter and initialize
    for (int count = 0; count < 12; count++)

    //Prompt and input hours of sunshine for each month
    System.out.print("Enter hours of sunshine for "+month[count]+" " );

    why the do-while loop wont work?
    Please explain what happens?
    Does it loop when it should not loop?
    Does it not loop when it should loop?
    Try debugging the code by printing out the values of the variables used to control the loop:
    count and sunshine[count] so you can see what the computer sees. That will help you understand why the code does what it does.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
