    Default I need help adding a ratio into a String

    How do i add a ratio into this program. it needs to find the ratio from lowercase to uppercase.

    import java.util.Scanner;

    public class Strings
    public static void main(String[] args)

    // Set up a Scanner object for keyboard input.
    Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);

    // Set up Strings for lower and upper case letters.
    String Upper = "";

    String Lower = "";

    // Print a line of text.
    System.out.print("Please give a string: ");

    // Set up String variable to hold keyboard input.
    String x = in.next();
    int z = x.length();

    for(int y = 0; y < z; y++)

    char w = x.charAt(y);
    Upper = Upper + w + " ";
    else if(Character.isLowerCase(x.charAt(y)))
    char w = x.charAt(y);
    Lower = Lower + w + " ";

    {System.out.println("\nThe Lowercase characters are: " + Lower);}
    {System.out.println("\nThe Uppercase characters are: " + Upper);}
