    Default syntax error in if else condition

    Dear Java users,
    I don't have computer science background but I have knowledge about programs and have been using the MatLAB for on and off project. I have knowledge about the loops and conditions basics but not familiar with the syntax errors in java.
    Trying to write a simple program using if, else if condition and it gives error on line 18 please check below:

    I will appreciate your help!

    import java.util.Scanner;

    public class PracticeIfStatement {
    public static void main(String[] args) {

    Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);

    try {

    System.out.println("Enter your age:");
    int age = input.nextInt();

    if (age > 0 && age <=10 );{
    System.out.println("Your age is from 0 to 10");
    //18th line (error syntax error on token)
    else if (age >=11 && age <=20){
    System.out.println("your age is from 11 to 20");

    else if ( age >=20 && age <=30) {
    System.out.println("your age is from 20 to 30");

    else {
    System.out.println("Your are above 30");
    catch(Exception e) {
    System.out.println("You can not enter Zero");
