    Default "Can not find symbol" when I use int and scanner

    package javaapplication1;
    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class Scan {
        public static void main(String args[])
            Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);
            int = a, b;
            System.out.print("A = ");
            a = scan.nextInt();
            System.out.print("B = ");
            b = scan.nextInt();
            System.out.print(a + " + " + b + " = " + (a + b));

    When programme works, I want describe the "A" and "B", and programme should give me result of "A+B" but It says "Can not find symbol" at "int = a, b;" 's next to.
    Sorry for my bad English : D

    Can you copy the full text of the error message and paste it here so we can see what symbol the compiler can not find a declaration for?

    The text in the posted image is too small to read.

     int = a, b;
    There should not be an = sign when trying to declare variables.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
