    Default Public class Sales Tax error

    I am using jGrasp for Java programming. I am trying to key in public class SalesTax and it throws an error for public class.

    import java.util.Scanner; // Needed for the Scanner class /** This program calculates the total price which includes sales tax.*/ public class SalesTax { public static void main(String[] args)
    // Identifier Declarations final double TAX_RATE = 0.055; double price; double tax; double total; String item; // Create a Scanner object to read from the keyboard. Scanner keyboard = new Scanner(System.in); // Display prompts and get input. System.out.print("Item description: ");
    item = keyboard.nextLine();
    System.out.print("Item price: $");
    price = keyboard.nextDouble(); // Perform the calculations. tax = price + TAX_RATE; total = price + tax; // Display the results.
    System.out.print(item + " $");
    System.out.print("Tax $");
    System.out.print("Total $");
    System.out.println(total); } }
