    heads = ;//unsure of how to count frequence. HELP ON THIS PART
    tails = ;//unsure of how to count frequencies. HELP ON THIS PART!
    
    percentHeads = ((double)heads / 8) * 100; //gets percentage of heads
    percentTails = ((double)tails / 8) * 100; //gets percentage of tails
    
    System.out.println("Number of heads " + heads);
    System.out.println("Number of tails " + tails);
    System.out.println("Percent heads: " + percentHeads);
    System.out.println("Percent tails: " + percentTails);
    
    
    System.out.println("Press any key to exit program.");
    String junk;
    junk = SavitchIn.readLine();
    
  }  
}

My assignment:
The user inputs either an 'h' for heads or 't' for tails for eight tosses,
then the program will print out the total number and percentages of head and tails. I am supposed to use an called increment operator to count, but I looked online everywhere and couldn't find out how to use it. I think I am doing this right, but I am not sure. We are supposed to use SavitchIn.java if you are wondering.

Was this code provided to you and you have to add the functionality that you state, or is this all your code? If this is all your code, do you know what an array is?
