Read the message: You are calling the super() constructor with arguments that do not match any declared constructor in the parent class.

Read the message: You are calling the super() constructor with arguments that do not match any declared constructor in the parent class.

That pretty much sums it up.

For a more thorough explanation--

// somewhere in product...

// only Constructor for product defined

// takes a double, String, double, double, and double
 Product(double item,String title,double year, double stock, double price )
class Movie extends Product
{
private double reStockingFee;

public Movie(String dvdTitle, double dvdItemNumber, double dvdStock, double dvdPrice, double reStockingFee)
{

// calling Product constructor String, double, double, double

// you forgot to provide a double argument before the String!

// compiler cannot locate this non-existant 4-arg constructor in Product!
super( dvdTitle, dvdItemNumber, dvdStock, dvdPrice);

I am a little confused by what you mean: #
#
// you forgot to provide a double argument before the String!"

Compare the arguments that you are using in the super() call to those in the Product constructor. They must match in type, order, and number. Yours don't.

I am so very lost in where you are talking about, any other ways of explaining where to look to make the changes so it will work?

I am so very lost in where you are talking about, any other ways of explaining where to look to make the changes so it will work?

Alex did a good job of explaining it above. Product is the superclass. Movie is the subclass. Inside your Movie constructor, you have this line:

super( dvdTitle, dvdItemNumber, dvdStock, dvdPrice);

That means "Look in my superclass for a constructor that takes four arguments." Movie's superclass is Product. Product has one constructor. It's this one:

Product(double item,String title,double year, double stock, double price )

The above constructor takes five arguments. You've passed it four arguments. As Ezzaral mentioned, the number of arguments need to match, in addition to the argument types. What's year supposed to be? You haven't specified with this call:

super( dvdTitle, dvdItemNumber, dvdStock, dvdPrice);

So if I make them the same it would work?

Well, try it and find out. Don't be afraid to experiment. You at least won't get THAT error anymore if you make them the same, but you may have other errors. It is something you need to fix if you are going to keep that line in the program.

Do I need that line? With the Re-Stocking Fee? I am getting so confused right now I swear I am about in tears now I only have 2 days to have this done.

Post your updated code with Java-style code tags, which will add line numbers, then refer to the specific line number you are referring to. I don't know what line you are speaking about and I don't know if you have changed your code. For certain, you need to change or delete the line of code referred to earlier in this thread.

[code=JAVA] // paste code here. Line #'s are added.

I have changed my code, and it is working but sadly it is not formatting my decimal correctly.
