Edited 3 Years Ago by Nick Evan: Fixed formatting

That is because you haven't defined such a constructor in your Lottery class.

Come on you could have figure that out. Put some effort into it

i tried to make lotteryNumber private but it says already defined in the class. so i am stuck

That has nothing to do with trying to use a class constructor that does not exist, which is what you are doing right here

Lottery lot = new Lottery(userNumbers);

If you make changes to the code, repost it using [code]

[/code] tags, because it's just a mess with all the formatting removed.
