Hello Everyone!
I have a homework assignment due and I am having a problem with an compiling it to get an output.
This is my first and only Java class.

Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?
Thanks in advance.

Request Description:Write the program in Java (without a graphical user interface) using a loan amount of $200,000 with an interest rate of 5.75% and a 30 year term.
Display the mortgage payment amount and then list the loan balance and interest paid for each payment over the term of the loan.
If the list would scroll off the screen, use loops to display a partial list, hesitate, and then display more of the list.

What errors do you get and at which lines. Post the errors you get.

Also if it runs what results do you get what you were expecting?

Also the tab character is this:
\t

System.out.println("aaa\tbbbbb")

and for new line:
\n
System.out.println("aaa\nbbbbb")

Try running the above just for testing

Okay...
worked on it a little bit and now I get no errors(using Textpad/BlueJ).

Still cannot get it to run.
Now I get :
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: main

I am lost on this being a noob and all.

The result is supposed to be what is listed in the comments,javaAddict.

I think the professor wants them listed in columns(like a group of four).

Lemme know what you think.
Thanks for the quick response, as well.

You need to write a main method in which you will execute the code you wrote. Right now you have only a class with methods. You need to call these methods inside the main

OK...
I did what you told me and now I am getting an error on Line 93 in TextPad.

java:93: class interface or enum expected

Tool completed with exit code 1

I am bleary eyed.
It is 4AM here in the states.

I dunno...
Maybe I will try agian later today.

Thanks, javaAddict.

Edited 3 Years Ago by mike_2000_17: Fixed formatting

I told you to write a main method in which you will call your other methods. You wrote this:

public class Main {
public class McBrideCR1{

The above doesn't mean anything. Surely this is not the first program you wrote. Check your notes. Writing a main method is the first thing you learn.
