hey again i hate to be a bother but i still can't get this to work
my driver program(the second code) won't call the add method or the minus method to subtract input
i tried to do this in my code below and have failed
if you have any suggestions please i really need to make this work thank you for any help the class(first code) and the driver program are below

public class Money

	private int dollars;//instance variables

Didn't we explain to you in the last thread how to use code tags? Under 'Go Advanced' there is a button that says code tags. Use it. Also add [CODE=Java] to the first part.

i did what you said but it still doesn't work
could you please just help me with my code now then ill fix my code tag skills later
i've tried so hard to make this code work and i still can't fix my driver program
thank you

First, you should access the static methods (add, minus) in a static way, like Money.add( ... ) and Money.minus ( ... ).

Accessing a static method on an object (ok) is not supposed to change the object, because it is a static method, you don't have to instantiate a class to call it.

What you return is not taken by ok to create an object. You should do:

ok = Money.add(good, bad);

And it should work.

thanks very much but can you give me a suggestion for the regular add and minus methods i tried to do

this.add2(bad)

but the program didnt compile
thank you so much for your help

The code tags are just the following:

for the first one and the last one is exactly what gets pasted in there when you click the button. So all you're adding is the =Java.

And you didn't set your previous thread to solved. While I don't mind helping you, these are both things that you should be doing out of courtesy.

On to the programming, I can come back and give you some more help tomorrow. For now, you might want to consider that "cents" can be much greater than 200. It looks like your code in the add method will not work if cents is > 200. (Lets say you had 0 dollars, 200 cents. Your code would convert that to 1 dollar, 100 cents - but it should convert it to 2 dollars.)[CODE=Java] for the first one and the last one is exactly what gets pasted in there when you click the button.

I looked at your add2 method and your add method. They both look like they will compile. What error are you getting? Post the entire error & your code again in code tags

Actually, because javaman is only adding two Money objects, it is impossible to get to 200 cents (assuming that each Money object has a maximum of 99 cents).

However, the minus methods are still wrong. As I said in the last thread, what happens if you have $5.20 minus $1.90?
