Hello,

Stuck on one line of code, tried everything but could not make any progress. Please help. Thanks in advance. The problem is on line 39 which is:

slant_height = SphericalCone1.getSlantHeight( radius, cone_height) ; TheNetBeans IDE6.8 displays the error message:

Can not find symbol: class SphericalCone

But SpericalCone class compiles ok and is the same directory as this program.

The text at the beginning of this window, said NOT to use code tags, because Java code will highlighted. Hope I got that right.

```
import java.util.Scanner;
import java.util.InputMismatchException;

//

System.out.print("Enter Spherical Cone Height: ");
cone_height = keybd.nextDouble();
