The question is required to use arrays to display what the user has entered when they select choice 4. I'm also pulling my hair out figuring how to use method call in my code. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: the current code is working, just don't know how to use array. Also, im using jcreator

"The question is required to use arrays to display what the user has entered when they select choice 4 "
@above
Do you want to display all the previously entered choices by a user when he finally presses 4.?

sorry for the late reply, my computer went bust few days ago.
@adarshcu, yes, it is required to displayed what the user has previously entered (principle, days, rate, interest and total), after the user choose option 4 before exiting the program

I don't think it'l be wise to display all the previously selected values. What can be done is to display the last chosen option and the values. Since you are implementing a do-while loop, the number of times the loop is run is left to the user , he may run the loop ten times or twenty times, which is known only at runtime. One way to do this is to encapsulate all the values into an object and create an array of objects . My real point is why would you want to display all the values that the user has entered till now .? Is it really required ?

right, i just asked my teacher about this and he says at least 10 of the previous entries must be shown..
