Hi - I am a newbie - so I hate to ask for help, but your site has been so useful even before I joined, so I hope you will have pity on me. I am doing a java program using 2D arrays. It covers 4 quarters of sales across 6 divisions of a company.....with the sales being user entered. I am supposed to make a list of the sales entered, the increase/decrease by qtr per div, total for quarter among all divs, total company increase/decrease, avg sales per div, and highest sales per qtr , and whole company all qtrs..... I am fine doing the whole company stuff, but seperating the divisions is proving to be a challenge. My code is below. I haven't gotten all of the whole company stuff yet, but you can see where I am.... The totalDivSales, and divSales variables are my attempt at seperating the divisions - please help if you can. Thanks!

import java.util.Scanner;
import java.text.DecimalFormat;


public class QtrSalesArray 
{
	public static void main(String[] args) 
	{
	final int DIVS = 2;
	final int QTRS = 4;
	double totalSales = 0.0;
	double totalDivSales = 0.0;
	
	double [][] sales = new double [DIVS][QTRS];
	
		
	Scanner keyboard = new Scanner(System.in);
	
	System.out.println("Please answer the following questions and this program will perform multiple calculations for you.");
	
	for (int div=0;div<DIVS; div++)
	{
		for (int qtr=0;qtr<QTRS; qtr++)
		{
			System.out.println("Enter sales for Division "+ (div+1) + ", Quarter "+ (qtr+1)+": $");
			sales[div][qtr] = keyboard.nextDouble();
		}
		System.out.println();
	}
	
	
	for (int div=0; div<DIVS; div++)
	{
		for (int qtr=0;qtr<QTRS; qtr++)
		{
			totalSales+=sales[div][qtr];
		}
	}
	
	DecimalFormat dollar = new DecimalFormat("#,##0.00");
	
	System.out.println("YOU ENTERED SALES AS:\n");
	for (int div=0;div<DIVS; div++)
	{
		System.out.println("DIVISION "+ (div+1));
		System.out.println("------------------------------------");
	
		for (int qtr=0;qtr<QTRS; qtr++)
			{
				System.out.println("Quarter "+ (qtr+1)+":\t$" +dollar.format(sales[div][qtr]));
				totalDivSales+=sales[div][qtr];
			}
			System.out.println();
						
	}
	System.out.println("The total sales by division are $ " + dollar.format(totalDivSales));
	System.out.println("The total sales for the company are $ " + dollar.format(totalSales));
	}
}

Almost forgot - here's the output so far.

Please answer the following questions and this program will perform multiple calculations for you.
Enter sales for Division 1, Quarter 1: $
20
Enter sales for Division 1, Quarter 2: $
20
Enter sales for Division 1, Quarter 3: $
20
Enter sales for Division 1, Quarter 4: $
20

Enter sales for Division 2, Quarter 1: $
20
Enter sales for Division 2, Quarter 2: $
20
Enter sales for Division 2, Quarter 3: $
20
Enter sales for Division 2, Quarter 4: $
20

YOU ENTERED SALES AS:

DIVISION 1
------------------------------------
Quarter 1: $20.00
Quarter 2: $20.00
Quarter 3: $20.00
Quarter 4: $20.00

DIVISION 2
------------------------------------
Quarter 1: $20.00
Quarter 2: $20.00
Quarter 3: $20.00
Quarter 4: $20.00

The total sales by division are $ 160.00
The total sales for the company are $ 160.00

Thank you. It's closer. I appreciate the tidbit! Here's what i got - if you're curious.....
