public void divide(int a, int b) {

try {

int c = a / b;

} catch (Exception e) {

System.out.print("Exception ");

} finally {

System.out.println("Finally");

Hi hassel

What i can see from the code is

the variables a and b are method variables
can say local so they dont get any default value
and
if we try to use

method variables before
initialisation ie before assigning them any value
we get a compiler error

The above code will not compile


I hope this helps!!!

The variables a and b are local to the method, but they are parameters. They need to be passed values in order for the method to be called.

This will not compile because it's only a method definition. If it were inside a class, then it would compile (assuming the missing brace were added).

To get output, you will need a main method that creates an instance of the class and calls this method. The output will depend on what int values you pass.
