The first of four errors. "cannot find symbol" means that java tried to look something up and could not find it. The error message in the console says it is the symbol "al" on line 57. So it could not find where you delcared "al".

when you get the error, does the compiler message point to the closing parenthesis?

(the above '^' might not line up correctly to the ')' - but it is supposed to)

if you do see that from the compiler, remove the closing parenthesis
