Howdie Partners:

I have the following code and get ye olde ';' Exception error.

Please help me!

import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
import java.util.Scanner;
public class Triangle
public static void main (String [] args)
double num1, num2, num3; // input values
double total, perimeter;
//get side lengths
Scanner rdr = new Scanner(System.in);

// Define perimeter
perimeter = (num1 + num2 + num3);

// Input the two numbers
System.out.println("Input your first number.");
num1 = console.nextDouble();

System.out.println("Input your second number.");
int num2 = console.nextDouble();

System.out.println("Input your third number.");
int num3 = console.nextDouble();

// Determine the total of the first two numbers
int total = (num1 + num2);
int answer = Integer.parseInt(triangle);

If (answer)
(total > num3 = true);
System.out.print("The perimeter is " + perimeter);

Else (answer)
(total < num3 = false);
System.out.print("The data is incorrect.");

// Show output in a dialogue box
Thank you.

Java is case sensitive and all keywords are lower case.

Welcome to the Ranch, Michelle. Please give more details of the errors you are getting; I am pretty sure (as Joanne has hinted) that your code as shown won't compile or run so you can get an Exception. If quoting code, please use ctrl-C ctrl-V and don't copy it by hand, in case you introduce yet more errors.
