Hello. I just about have this program figured out. However, I am still having a problem getting the display to print out just right. I am pretty close. I am not sure how to add a text statemenet ("is safe") to true and ("is out") to false. Could anyone offer any suggestions or insight. Thanks again.
Here is how I am trying to get the display to look when the program runs:
Team 1 is up to bat:
Jason Crisp (average = 300.0) is out.
Rusty Johnson (average = 170.0) is safe.
Team 2 is up to bat:
Jason Harpham (average = 210.0) is safe.
Kevin McArthur (average = 375.0) is out.
Here is my code:

You don't want to print out the retrun from isSafe. You want to use the return from isSafe in an "if" to determine what to print.

Look at the ternary operator in Java. It's a condensed version of an if-else statement.

That is not a good example for someone learning java. Standard "if" statements are a better way for people starting out.
 
I knew that guy would be trouble! Thanks tiny ad!
