What I meant to say was, hmmm It's hard to explain.. OK, i thought that "sum" was some official keyword in java.. But it's not. So when i want to add , subtract, divide and then multiply 2 different numbers. I'm looking at my textbook, that gives me the example of adding two numbers. I saw sum = number1 + number2. So in my infinite ignorant trainee wisdom, I wondered where is the official term for multiplying, or dividing or subtracting? I did not see it so I posted here.. I later learned, that the word "sum" could be named "fizwig"; java would not care.. It's only interested in the operators of number + number2 or number 1 / number 2 or number1 * number2 etc etc.. And for us trainees this turns the light bulb on (In other words to add numbers you can use fizwig for the terms but to accomplish the results / * + and - are the puppies you need to know) We trainees need this type of common man explanations to learn this brand new world. I struggled for several hours a day studying trying to grasp this concept.
12 years ago, I use to run a BBS.. Writing DOS batchfiles like if exist, goto, if errorlevel, :label, etc i thought was tough.. But this is harder.
C'mon now! Gimme a break!
