You're calling PrintStream's println() method and passing in the return value of the return_Number() method. However, the return type of the return_Number() method is void, which is why it's not valid to pass the result of this method as an argument to the println() method - the return_Number() method doesn't yield a return value.

The return type of both the methods that are called in the println statement are void, So it doesnot return anything and thus the error.
