Hi,I got it from www.javaprogrammingworld.com

class subover
{

float method(float a,byte c)
{

return (a*c)/(c+a);
}
public static void main(String args[])
{
subover sub=new subover();
System.out.println(sub.method(2,1)); //here i am getting error method(float,byte) cannot be applied tomethod(int,int)

}
}

while assigning float a=2; and byte c=1, it's taking the value by an implicit cast.why this cant be done while passing the arguments?
i am guessing it deals with boxing ,widening concept.

please explain me this...
