we don't really hand out answers here. We also prefer to use the forums, so that someone else can come along later and learn from what you did. taking it off-line (i.e. via emails or private messages) defeats the purpose of a forum.

But folks will bend over backwards to help you here.

so, what do you have so far? can you do anything? can you write/compile/run a simple 'hello world' program?

And welcome to JavaRanch

Please don't just write "Need Help . . . " as your thread names: read this FAQ.

Look at the method signature for the "main" method, you can see it has a String array. These get passed as command line arguments.
The number classes (Integer, Double etc) can all parse String values.
It is easy to do arithmetic with primitives (don't forget about the default return type!)
There is a very common way to as the System to print out a line of text onto the console.

Any good Java book will have examples or try it yourself and if it doesn't work, post your code and I am sure people will give more pointers.

J.
ps I've tried to give you some clues.
