You can't put a method inside another method.

Probably you didn't think you were trying to do that, but the inconsistent nesting of the braces in that code makes it hard to tell. If you're using an IDE, then ask it to reformat your code so the nesting makes sense.

Check your indentation, which is incorrect. You may have {} out of balance. Following an indentation convention can prevent all sorts of errors. Also you should write backwards, which can improve your indentation.

You’re welcome

As Randall Twede has suggested, writing backwards is the result of experience, and this is the sort of place where you can share experience.
