Given a non-empty string and an int n, return a new string where the char at index n has been removed. The value of n will be a valid index of a char in the original string

solution:

[Added code tags - see UseCodeTags for more details]

I need help converting String str into an Array so I can eliminate a letter from the array at the desired index.
Please.

You can't access a String object as if it were an array.
The String class does offer a method to return a String object's value as a char array, though.
Still, because Strings are immutable you can't just manipulate that array and expect the String object's value to refelct that change accordingly.
So you'd need a way to create a new String object based on the manipulated char array.
Why don't you have a look at the String API and see if you can figure out how to solve this.
Note that there are other ways to go about this.

That's one way to go, but it's by no means the most clear or efficient one

Read Jelle's posts, because he's absolutely right:
1. You can do it that way.
2. You should read the API for java.lang.String (←click) because you may work out a much better way. (Big hint: substring() is your friend).
