Ok, and what's the part you need help with exactly?
Note that nobody is going to write the program for you, nor should you expect guaranteed response times from the volunteers that visit this forum.

First of all you describe what you want to do, then you tell us what problems you are facing. Merely asking for help, without describing your problem won't work ( neither here , nor in real life).
Also choose a proper subject. Subject like "help", "code", won't work

it is impossible for anyone here to give you meaningful help at this point. We have no way of knowing where to start.

Do you have the jdk installed, or do you need help with that?
Do you know how to write, compile, and run a java program (like a Hello, world program), or do you need help with that?
Do you know how to start your current project, or do you need help with that?

Even if the answer to all the above questions is "yes", we still have NO IDEA what your program is supposed to do.


Generally:
start by NOT writing code, but by writing in ENGLISH what your code is supposed to do. Only when you can explain to a ten year old child what exactly needs to happen should you write a line of code.

When you start writing code, only write a few lines at a time before you re-compile and test.

Only work on one part at a time.

Comment your code as you write.

Use well named variables and methods - variable names like "theNumber" are worthless.

Each method should do exactly one thing.
