What is the error you are getting? Is it a compiler error? runtime? what EXACTLY are you seeing that makes you think you have an error?

also note: it would help others greatly if you properly formatted your code. Remember, when asking for help, your job is to make it as easy as possible for others to do so.

So I can't read that. You should always try and fix the first error it gives first. Your screenshot shows there is an error that has rolled off the top.

It's better to post the text than a screenshot in any case. Please read this as to why.

I now see that is it pointing you to this line:



That isn't valid java. What are you trying to do there?

I don't think


will work either.

Again...I ask you...what are you TRYING to do on this line?

Here is another hint: look at the NEXT line after this and compare...

I think i see what you are saying.

cc setdollars (dollars);
cc setExchangrate (exchangerate)'

it was to set the dollars

and the line after to set the exchange rate.

Programming requires you to be precise. The compiler is unforgiving. You should get in the habit of being VERY careful what you type.

Neither of the above lines is valid java. The second isn't even what you have in your code. You have this:
not this
the first says "call the setExchangerate method on the object referred to by the cc variable, and pass it the value stored in the exchange rate variable". The second will throw a compiler error.
