hey, im having a little trouble with my compiler and need a little help determining the output of a program. I need to determine the output for the following code sets when x is 9 and y is 11, and when x is 11 and y is 9. I tried to figure it out on paper but im new to java and struggling a bit.

heres the code:



if (x < 10 )
if (y > 10)
System.out.println( "*****" );
else
System.out.println( "#####" );
System.out.println( "$$$$$");





if (x < 10 )
[
if (y > 10)
System.out.println( "*****" );
]
else
[
System.out.println( "#####" );
System.out.println( "$$$$$");
]

What problems are you having with the compiler? Is it throwing a syntax error of some kind, or is it not able to find a particular file, or...?

I'm with MCory... You should give a bit more info. What is the error message(s) displayed and what is the piece of code supposed to do? Also posting a bit more code can be helpful - try posting the whole class/file if it's not too long.

I think the obvious lesson of this code is that the "if" and "else" commands only control one line after test unless you put brackets around multiple commands. Other than that do you really want me to give you the output? You won't learn anything if I do, plus I've already just pointed out the core of this lesson.


For Example:



if(some test = true)
This line is executed if the test is true;
This line is executed no matter what.


if(some test = true)
[
this line is executed if the test is true;
this line also is executed only if the test is true;
]
