Hi,

I've been trying to write my first code ever..

I think I somehow managed to do it but there is a compiler error and I can't figure out what it is , it seems correct to me so you might help me correct the error.

The program suppose to ask the user for 5 numers and then it print the maximum value and the minumum value.

Here is what I wrote:

the wrrors are in these linesCode:package firstA; import java.util.Scanner ; class FirstA { public static void main(String[] args) { int a, b, c, d, e, max = 0, min = 0; Scanner keyboard = new Scanner(System.in); System.out.println ("Enter five numbers") ; a = keyboard.netxtInt (); b = keyboard.netxtInt (); c = keyboard.netxtInt (); d = keyboard.netxtInt (); e = keyboard.netxtInt (); if (a > b && a > c && a > d && a > e) max = a ; else if (b > a && b > c && b > d && b > e) max = b ; else if (d > a && d > b && d > c && d > e) max = d ; else if (c > a && c > b && c > d && c > e) max = c ; else if (d > a && d > b && d > c && d > e) max = d ; else if (e > a && e > b && e > c && e > d) max = e ; System.out.println("the maximum number is" + max); if (a < b && a < c && a < d && a < e) min = a ; else if (b < a && b < c && b < d && b < e) min = b ; else if (d < a && d < b && d < c && d < e) min = d ; else if (c < a && c < b && c < d && c < e) min = c ; else if (d < a && d < b && d < c && d < e) min = d ; else if (e < a && e < b && e < c && e < d) min = e ; System.out.println("the minimum number is" + min); } }

a = keyboard.netxtInt ();

b = keyboard.netxtInt ();

c = keyboard.netxtInt ();

d = keyboard.netxtInt ();

e = keyboard.netxtInt ();

PS. I know there maybe another way to do it but I want to do it this way, and please exuse the mess because I am totaly new to this forum.
