Java Java Basics Perfecting the Prototype Conditional ints

I don't understand the question. What does it want?

i seem to be doing everything correct but it say .class is expected. The question is "Add an if statement to see if there are less than 4 people. Then write out to the console, β€œYour table is ready” My code: int numberOfPeople = 3; if (int < 4) { console.printf("Your table is ready ") }

int numberOfPeople = 3;

Hi Baimurat. I'll print out your code here for ease of reading:

int numberOfPeople = 3; 
if (int < 4) { 
    console.printf("Your table is ready ") 

You have 2 errors here:

  • in the if statement, you want to check that the value (numberOfPeople) of the variable is less than 4, not the type (int) of the variable. So you want to use the name of the variable:
if (numberOfPeople < 4) {
     // your code here
  • you forgot to add a semi-colon at the end of your print statement:
console.printf("Your table is ready");

Hope this helps :)

Thanks man, that helped a lot, have a great day!

You're welcome. Have a great day too!
