I need help with my java code

My assignment is to make a main method for three methods, this is the first one. Nothing pops up after i run it and i need help with figuring out what is missing.

code:

public class Main {

public static void main(String[] args) {

}
    public static double getArea(int length, int width) 
       { 
          return length * width; 

}

}

It's not clear what course and lesson you are referring to. You might want to take a look at this video about Posting a Question. And when posting code, use Markdown formatting to preserve the code's appearance.

A return statement will not print anything to the console, it will return the value from the method. If you want to display it you would need to instantiate the object and call the getArea() method in a System.out.print statement.
