Printing out numbers onto the console
Hi I'm doing a exercise which requires a user interface. I have coded prompts for the user e.g.
Please Enter Amount (type double)
Please Enter Agreed Interest Rate (type double)
What seems to be happening is:
1) When I enter an amount (type double) a different amount will printout onto the console screen e.g
I enter 8.0
Console screen prints out 56.0 ????
2) After I enter the one amount the console will not allow me to enter the amounts for the other options ???
I am using Eclipse Gallello (sorry for spelling)
public class Comp_Interest_Calc_tut
public static void main(String args)
* Variables have already been declared*
Years_In = (double)System.in.read();
System.out.println("Enter Agreed Interest Rate");
InterestRate_PA = (double)System.in.read();
