I keep getting these errors for a program I wrote, not sure how to fix them. I've looked over the program numerous times and it looks okay to me. Anyone have any idea how I can fix them so I can compile? I included the program and the error messages below.
(if ya want to know what the program is supposed to do, the problem is included in the program.)

errors: C:\My Documents\PopEstimate.java:71: 'class' or 'interface' expected
}

C:\My Documents\PopEstimate.java:73: 'class' or 'interface' expected

2 errors

Did you look at around line 71? Looks to me like you've got an extra closing brace at the end of the file. The error message means that whereas the only legal code at that point would be "class" or "interface", the compiler saw "}".
A real programmer's editor would have told you about this right away -- are you just editing code in Notepad or something? Using better tools can make you life easier!
