I have an assignment where the computer should simulate the roll of 3 dice 60000 times,sum the values determine the frequency of the numbers and the percentages.
Problem: when try to compile I get an error message that says modifyArray(int) in lab5 cannot be applied to modifyArray();
Please help,I do not understand the message.
Thank you for your help
Nancy
Here is my code

To answer your specific question, the method signature for modifyArray()
requires an int as an argument, which you don't provide when you call it.
You have a number of other problems. Compare your code to this, to see the
differences (this code does what I think you're trying to do)

The percentages showed OK for me.
Your question, adding the elements of an array? Loop through the array
adding the value at each element.

nother question. I need to add the % sign to the percentages, but it only displays on the las number Wahat did I do wrong?
Perhaps you want to add a few percent signs to be output during the execution of your for-loop. (In other words, look inside your for-loop. It's not displaying any percent signs.)

I already tried. Right after twoD.format(percent[x]), but then the applet never display any result at all.
Thanks for your help

Thank you very much for all your help.
I was placing the % sign inside the parenthesis by mistake. That is why it did not work.
Thank you again
