This is part of my homework assignment that I have been stuck on for a couple hours. According to my instructions this is how it should be but I keep getting errors. Please help.

double pct = percent(possible); // USE 'PERCENT' METHOD TO CALCULATE PERCENTAGE
System.out.println("Percent: " + pct);
System.out.println("Grade: " + Other.grade(percent)); // USE 'GRADE' METHOD TO GET LETTER GRADE
public static double percent(double score, int possible) {
if (possible > 0)
return 100 * (score / possible);
return 0;
class Other {
public static char grade(double percent) {
