calling methods from main method

Ok, say I have 3 methods:



How do I call methods "metOne" and "metTwo" from the main method?? All of the information I can find on it is just confusing me even more.

As both methods are static, you can just call them, and get the returned value


Note the "For (int x = 0; x > 5; x--)" is not going to lead you anywhere

I just tried plugging that into my real code and it gave me an error saying . <sigh> this is absolutely frustrating. Thanks anyway!

You aren't showing us the code so we don't know where it is.

But that message tells you that you are trying to call a method that expects an int parameter and aren't sending any.

That would be less frustrating if you'd show us the real problem. Your first post shows a methods with no parameters, whereas your compile error indicates that you are trying to call a method you has a parameter. It will be difficult to help if you don't post your real problem.

Sorry ... I knew it was a big no-no to repost something already posted but in my ... tiredness, frustration, add whatever word you like here ... to figure this out, I posted a new question instead of adding to my already posted question which would've made more sense.

I'll consider my hand slapped and make sure not to do this again.
