People here are happy to HELP you, but they will not do the work for you. Show us what you've tried so far, and folks will comment and make suggestions.

However, simply posting the problem and saying "help" will mostly get your post ignored by everyone. Nobody wants to do your homework for you.


There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
