Declaring/Initializing Arrays on Separate Lines

This doesn't compile. The problem is fixed if I just declare and initialize x[] on the same line, but I'm curious as to why it doesn't compile. My book says it should. It also compiles if the second line is taken away. What's wrong?

EDIT: I resolved this problem on my own. The array variable x doesn't need brackets after it in line 6.
