Hi,
I m trying to make a method in which i want to format a fraction into percent format.
But i m unable to remove th errors in it.
If som1 can help me out...
below is the code i have written...

import java.math.BigDecimal;
import java.text.DecimalFormat;
import java.text.DecimalFormatSymbols;
import java.text.MessageFormat;
import java.text.NumberFormat;

public class formating {

public static void main(String[] args) {

BigDecimal number = 8.375; // This is the value I want to format
public static final String DEFAULT_PERCENT_FORMAT = "#0.0#";


public String formatPercent(BigDecimal amount) { // Its showing syntax error here

DecimalFormat format = null;
format = new DecimalFormat(getProperty(DEFAULT_PERCENT_FORMAT));
return format.format(amt);

The brackets are nested incorrectly, so that the formatPercent method is now inside the main method. In Java, you can't declare a method inside of another method.
