Why can student[x] be resolved?

The compiler has no problem resolving student[x] in line 61, but can't figure it out in line 44? Why not?
I'm getting this compiler error:
src/java192/project3/GradePoint.java:44: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : variable getStudentNumber
location: class Student
student[1].getStudentNumber +
^
(carat under [ )
My code:

It is helpful if you

1) Put your code in code tags when you post it

2) Point out which line is in question

for example:

student[x].getStudentNumber + // line 61

How does one add code tags?

Since you don't have all your code posted (specifically the Student class), I will look into my crystal ball and predict that getStudentNumber has not been defined in the Student class or it is actually a method and you forgot the parenthesis :getStudentNumber()

Crud, sorry. Tried to add line numbers and it didn't work. Line 44 reads: student[x].getStudentNumber +
and line 61 reads: student[x].setGrade(y, tempGrade);

THANK YOU Mr. Morris! I would like to purchase one half dozen of your crystal balls! It was a method without ().
