I had to write a program that found the distance between three points.



When I wrote the program, it said that I needed 1. to put a close parentheses at the end (41), and 2. put an identifier in line 23
I'm not sure why I would need a close parentheses at the end of my code, and I also already have an identifier. Does anyone know where I'm messing up?

Thanks!

Hello Theresa,

The problem with your program is 1) it is complaining there no closing brace for the class and 2) the parameters for the distanceFinder method are all Points so it should read distanceFinder(Point x, Point y, Point z) just like the constructor - you can't have Point(doube a,b).

To better organize your code, you may want to use braces for if-else statements. Then you should see what went wrong (1).

That looks very peculiar. Why have you got a point with 6 coordinates?

I'm sorry for the typo, it should read: //the points' coordinates (2 for each point)
