Your line:

int[] [] magicNumbers = new int[] [];

Is an incomplete declaration/creation of the array. Why?

NOTE: By the way the copy to clipboard option on this forum does not seem to work with my laptop, I am using Google Chrome.

An equivalent declaration/creation and initialization of your array would have been:



Did you mean to write your code inside a method? Maybe a main() method? It doesn't have to be main(), but it should be in a method.

You cannot put arbitrary statements like "for" at class level. Those statements must be inside a constructor or method.

Workaround: Click "view plain" instead of "copy to clipboard", then select the text in the popup window and copy it with Ctrl+C.

lol, how could I forget to create a method() that Java actually looks into for executing code, btw is '...' considered valid for passing arguments?
