    import java.util.*;
    public class Assignment2

    {
    public static void main (String [] args)
    {
    Scanner input = new Scanner (System.in);
    //variables

    double product1 = 2.98;
    double product2 = 4.50;
    double product3 = 9.98;
    double product4 = 4.49;
    double product5 = 6.87;
    double totalproduct1;
    double totalproduct2;
    double totalproduct3;
    double totalproduct4;
    double totalproduct5;
    double total;
    char answer;
    int productCount;
    int quanityproduct1;
    int quanityproduct2;
    int quanityproduct3;
    int quanityproduct4;
    int quanityproduct5;



    // create loop

    productCount = 0;

    while (productCount < 6)
    {

    System.out.println("enter quantity for product1");
    quanityproduct1 = Console.readInt();

    System.out.println("enter quantity for product 2");
    quanityproduct2 = Console.readInt();

    System.out.println("enter quantity for product 3");
    quanityproduct3 = Console.readInt();

    System.out.println("enter quantity for product 4");
    quanityproduct4 = Console.readInt();

    System.out.println("enter quanity for product 5");
    quanityproduct5 = Console.readInt();

    productCount = productCount + 1;}

    //calculate total

    totalproduct1 = quanityproduct1 * product1;
    totalproduct1 = quanityproduct2 * product2;
    totalproduct1 = quanityproduct3 * product3;
    totalproduct1 = quanityproduct4 * product4;
    totalproduct1 = quanityproduct5 * product5;


    total = totalproduct1 + totalproduct2 + totalproduct3 + totalproduct4 + totalproduct5;

    System.out.println("total for all products is " + total);
    }
    }


    im getting errors at all the "quanityproduct1 = Console.readInt();" the error is "cnnot find symbol". I dont know wot it is as far as i can tell the code should work,iv been told i could use arrays but im still very new and not quite that far,anyway any help would be great

    you should post the exact errors you get from the java if you want insight on them.

    You defined your scanner as input, not Console.

    Try using input.readInt();

    You also have to initialize your quantityproducts... And make sure that your scanner is input.nextInt(),

    Also please post your errors...
    Who Cares... As Long As It Works...
