    Posting a gazillion lines of code and saying "I don't know what to do" isn't going to get you much help. You need to narrow it down as much as possible and ask a specific question. Posting a SSCCE is a good idea too. As you are doing that it usually helps you to define what your problem is.

    And also if you truly have no clue, then talk to your instructor. For my money though, I'd go through each comment one at a time and try to create the code required. Then if stuck, I'd ask for much more specific assistance rather than a throw in the towel at first sight.

    I've tried a bunch of things. The part I'm talking about is delineated in the code by comments marked 'step 5'. It's asking me to instantiate a class with some objects in it, but I don't know how to do that. I tried Histogram myHistogram = new Histogram(); but I get compiler errors.

    Well do you think copying and pasting the exact error message(s) so that we can see them would be a good idea?

    Crystal ball says you have placed your code outside of a method.

    If you formatted your code in a more concise and uniform manner it would be easier to read.

    We are not doubting that you are trying. It is just frustrating trying to help people when they do post relevant information or be as specific as possible. I can remember spending ages helping someone (30+ posts) and then we found out that they were after something completely different and all that time had been wasted.

    Make sure that Histogram is spelt correctly. Make sure that your Histogram class is in the same package. If they are not in the same package then make sure you import Histogram. You will also have a classpath issue. Do some reasearch on how to compile your code while specifying a classpath.

    Doing that messed up something else, because now the probabilities are wrong again -___- I seriously don't know what to do anymore. This project is only worth 5 points on my grade, I am this close to just saying 'forget it' :(

    sorry. When I put in the part that calls the histogram class, it screwed up something order-wise and now step 3 gives me the wrong results in step 4. I have a feeling I misplaced brackets.

    Mismatched brackets sounds likely. I also recall that in an earlier post I mentioned making your code easier to read if it was formatted better.

    Yeah. I'm going to take one last whack at this tomorrow. I am well and truly exhausted. Thank you.
