    Default What does this assignment do

    system.out.println ("Blah = " + blah (x, 3));

    What is the purpose of 3, what is it doing?

    Default Re: What does this assignment do

    It appears to be calling a static method with the parameters x and 3. It should display "Blah = [whatever the method returns]"

    Not necessarily static.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    If it wasn't static, wouldn't you need some kind of keyword before it; super, this, objectName, etc?..

    Nope, the method blah( ... ) only needs to be accessible from the current contex, e.g. private in the current class, protected in a superclass (or wider) etc.

    kind regards,
