    Question Illegal start of expression

    class volume_figures
    void volume(int l,int b,int h)
    System.out.println("Volume of cuboid="+(l*b*h));
    void volume(float r1,float h1)
    System.out.println("Volume of cylinder="+(3.14*r1*r1*h1));
    double volume (double r2,double h2);
    float v=(1/3*3.14*r2*h2);
    return v;
    public static void main (String[]args)throws IOException
    BufferedReader br=new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(;
    volume_figures=new volume_figures();
    System.out.println("Enter length of cuboid");
    int l=Integer.parseInt(br.readLine());
    System.out.println("Enter breadth of cuboid");
    int b=Integer.parseInt(br.readLine());
    System.out.println("Enter height of cuboid");
    int h=Integer.parseInt(br.readLine());
    System.out.println("Enter radius for cylinder");
    float r1=Float.parseFloat(br.readLine());
    System.out.println("Enter height of cylinder");
    float h1=Float.parseFloat(br.readLine());
    System.out.println("Enter radius for cone");
    double r2=Double.parseDouble(br.readLine());
    System.out.println("Enter height for cone");
    double h2=Double.parseDouble(br.readLine());
    double cone=ob.volume(r2,h2);

    When you have a question, start your own thread. Don't post to old dead threads and don't hijack another poster's thread.

    Also go through and BB Code List - Java Programming Forum and edit your post accordingly.

    Didn't you at least read through the responses in the thread you hijacked? You have made much the same mistake -- count your opening and closing braces { }

    If you're forever cleaning cobwebs, it's time to get rid of the spiders.
