    If you want my advice, when you face these kind of problems go to the line that error message tells you delete the line, then think what you want to do and write it back again. If you do, you will see that you misspelled the method nextLine() with nextline(). Remember Java language is a case sensitive.

    it is
    Java Code:
    String name = scan.nextLine();
    Java Code:
    String name = scan.nextline();
