I haven't understand when you are using "public static void main(String[] args)" and when "public static void main(String args[])" ?

I have trouble running example 4 in netbeans. It always tells me that the main class is not found. If I try to run it in Terminal, I get the following error.

Main method not found in class triangle, please define the main method as:
public static void main(String[] args)

I blindly copied your text and tried to make it work. When I just add "public static void main(String[] args)" it also doesn't work. How can I make it work?

You may change the lecture slide "Boolean Logical Operators" and switch the y value back to 2. The very similar tables could be confusing who do not realize that the y value changed from 2 to 3. (Which isn't necessary anyway.) I think changing the example (x==2||y==2) to (x==3||y==3).

Aloha, I am trying like the devil to do a practice exercise from my book:
But I would really appreciate seeing the code so I can grasp my errors and stop spending hours going in circles:
Here it is:

Write a program that allows the user to convert a temperature given in degrees from either Celsius to Fahrenheit or Fahrenheit to Celsius. Use the following formulas:

Degrees_C = 5(Degrees_F- 32)/9
Degrees_F = (9(Degrees_C)/5) + 32)

Prompt the user to enter a temperature and either a C or c for Celsius or an F or f for Fahrenheit. Convert the temperature to Fahrenheit if Celsius is entered, or to Celsius if Fahrenheit is entered. Display the result in a readable format. If anything other that C,c,F, or f is entered, print an error message and stop.

If Logic

  • “If” statements allow a program to make a decision
  • “If” statements require “yes or no” type questions
  • “If” statements take a desired action based on the answer to that question
  • Java “if” statements follow “If...Else...” logic
