I guess we can't import Scanner? The below code works just fine in JGrasp and IntelliJ. Got it, I didnt know the input was at them bottom where it says input... I assumed the input was already part of the check. import java.util.Scanner; public class test { public static void main(String[] args){ Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in); String name = input.next(); int num = input.nextInt(); System.out.printf("%s will take over the world in %d years. Mwa-ha-ha!", name, num); }//end main }//end class
