As simple as 2+2

In a Java application, all the actions are performed by functions. Or more accurately, methods. In our program, a kind mentor has already implemented a method (that is, written the method's code) that can calculate the sum of two numbers. All you need to do is call this method with the arguments 2 and 2. You need to do this in the main method.

I'm thinking in the first public static we have the method and in the second public static we have the function?

The knowledge needed to give a correct answer hasn't really been taught in depth yet. You may be better off coming back to this one down the road after you have more training for it to make sense. I think the purpose of this task is just to get you thinking and prepare you for what's coming.

THIS ! --- Code Gym drops some things out of the sky with no background reading at all ! It's their method. It's part of the programming struggle. Go with it !

This task is an epic one, thus, it is normal if one's having a misunderstanding since further knowledge is needed to comprehend what is actually happening. For the reference, I have come back to this task after almost finishing level 2. And I can understand what the task is all about. My level 1 could not understand anything. So for anybody out there, who is not yet ready either to search new things or don't have the knowledge yet, I would suggest to skip this task and come back later.

• The program should display the sum of 2 and 2. • The main method should call the sum method with the arguments 2 and 2. • The main method should not call a screen output method. • Don't change the sum method. In order to display the sum, you'd need to use println, or another screen output method. But you also should not call a screen output method. Conflicting requirements in the final task.

sum(2, 2); all you have to do (I used a hint) I guess to call a new method you just type the name of it with parentheses and the arguments inside of them

THIS ! Kinda like hoisting in JavaScript ? ... where the invoke / call to launch the function is way above the method function definition. It's a total trip for new coders for sure --- hang in there -- totally fundamental to JAVA and all programming. It's good to see that line x line procedural coding from the stone age has evolved where-by the software build is so fast into memory that it can see all the code above / below ... where ever. My 2 cents.

I am not seeing in the lesson where is tells you how to call a method in the same class. Is it in a previous lesson?
