Student robot Peter is an overachiever. Previously, his server was configured to receive scores on a five-point scale, but now his teachers have switched to a 12-point scale. But Peter doesn't know this. He's still focused on getting fives. Let's write him a compare method that compares any number with five.

Please see this code and tell me Whats wrong, i am 100% sure i have written correct code. Why is it calling the function 4 times? package com.codegym.task.task04.task0408; public class Solution { public static void main(String[] args) { compare(3); compare(6); compare(5); } public static void compare(int a) { if(a==5) System.out.println("The number is equal to 5"); if(a<5) System.out.println("The number is less than 5"); else System.out.println("The number is greater than 5"); } } Output: The number is less than 5 The number is greater than 5 The number is equal to 5 The number is greater than 5

If you need help, something isn't right in your code, the server won't accept your solution (even if you are 100% sure that it is correct). Describe your question/issue in the HELP section at codegym.cc/help.

It is because you used "if "for the first and second condition The second "if "should be "if else".

Why did this program not accept else statements? I want to program it as if-else and it will not allow that.

Copied and pasted the conditions from the task yet the task is still failed. Ran the code inside IntelliJ and it works fine. Output is expected for different inputs. For example: compare(3); compare(6); compare(5); yields: The number is less than 5. The number is greater than 5. The number is equal to 5. So what is going on with this task?
