C3 P1

static byte sumIt(byte a, byte b){
return a + b;

class B{
A obj = new A();
byte result = A.sumIt(obj.bitval1,obj.bitval2);

  • Why will the code above not compile? Fix the error (in the c3p1 class) so that it does compile, and make the program print the result to the screen.
  • Now erase the double slashes // from the code involving c and d. Compile the code. Why is there an error occurring since the code is equivalently doing the same operation on c and d? What is the reason for this error, and what is so different between how we are changing the value of c versus how we are changing the value of d? Fix the error so that the code compiles.

C3 P2

class B{}
class A extends B{};

class c3p2{
public static void main(String[] args){
A obj1 = new B();
B obj2 = new A();
  • What is the error in the code above? Explain your answer. (Your answer needs to be more than what the compiler is telling you.)

C3 P3

class c3p3{
int x = 5;
void Joo(){
int y = 7;
y = JooUp();
int JooUp(){
return y++;

public static void main(String[] args){
c3p3 obj = new c3p3();
  • Explain the problem with the code above. What kind of error will you get? (Compiler? RunTime?) What is the difference between a compiler error and a runtime error?
  • Re-write the code so that JooUp increments the value of y successfully. Make sure your code compiles, and prints the value of y to the screen. (I am looking for you to rewrite the code in such a way that it solves the scoping problem, with a little change to the original code as possible.)

  • One day, Mr. Partridge came by the bank to establish an account and invest $500 into the account. But when he went home to check his account online, the balance registered $0.00 dollars. Observing Justin's code, why did this happen?
  • How can the problem be fixed? Fix the problem and then add println methods to the main function to show that the problem is fixed for all entries made into Mr. Partridge's account.
  • What is the advantage/disadvantage to making all the methods in the User class static? Does it create more or less work on the part of the programmer? Explain your answer.
  • Copy and paste the code above into a new text document and name that document c3p5.java. (You will have to rename the c3p4 class to c3p5) Alter the createAccount method so that it returns a type User, and the User object user1 is created in the same line of code in the main method. Then print all the results to the screen. Why does this way you tried work but not what Justin tried in step 1 before you altered his code?
  • Extra Credit[optional] Copy the code above and paste it into a new text file named c3Extra.java. Alter the code so that the user has the ability to create an array of accounts from the command prompt. Also, "clean up" the way the user enters information for each account, such as First Name, Middle, Last Name, etc...
  • Extra Credit[optional] List areas of weakness in Justin's code, then Fix them. (Make them more efficient)
