Step 2: Methods

In Java code is written in methods, so if you need to repeat code you can just call the method again. An example of this follows:

public void runner(){


public void integer(){
     int x = 3
     int b = 3 * x

     int y = x/b


Methods are useful because they allow you to make your code shorter and more efficient, methods are always started and finished with curly braces { }. When you add a new method you should always make sure that you have indented the ending curly brace at the same indent as the beginning of the method
