# How do I make a connection for x1 and y1?

This is the question I was given:

Create class (or classes) contain method to calculate the distance between two points `(x1, y1)` and `(x2, y2)` which are the data fields of the class. All numbers and return values should be of type double. Incorporate in class the methods that enable the user to enter the coordinates of the points. Test this class with client program DistanceTest.

But I am testing with using the formula of `x1 + y1` instead of using the formula of finding (distance).

I want to use get and set method to do addition maths.

This is my code for distance1 :

``````import java.util.Scanner;
public class distance1 {
private double result;
public void credit(double x1,double y1)
{
result = x1 + y1;
}
public double getResult(){
return result;
}
}
``````

And this is the code for distance1Test

``````import java.util.Scanner;
public class distancetest1 {
public static void main(String[]args){
distance1 x1 = new distance1();
distance1 y1 = new distance1();
distance1 r  = new distance1();
Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
double number;
System.out.print("Enter a number: ");
number = input.nextDouble();
System.out.print("Enter a number: ");
number = input.nextInt();
System.out.printf("Result is: ", r.getResult());
}
}
``````

Firstly you forgot to call the `credit function` to do the addition, and secondly you need to change the `System.out.printf("Result is: ", r.getResult());` to

``````System.out.println("Result is: "+ r.getResult());
``````

see how to use printf in java: How to use System.out.printf

``````public static void main(String[] args){
double x1,y1;
distance1 r  = new distance1();
Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
System.out.print("Enter a number: ");
x1 = input.nextDouble();
System.out.print("Enter a number: ");
y1 = input.nextInt();
r.credit(x1, y1);
System.out.println("Result is: "+ r.getResult());
}
``````

Jaca classes must have an uppercase first letter

``````public class Dimension{
private int x1;
...
// Use a constructor no initialize
Dimension(int x1, int x2, int y1, int y2){
this.x1 = x1;
...
}
public double getDistance(){
return Math.sqrt((x1-x2)*(x1-x2) + (y1-y2)*(y1-y2));
}
}
``````

Test using:

``````public static void main(String args[]){
Dimension d = new Dimension(1,10,40,30);
System.out.print(d.getDistance());
}
``````

The problem is in the method main of your class distancetest1, you should :

1. retrieve the two number inputs in two different variables "x" and "y" of type Double
2. instantiate only one distance1 object "r" (x1 and y1 are useless in your try)
3. call the method r.credit(...) by passing it your two variables as arguments
4. display the result with the method r.getResult()

### Why is volatile needed in java when there are harware stuff solving it for you?

From what I've read, the "volatile" keyword in java ensures that a thread always fetches the most up-to-date value of a particular pointer, usually by reading/writing directly from/to memory to avoid cache inconsistencies
