This is a simple problem I have to make a program of as a highschooler.

What I have tried:

I tried moving where line 5 starts, but I don't really have any idea how as this is an introductory activity to this topic.

You're getting the error because the "greater than or equal" operator is '>=', not '=>'.

To add to what Dave has said, you should expect to get syntax errors every day, probably many times a day while you are coding - we all do regardless of how much experience we have! Sometimes, we misspell a variable, or a keyword; sometimes we forget to close a string or a code block. Sometimes the cat walks over your keyboard and types something really weird. Sometimes we just forget how many parameters a method call needs.

We all make mistakes.

And because we all do it, we all have to fix syntax errors - and it's a lot quicker to learn how and fix them yourself than to wait for someone else to fix them for you! So invest a little time in learning how to read error messages, and how to interpret your code as written in the light of what the compiler is telling you is wrong - it really is trying to be helpful!

So read this: How to Write Code to Solve a Problem, A Beginner's Guide Part 2: Syntax Errors[^] - it should help you next time you get a compilation error!

I appreciate your help and concern, but I actually researched a lot before asking. I was confused because I wanted to make an If-Else statement instead of an If statement (the output is more accurate). However, the assignment was to make an If statement. I got an answer before you guys even replied. Here's what I got:

public class Grades
public static void main(String[] args)
int grade = 15;

if (grade > 10)

Thank you though! I will surely keep that in mind.
