This is my code so far. I am new at Java code so I am lost on how to fix this.

import java.util.*;
public class Main {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        int n;

        Scanner input = new Scanner(;

        System.out.println("\n\nWelcome to the 2023 Kootney Freestyle Cup sign up! Please enter the following information. \n");

        System.out.println("Number of Participants: ");
        int i = input.nextInt();

        String [] name = new String[i];
        int [] age = new int[i];
        int [] compNumber = new int[i];

        for(n=0; n<i; n++) {
            System.out.println("Name: ");
            name[i] = input.nextLine();

            System.out.println("Age: ");
            age[i] = input.nextInt();

            System.out.println("Competition Number: ");
            compNumber[i] = input.nextInt();
        double price;
        price = i * 12.50;

        System.out.println("Receipt \n\n");

        for(n=0; n<i; n++) {
            System.out.println("Participant " + i + ":" + name);
            System.out.println("Age: " + age);
            System.out.println("Competition Number: " + compNumber);
            System.out.println("$" + price);
            System.out.println("\nThank you");


It is displaying this error

Check the index of your arrays in your for loop:
for(n=0; n<i; n++) {
    name[i] = input.nextLine();
    age[i] = input.nextLine();

i is the dimension of the array. You should be using n the loop variant variable, instead.
