Newbie to Java Programming needs help with calculation

If anyone can give me some direction getting

      String z[] =
          {"x * ([d[0]] / (1 - Math.pow (1 / (1 + [d[0]]), a[0])))",
           "x * ([d[1]] / (1 - Math.pow (1 / (1 + [d[1]]), a[1])))",
           "x * ([d[2]] / (1 - Math.pow (1 / (1 + [d[2]]), a[2])))"};
   
to perform the calculation and then out putting the results in stead of the formula, it would be greatly appreciated.

__________________________________________

When I compile and execute I get:

Response A = 300
Response B = 5660
Response C = $125,000.00

Calculation = x * ([d[0]] / (1 - Math.pow (1 / (1 + [d[0]]), a[0])))
__________________________________________


Here is the part of my code that deals with this:

      String a[] = {"300", "400" "500"};
      String b[] = {"5660", "1880", "884"};
      String c[] = {"2%", "4%", "6%"};
      String d[] = {"0.004166", "0.00333", "0.005"};
      double x = 125000.00;
 

      String z[] =
          {"x * ([d[0]] / (1 - Math.pow (1 / (1 + [d[0]]), a[0])))",
           "x * ([d[1]] / (1 - Math.pow (1 / (1 + [d[1]]), a[1])))",
           "x * ([d[2]] / (1 - Math.pow (1 / (1 + [d[2]]), a[2])))"};
   
               
              int[] AA = new int [2];
              double[] BB = new double [2];
              double [] CC = new double [2];
              double [] DD = new double [2];
             
                         
                for(int i = 0; i == 0; i++)
                {
     
                    //Output
                    System.out.println ("\n Response A  =  " +(a[0]));
                    System.out.println ("   Response B =  " +(c[0]));
                    System.out.println ("   Response C = " +usCFormat.format (x));
         
                    System.out.println ("Calculation = " +(z[0]));
                    System.out.println ("\n");                    
                }
   

then I have this same "for" statement for [1] and [2];



THANKS FOR THE HELP!

Would it not be better to just use a function?



            int a[] = {300, 400, 500};

            double d[] = {0.004166, 0.00333, 0.005};

            double x = 125000.00;

........


      public static double calc(int n) {
            return x * d[n] / (1 - Math.pow(1 / (1 + d[n]), a[n]));
      }

I have to use an array.

Why are all your arrays of type String? I'd suggest making all the arrays with numbers in them of type double or type int as CEHJ suggested. If you want to use an array, just make array z of type double and it'll work fine.

Make sure to remove the quotes in the array (or, to make it easier to read, replace them with parentheses).
