Hi, Im trying to display the date correctly in this format: Tuesday, September 26 2004

using this script:

public class ProgramFive {

      public static void main(String[] args) {
            int a;
            int y;
            int m;
            int d;
            int month;
            int day;
            int year;
            String output_s;
            String s = "Sunday   Monday   Tuesday  WednesdayThursday Friday   Saturday ";
            String NameOfTheDayOfTheWeek;
            String g = "January  February March    April    May      June     July     August   SeptemberOctober  November December ";
            String NameOfTheMonth;
            System.out.println("Sebastian Velasquez");
            System.out.println("Please enter a month as an integer, eg: 1 means January, 2 means February.......,12 means december");
            month = ConsoleIn.readLineInt();
            System.out.println("Please enter a day of the month as an integer, eg: 1......31");
            day = ConsoleIn.readLineInt();
            System.out.println("Enter integer year, as 4 digits");
            year = ConsoleIn.readLineInt();
            a = (14 - month) / 12;
            y = year - a;
            m = month + 12 * a;
            d = (day + y + y / 4 - y / 100 + y / 400 + (31 * m) / 12) % 7;
            NameOfTheDayOfTheWeek = s.substring(9 * d, 9 * d + 9);
            NameOfTheMonth = g.substring(9 * m, 9 * m + 9);
            
            
            System.out.println(NameOfTheDayOfTheWeek + ", " + NameOfTheMonth + " " + day + " " + year );
            }
      }
      
I know the problem is on the NameOfTheMonth substring, im just not sure on how to write it correctly, any help would be greately appreciated

it'd be easier to store the names in an array.

> m = month + 12 * a;

try:

m = (month-1) * 9;

use String's trim() method to remove trailing spaces

NameOfTheDayOfTheWeek = s.substring(9 * d, 9 * d + 9).trim();
 NameOfTheMonth = g.substring(9 * m, 9 * m + 9).trim();
