Why am I getting an "expected" error on the line below marked with "HERE!"?    

      double principal, annual_rate, time;
      System.out.print("Enter the principal amount: ");      
      BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(;
      try {
          principal = Double.parseDouble(br.readLine());               HERE!
            } catch (IOException ioe) {
         System.out.println("IO error trying to read principal!");

      System.out.print("\nEnter the annual rate of interest: ");      
      BufferedReader br1 = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(;
