This still will not compile because there is an error with the For Statement somewhere.  I am missing something and I'm not sure, obvious logic problem.  I'm looking through my book but the compilation error comes up and says that there is an error with the semi colon after gradeCounter, the "!" which is my sentinel, and the space after i++.  I don't understand.  Please point me in the right direction.  I'm really racking my brain; I'm a beginner programmer.
Thanks!!!

import java.util.Scanner;
 
public class AverageGrades {
 
public static void main(String[] args){
        
    scanner input = new Scanner ( System.in );
 
    int double grade;
    int double sum = 0;
    int double gradeCounter = 0;
    int double grade = 0;
 
    // read the number of grades
    System.out.println( "Enter the number of grades: ");
    grade = input.nextInt();
 
//calculate the total of all grades entered
      
    For ( gradeCounter = 1; grade != 0; i++ )
      
    // read grade from the user
    System.out.println( "Enter grade(s):");
    grade = input.nextInt();
     
    // add the grade to the sum, and add 1 to count
    sum = sum + grade;
   
    //calculate the average
 
    int double average = 0;
      
    average = (double) sum / gradeCounter;
    System.out.println( "The grade average is " + average );
    
       } // end Main
} // end Class
