//Find how many dozen and how many left over for a quantity
package dozens;
import java.util.*;
public class Dozen {

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		Scanner keyboard=new Scanner(System.in); //do just once
		int quantity,dozen;
		System.out.print("How many do you have:");
		int quantity=keyboard.nextInt();
		int dozen=quantity/12;
		System.out.println("You will have "+dozen+" dozen.");
		System.out.println("You will have "+quantity%12+" left over.");
	}//main
}//package
CODE
How many do you have? 50
You will have 4 dozen.
You will have 2 left over.

Remember, you should try doing each of these programs on your own. Get it to work, break it, modify it, then try to write it on your own!
