# Java Programming | Introduction to Functions

This is a tutorial for Introduction to functions in java. The program has a static function that is called to add two numbers given in the parameters. The program is extendable. Go enjoy the program. Lets begin…

Program for sum of two numbers using function in java.

``````
//import Scanner as we require it.
import java.util.Scanner;

// the name of our class its public
public class Function {
//void main
public static void main (String[] args)
{
//declare int
int x,y,z;
//print message
System.out.println("Enter Two numbers:");
//Take input
Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
x = input.nextInt();
y = input.nextInt();

//call function
z=sum(x,y);

//print the sum
System.out.println("Sum = "+z);
}

//declare a static function
public static int sum(int a, int b)
{
int sum = a+b;
return sum;
}
}
``````

Output

Enter Two numbers:
1
2
Sum = 3

How does it work
1. You enter the number.
2. The function calculates sum.
3. The sum is printed.

Extending it
The program is extendable as it is a basic program and can be implement in any java program. Go enjoy the functions beyond the limit.

Explanation.
1. Import the Scanner.
2. Declare the class as public
3. Add the void main function
4. Declare input as Scanner.
5. Add system.out.println() function with the message to enter number.
6. Take the inputs and save it in variables.
7. Call the function.
8. Add system.out.print() function to print sum.
9. Add the function out of void main function.

At the end.
You learnt creating the Java program for Introduction to functions. So now enjoy the program.
