Linked List

Criterion Score
1. Declare a LinkedList that stores Strings

2. Add code that formats a String with the calculation's results

3. Store the formatted String into the LinkedList

4. Display the elements in the LinkedList when the user ends input

5. Insure that the FutureValueApp class compiles

6. Include a text file showing the output from at least 3 future value calculations

Send as a zip
