Hey Guys!
If your gettting the "Resource Leak" error, then here's how you fix it.

Close the method at the end. (Like in the picture, call out[type out] your scanner.
I built a little Kindegarden Calculator:
public static void main(String args[]){
Scanner Calculator = new Scanner(;
double Number1, Number2, answer;
System.out.println("Enter Your First Number: ");
Number1 = Calculator.nextDouble();
System.out.println("Now Your Second Number: ");
Number2 = Calculator.nextDouble();
answer = Number1 + Number2;

And when you hit play, your "leak" should be resolved.

Hope this helps!
