Default Any Java programmers out there?

Need help with something as I don't know Java. (I'm an old COBOL programmer). Any/all help greatly appreciated.

Trying to compute an average GPA.
My pasting doesn't show indentations.

Here's the code:
public class averageGPA
double gpa;
//double sum;

public averageGPA(double a) //order of info
gpa = a;


public averageGPA gpa1 = new averageGPA(2.9);

public averageGPA gpa2 = new averageGPA(4.0);

public averageGPA gpa3 = new averageGPA(3.9);

public averageGPA gpa4 = new averageGPA(3.0);

public double averageGPA(double gpa)
double sum;
sum=gpa1+gpa2+gpa3+gpa4; //GPA is added

int totalStudents = 4; //total students

double averageGPA = sum/totalStudents; //divdie GPA by the number of students
return averageGPA; //return average to display


It doesn't like the line in red.
Returned error is
"bad operand types for binary operator '+'.
first type: averageGPA
second type: averageGPA

Any ideas? Looks like a storage definition error to me but I don't know Java.
If you didn't hear it with your own ears or see it with your own eyes, don't invent it with your small mind and share it with your big mouth.
