I cannot understand why it is wrong. Can someone explain me what is wrong exactly?
I got this error message:

CarLoan.java:21: error: cannot find symbol
int interest = (monthlyBalance * interestRate) / 100;
^
symbol: variable monthlyBalance
location: class CarLoan
CarLoan.java:22: error: cannot find symbol
int monthlyPayment = monthlyBalance + interest;
^
symbol: variable monthlyBalance
location: class CarLoan
2 errors


public class CarLoan {
	public static void main(String[] args) {

	// A simple Car Loan Calculator
  
  int carLoan = 10000;
  int loanLength = 3;
  int interestRate = 5;
  int downPayment = 2000;
   
    if (loanLength <= 0 || interestRate <= 0) {
      System.out.println ("Error! You must take out a valid car loan.");
    }
    else if (downPayment >= carLoan) {
      System.out.println ("The car can be paid in full");
    }
    else {
    int remainingBalance = carLoan - downPayment;
    int months = loanLength * 12;
    int monthlyBalance = remainingBalance / months;
    int interest = (monthlyBalance * interestRate) / 100;
    int monthlyPayment = monthlyBalance + interest;
    System.out.println (monthlyPayment);
      
    }
  
	}
}
