char keys[ROWS][COLS] = {


  {'4','5','6','B' },




byte rowPins[ROWS] = {5, 4, 3, 2}; //connect to the row pinouts of the keypad

byte colPins[COLS] = {9, 8, 7, 6}; //connect to the column pinouts of the keypad

Keypad keypad = Keypad( makeKeymap(keys), rowPins, colPins, ROWS, COLS );

void setup(){

void loop(){
  char key = keypad.getKey();
  if (key != NO_KEY){
