JRE Problem with mac os 10.11.3

Macbook Pro 13inch without retina display.
My os is 10.11.3
I have installed LO
I downloaded and installed javaforosx.dmg and JavaForOSX.pkg
I have also downloaded and installed jre-8u73-macosx-x64.dmg.
Yet when i open LO and start creating database, i get an error message saying that LO needs jre … please install it… or words to that effect.

Someone please guide me to the correct steps

In brief, you need to install a JRE that matches the bit-size of LO rather than (possibly) your OS. Next, select that JRE version (if not already selected) within LO.

Hi. Try LibreOffice → Preferences → LibreOffice → Advanced → select the Java version you’ve installed.
