i'm trying to use while loop to output the numbers and their square between 1 and 10.
Here's my codes:


import java.io.*;
import java.math.*;

public class Square
{
      public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException
      {
            double num = 1;
            while(num <= 10)
            {
            
            num = Math.pow(num, 2);
            System.out.println(num + " ");
            
            }
      }
}

i don't know why my output is
1.0
1.0
1.0
1.0
.
.
.
.
..
it just keeps going forever!!

how do i fix it?

increment "num" inside the loop

          double num = 1;
          while(num <= 10)
          {
         
             num = Math.pow(num, 2);
             System.out.println(num + " ");
             num += 1.0
         
          }

hi crystalfish0318,

>>why?
Because you didnt increment num.  Therefore, the pow function kept on generating 1 (1^2).

>>how do i fix it?
try:
public static void main(String args[]) throws IOException {
        double num = 1;
        double result;
        while(num <= 10) {
            result = Math.pow(num,2);
            System.out.println(result + " ");
            num++;
        }
    }
It should generate the desired output.

thank you

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

hi crystalfish0318,
>>sorry, another question:
Thats fine~

>>how do i make the output horizontally?
As you probably aware, that "println" actually prints the parameter + a \n.  Whereas, "System.out.print" jsut prints out the parameter without a \n being attached at the end.  So in this case, use print instead of println.

thank you
