I can't quite get the running total correct. I am supposed to sum the numbers 1 through ten and print the result.
My numbers are off.


public class Sum
{
      public static void main(String args[])
      {
            int total = 2;
      
            for(int i = 1; i <= 10; i++)
            {
                  total += i;
                  System.out.printf("i = %d\n",i);      
                  System.out.printf("total= %d\n", total);      
            }
            
      }      
}

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
