Im trying to write a program that displays a table of the centigrade tempertaures 0 through 20 and thier Fahrenheit equivilents. the formula for Centigrade to Fahrenheit is C = 9/5 + 32

This is what i have so far.
import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
 
 
public class CentigradeToFahrenheitRevised
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
	String FahrenheitString;
	double Fahrenheit;
	double Centigrade;
	double tempF;	
	double tempC;	
	
 
	FahrenheitString = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null, "Enter the Temperature in Fahrenheit " +
											JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE);
 
	tempF = Double.parseDouble(FahrenheitString);
	Centigrade = (float)5/9 *(tempF - 32);
 
	JOptionPane.showMessageDialog (null, "The temperature in CENTIGRADES is "+ Centigrade);
	
	System.exit(0);
 
	}
}

Open in new window

you just have some duplication, try something more like this

import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
 
 
public class CentigradeToFahrenheit
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
        String FahrenheitString;
        double Fahrenheit;
        double Centigrade;
 
        FahrenheitString = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null, "Enter the Temperature in Fahrenheit " + "Temperature in FAHRENHEIT", JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE);
 
        Fahrenheit = Double.parseDouble(FahrenheitString);
        Centigrade = (float)5.0/9.0 *(Fahrenheit - 32.0);
        JOptionPane.showMessageDialog (null, "The temperature in °C is " + Centigrade);
 
        }
}

uuse a loop and do the conversion inside the loop

for (int f = 0; f<=20; f++) {
   // do conversion here
   // and output result
}

im not the greatest when it comes to the looping but this is what i have.


for (int f = 0; f<=20; f++)
              {
             
         System.out.printf(Centigrade + "Centigrade %0d is %2s Fahrenheit\n", f + 1, Fahrenheit);

         Centigrade = (float)5.0/9.0 *(Fahrenheit - 32.0);
             
              }

f is the fahrenheight value to compare so use it instead of Fahrenheit var
And calculate celcius before you print it

         Centigrade = (float)5.0/9.0 *(f - 32.0);
         System.out.printf("Centigrade %0d is %2s Fahrenheit\n", Centigrade, f);

you are using a string format for your farenheight value, try this:

         System.out.printf("Centigrade %0d is %0d Fahrenheit\n", Centigrade, f);

This is what i have and i changed %0d to %0f

for (int f = 0; f<=20; f++)
              {
             
                    Centigrade = (float)5.0/9.0 *(f - 32.0);
                 System.out.printf("Centigrade %0f is %0f Fahrenheit\n", Centigrade, f);
             
              }

f is an int, so it needs %d

   System.out.printf("Centigrade %4.2f is %d Fahrenheit\n", Centigrade, f);
