Little Loop Problem
Code :

```  package xTestsx;   import java.util.*;   /** * * @author JSoft */   public class NegativeCounts_UF {   private static Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);   public static void main(String[] args) {   int repeatCount = - 1;   int negativeCount = 0;   /* int num1Count = 0, num2Count = 0, num3Count = 0; */   int num1, num2, num3;   int totalCount = 0;   String input1 = "", input2 = "", input3 = "";   do {   System.out.print("Num1: "); num1 = sc.nextInt();   System.out.print("Num2: "); num2 = sc.nextInt();   System.out.print("Num3: "); num3 = sc.nextInt();   if (num1 < 0) {   negativeCount++; // num1Count++;   input1 = "Num1" + " "; }   if (num2 < 0) {   negativeCount++; // num2Count++;   input2 = "Num2" + " "; }   if (num3 < 0) {   negativeCount++; // num3Count++;   input3 = "Num3" + " "; }   repeatCount++;   /** * Check if the Count of negative inputs is greater than 1 * then the output of string must be in plural form */ if (negativeCount > 1) {   System.out.println(input1 + input2 + input3 + "Are Negative!"); } /** * Otherwise if the negative input is equals to 1 then the output of * string must be in singular form */ else if (negativeCount == 1) {   System.out.println(input1 + input2 + input3 + "Is Negative!"); } /** * Otherwise there are no negative inputs */ else {   System.out.println("There Are No Negative Inputs!"); } } while (Continue());   //Display the count of the negative numbers that the user entered System.out.print("\n"); System.out.println("The Total Count Of Negative Numbers That Were Entered Is: " + negativeCount);   //Dispay how many counts the user repeated in entering 3 numbers System.out.print("\n"); System.out.println("The Total Repeat Count Where You Entered Negative Numbers Is : " + repeatCount); }   /** * Ask the user if he wants to continue * * @return true if the user entered ignored case of "Y" or "YES", * else if the user entered ignored case "N" or "NO" return false, * otherwise return false */ public static boolean Continue() {   String cont;   System.out.print("\n"); System.out.print("Do You Want To Enter Again?: "); cont = sc.next();   if ((cont.equalsIgnoreCase("Y")) || (cont.equalsIgnoreCase("YES"))) {   System.out.print("\n"); return true; } else if ((cont.equalsIgnoreCase("N")) || (cont.equalsIgnoreCase("NO"))) {   return false; } else {   return false; } } }```

expected out put should be :

this one is fine
Code :

```Num1: -2 Num2: 4 Num3: 3 Num1 Is Negative!```

but this one
Code :

```Num1: -2 Num2: 4 Num3: 3 Num1 Is Negative!   Do You Want To Enter Again?: YES   Num1: 2 Num2: 3 Num3: -4 Num1 Num3 Are Negative! //this part !! //its still count the previews negative count..   Do You Want To Enter Again?: NO   The Total Count Of Negative Numbers That Were Entered Is: 2 //this part is fine   The Total Repeat Count Where You Entered Negative Numbers Is : 1// this one too```

have you notice the logic error? i hope you understand.. but im stuck with this..

what i want is... every time i loop it will only display the numbers that were negative not the previews negative numbers that i entered ..

EXPECTED OUTPUTt:
Code :

```Num1: -2 Num2: 3 Num3: 4 Num1 Is Negative!   Do You Want To Enter Again?: YES   Num1: 3 Num2: 4 Num3: -1 Num3 Is Negative!   Do You Want To Enter Again?: YES   Num1: 2 Num2: -3 Num3: -4 Num2 Num3 Are Negative!   Do You Want To Enter Again?: NO   The Total Count Of Negative Numbers That Were Entered Is: 2   The Total Repeat Count Where You Entered Negative Numbers Is : 0```

help me with little algorithm please

Re: Little Loop Problem
i'm not 100% sure , but after each of the
Code :

`System.out.println(input1 + input2 + input3 + "Are/Is Negative!");`
```input1 = ""; input2 = ""; input3 = "";```
