Overloading Method
Hi I am trying to call a method to compute 1  3 + 5  7 + .. ..  (n  2) + n
For example: n = 9 the Series would look like 1  3 + 5  7 + 9 = 5
I am not looking to get spoon fed. Just hoping someone could help me understand the logic and let me know if I am even close.
Here is what I have so far.
import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
public class OddSum {
public static void main(String[] args) {
int oddSeries, m, n;
String num1Str, num2Str;
// Get a pair of positive Integers from users
num1Str = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter a positive integer:");
m = Integer.parseInt(num1Str);
num2Str = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter a positive integer:");
n = Integer.parseInt(num2Str);
// Call a method to compute 1  3 + 5  7 + .. ..  (n  2) + n
oddSeries = myOddNum(n);
// output the result
System.out.println("(OddNum) The series of 1 to " + n + " = " + oddSeries);
}
// Method myOddNum with on Parameter
public static int myOddNum(int myN) {
int localSum, oddnum;
localSum = 0;
oddnum = 0;
for (int i = 1; i <= myN; i++) {
if (i%2 != 0);{
oddnum = myN  2;}
localSum = localSum + oddnum;}
return localSum;
}
}

Rephrase your question and surround your code in highlight tags.
