previous value of same variable

How can I compare previous value of same variable(result) with current value.

Example, result 1 > result 2 or not, result 2 > result 3 or not, result 3 > result 4 or not, result 4 > result 5 or not.

Code :

import java.util.Random;
public class Test {
public static void main(String args[]){
double A = 5;
Test Cal = new Test();
Cal.run(A);
}
void run(double A){
Random random = new Random();
double result;
int i = 0;
do{
i++;
result = A + random.nextGaussian() / 2;
System.out.println(result);
}while(i<5);
}
}

Re: previous value of same variable

Keep track of the previous result in a temporary variable.

Example work-flow:

Init. 2 variables, last val and current val.

Get current val, set last val equal to current val.

for i = 1, i < 5, ++i

get a new current val

compare it to the last val

set last val equal to current val

Perfect work-flow.

I understand and can do it.

Thank you very much for your help.
