Need a different way to add Cubed numbers 1-10
Code :

/*
*/
import java.util.Scanner;

public class Lab5{

/**
* Returns an integer whose value is a^3 (a cubed).
* @param any integer to be cubed
* @return a^3 (a cubed)
*/
public static int cubed(int a){
int cube = a * a * a;
return cube;
}

*1) What is the method's return type?
Integer

*2) What is the method's formal parameter name?
A
*3) What is the cube method's signature?
int a
*4) What line of code invokes the cube method?
Return Cube
*5) What is the name of the argument passed to cube?
*/ //Cubed

public static void main(String[] args) {
Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in);
System.out.println("Enter an integer");
int x = in.nextInt();

// invoking the cubed method
System.out.println("The cubed value of "+ x + " is "
+ Lab5.cubed(x)+".");

/* Below this comment, write a piece of code that will sum the cubes
* 0f all the numbers from 1 to 10 inclusive. 0utput this sum (labelled).
*/
int a = 1;
int b = 2*2*2;
int c = 3*3*3;
int d = 4*4*4;
int e = 5*5*5;
int f = 6*6*6;
int g = 7*7*7;
int h = 8*8*8;
int i = 9*9*9;
int j = 10*10*10;

System.out.println("Sum of Cubed Numbers of 1-10:  "+a + b + c + d + e + f + g + h + i + j);
}

}
/*
* Copy and paste your program output here
*/

The last part with int a-j......
Is there a better way of doing this, like possibly putting into a loop and showing output from maybe a single piece of information? I hope im asking this question right.....

--- Update ---

Or really is there a better way of adding them up.... to reduce coding

Yes, there is a better way. Try your loop idea and see what happens.

Why do most of your answers to questions 1 - 5 have incorrect capitalization?

Re: Need a different way to add Cubed numbers 1-10
capitalization doesn't really matter... just answering the question.

ummm.... as far as the loop goes,

I'm not very keen on the loop idea but I'll do a little more reading and find out.
