    Default Help with a java question...

    If this is against the rules here, please remove this topic.

    I'm trying to join a new forum specifically for java games, but to activate your account you need to answer a small trivia quiz. Being the java noob I am, I'm unable to complete the trivia to activate my account. I can't find a way to email/message an admin on the site, so my idea was to ask the java masters here for the answers, if this is in the wrong topic/not allowed, please delete it as I don't want to break the rules here.
     int o = 2;
          int j = "JZG".hashCode() % 3000;
          int w = "DUY".hashCode() % 3000;
          for (int i = 0; i <= w; i++)
             o = (o ^ i) % j;
          return o;
    What is the returned value?



    What is the greatest common divisor of the previous two results?

    Erm, forgive my ignorance but... Why can't you just execute the code to find out?

    If you're thinking of making games in Java, the logical step is to learn Java first.
    Because of that, we can give you assistance to get that code working.

    You go off and try and execute the code now and come back when you get stuck, posting any relevant error messages and issues at the same time.
    Best of luck.

    So you can't execute it? but you can run it? No comprende.
    Print the code that you're working with.

    it runs, but how would i get it to show me the value of 'o'? I've tried System.out.println(o); but it hasn't worked.

    public class test{
     
    public static void main(String[] args) {
     
     
    	}
     
     
    	public static code(){
    		int o = 2;
    	      int j = "JZG".hashCode() % 3000;
    	      int w = "DUY".hashCode() % 3000;
    	      for (int i = 0; i <= w; i++)
    	         o = (o ^ i) % j;
    	      return 0;
     
    	}
     
     
    }

    For anything to be executed in Java there needs to be an entry point inside the method: public static void main(String[] args){}.
    Easiest way to deal with this is for you to take all the code from inside the method "code" and place it inside the braces of the "main" method.

    Print out o using System.out.println("Result: " + o);

    Just to ease your process however, the answer to all questions on the gaming site are 1955
