hello, Im new to Java and am taking a class. Ive been working on this problem for over 4 hours now and am stuck. this is the problem:

If you divide 1 by 2, you get 0.5. If you divide it again by 2, you get 0.25. Write a

program using “do…while” loop to calculate and output the number of times you have to

divide 1 by 2 to get a value less than one ten-thousands (0.0001)..

Ive tried several ways but nothing is working for me. this is my current code:

public class Divide {

public static void main(String[] args) {

double n =1;

double Final=NumR(n);

System.out.println(Final);

}

public static double NumR(double z){

double x=2;

double i =z;

double total;

do{

i =i/x;

i++;

return i;}

while(total >=.0001);

}}

it doesnt work, Im stuck. How do i return the value of the division so that i can divide it again?

--- Update ---

i think i solved it please check:

public class Divide {

public static void main(String[] args) {

double x = 1;

double count = 0;

double tempNum = x / 2;

while (tempNum >= .0001){

tempNum = tempNum / 2;

count++;

}

System.out.println("The number " + x + " is divisible by two " + count + " times and equals " + tempNum);

}

}

one issue how do i turn it into a do while loop????

--- Update ---

public class Divide {

public static void main(String[] args) {

double x = 1;

double count = 0;

double tempNum = x ;

do {

tempNum = tempNum / 2;

count++;

}

while (tempNum >= .0001);

System.out.println("The number " + x + " is divisible by two " + count + " times and equals " + tempNum);

}

}

final code? does this look right?
