    Simple,

    the % operator will return the remainder that's gotten from the division of two numbers.

    If i%1000 = 0, that means it's divisible by 1000, i.e. i = 0, i = 1000, i = 2000, etc.

    for (i = 1; i < = 30000; i++)
    {
    if (i%1000 ==0)
    print out result
    }

    See Assignment, Arithmetic, and Unary Operators (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Language Basics), mainly the remainder operator. Figure out when the remainder of i by 1000 is zero:
     if ( i % 1000 == 0 ){
     
    }
