    Default Anyone can help me with my code pleasee?

    Alright so im supposed to make a java app that tells you where to stand on this "game". This "game" is determined by how many people are in a circle. The game proceeds by a person holding a sword, passing it to the left to another person, and he passes it again, and the guy who has the sword kills the guy to his right. I have to create a java app which determines where to stand. I have this so far and i have no idea what to do next

    import java.util.Scanner;

    public class thegame {
    public static void main(String args[])
    int total_peeps;

    int win_position;
    Scanner myInput = new Scanner(System.in);
    System.out.println("How many people are playing the game?");
    total_peeps = myInput.nextInt();
    win_position = 0;
    for(int n=1; n<=total_peeps; n++){
    if (win_position == 0) {
    /*im not sure about this part*/
    } else {
    total_peeps %= n/5;
    System.out.println("If there are " + total_peeps
    + " Twilight fans, stand " + win_position
    + " to the left of the one with the sword.");

    How would you do this without a computer? How would you write the rules for where to stand in normal language, without code?
