    Default Beginner pleasee help with java code

    Restriction the only structure my program is allowed to use for storage, is ArrayLists.
    The link to the problem I'm trying to solve is Powered by Google Docs

    So far what i got is this,(note that im not putting in the ";" yet)

       k1 = k1 / 5
       k2 = k2 / 5
       k3 = k3 / 5;
     
       int count = 0;
     
     
       //* HERE:
       //  Use the k1, k2, k3, list[], etc., to examine and compute
       //  possible combinations for "X Op Y = Z", but use list[] to shortcut
       //  your combinations so your program will not examine all 31 billion.
     
       System.out.println("Possible solutions = " + count);
     
    } //end main
     
     
     
    public static int calcsegments(int i)
    {
       //* HERE:
       //  Compute and return the number of segments in the number i,
       //  where i is of course something in the range -999 to 999.
    }  
     
     
     
    } //end class

    i basically need help on the parts with the "*Here" on it. I think the rest is correct but i really dont know how to count all possible combinations depending on the number they enter for k1, k2, k3

    1. Enclose the code in
     tags
    2. Format the code properly, either use some editor.
    3. Read this
    4. And what is the problem?

    First review this ArrayList and array first

    then comeback with your probabilities. You need to figure the probability math some links for it.

    I created to ArrayList[23] in order to store the number of calculator segments required to show for -999 to 999. For example if were checking 8, the number of segments required would be 7 and so we store it into list[8]. Can you come up with a code to help me do that or to examine and compute
    the possible combinations for "k1 Op k2 = k3"..where OP is either + - * /

    you didn't read the document otherwise you would find that ArrayList[23] really does not relate to anything, please read then come back with some useful questions.
