    Question pseudo code and algorithms

    Using Pseudo code, design an algorithm that can sum the digits of an integer in
    the range 100-999. For example, given a number 734, the answer would be 7 + 3
    + 4, which equals 14. Given 103 the sum would be 1 + 0 + 3, which equals 4.
    Hint: in order to extract each digit (units, tens, hundreds etc.) from a given
    number, think about using the division (/) and, or modulus of that number by
    10 or multiples of 10.
    Additional marks are available for an algorithm that can deal with any size of
    number.
    2. Complete the outline Java class below by,
    Using the algorithm above to implement the sumOfDigits value method, which
    accepts a number as a parameter and returns the sum of its digits.
    Implement the main method that should prompt the user to input an integer
    number then print the number and a message stating whether the sum of its
    digits is equal to 10. Note - the user should be forced to enter a number between
    100 and 999 inclusive. Sample program executions might look as follows

    Input Number: 730
    The sum of the digits of 730 is 10 and is equal to 10.

    Input Number: 198
    The sum of the digits of 198 is 18 and is NOT equal to 10.

    // Sample outline class.
    public class Sum
    {
    public static int sumOfDigits int number)
    {
    // complete method
    }
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
    // complete method
    }
    }

    If the number is in a String, the String class has methods for accessing each character in the String.

    can you explain that in more detail please?

    public class Sum
    {
    public static int sumOfDigits int number)
    {
    // complete method
    }
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
    // complete method
    }
    }

    that's the code started but i don't know what methods to put in

    First you need to make a list in pseudo code of what the program will do. When you have the list of steps, then use that to write the code.
