    Default someone please be kind enough demonstrate a code like this......

    This is the work

    - From the main method call a method named sumOfDigits(), without passing any parameters
    - Create a method named sumOfDigits()
    - In the sumOfDigits() method declare the variable N of type int
    - Assign the value 100 to the variable N.
    - Using the sum of digits formula: (1 + N)*(N/2)
    print the total amount of the sum of digits from 1 to 100

    __________________________________________________ __________________________

    ive tried using

    public void sumOfNumbers() {

    formula = (1+100)*(2/100)
    }


    then I do system print (formula) but it keeps displaying 0

    ive been messing around with it also. this is my code so far

    What is your question?

    do system print (formula) but it keeps displaying 0
    Where does the code change the value so it would not be 0?

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with
    [code=java]
    <YOUR CODE HERE>
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    First of all, that is not the formula for a sum of digits. It is the formula to calculate the sum of the first N positive integers.

    Secondly, and more importantly, I can't see where you have written code that implements the given formula. In fact, I can't see in your post where you have done a single thing that is specified by the assignment.

    Why (oh, why) did you post all of the other stuff?

    Bottom line: Read the assignment. Follow it exactly. If you don't get the right answer (or if the program doesn't compile for some reason), post your entire code with stuff needed for the part of the assignment that you don't understand.


    Explain what you don't understand about what happens when you compile or run the code.



    Cheers!

    Hi, the formula is ((N+1)*N)/2. In this first the jvm calculate the (N+1) ,after it multiply the result of (N+1) with N and it perform the division opertation on result (N+1)*N with 2.

    hence formula is

    formula = ((1+100)*100)/2;
