# Thread: BruceForce Method and Modulus HELP!

1. ## BruceForce Method and Modulus HELP!

I was wondering how to take the modulus of every number from 11 through 20 getting a successful run of modulus values of zero for a particular number using a while loop. Thank you.

2. ## Re: BruceForce Method and Modulus HELP!

Yes this can be done (if I'm understanding you correctly). Why not give it a try and see what you get? Or if you've already done this, what is not working for you? What is wrong with your code?

3. ## Re: BruceForce Method and Modulus HELP!

I just need help getting started sir. Im not that familiar with while loops. Like i know how to do it individually doing one by one. But a while loop is the way to go.
```int i = number;

int j = 11;

int k = i % j;
System.out.println(number + "%" + j + " is " + k);```

Result:
`232792560%11 is 0`

If you can get it going on the right path. I have to finish this before i go to bed. So anything would help! thanks

--- Update ---

I have to prove that taking the modulus of 232792560 from numbers 11-20 results in getting a zero using a while loop.

--- Update ---

So far but its wrong:
```

int start = 11;
int end_value = 20;

while (start <= end_value)
start++;

System.out.println(number % start);```

Result:
```
0```

I need help!

your Result 232792560%11 is 0 is correct.

What you exactly want. and What is wrong with you code?
can you explain clearly?
