    Default Noob Question: How to add spaces between each print

    So this is currently my code, I want it to add 3 spaces between each number printed.


    import java.util.Scanner;
     
    public class Addition
    {
        public static void main( String[] args )
        {
            Scanner input = new Scanner( System.in );
     
            int number1;
            int number2;
            int number3;
            int number4;
            int number5;    
     
            System.out.print( "Please enter your first integer: " );
            number1 = input.nextInt(); 
     
            System.out.print( "Please enter your second integer: " );
            number2 = input.nextInt(); 
     
            System.out.print( "Please enter your third integer: " );
            number3 = input.nextInt(); 
     
            System.out.print( "Please enter your fourth integer: " );
            number4 = input.nextInt(); 
     
            System.out.print( "Please enter your fifth integer: " );
            number5 = input.nextInt(); 
     
           System.out.print( number1 );
           System.out.print( number2 );
           System.out.print( number3 );
           System.out.print( number4 );
           System.out.print( number5 );
     
        }
    }

    You can use the escape sequence "\t" if you want.

    or you can combined them into one System.out and just add blank strings in between or "\t"

    System.out.print(number1 + "\t" + number2 + "\t"....number5

    or
    System.out.print(number1 + "  " + number2 + "  " + ....number5

    Okay thanks let me try this!

    --- Update ---

    Furthermore on that question (still learning a bit here, new to this code) what if they only had the option to type in one series of numbers, and i wanted it to separate each number with 3 spaces?

    import java.util.Scanner;

    public class Addition
    {
    public static void main( String[] args )
    {
    Scanner input = new Scanner( System.in );

    int number1;

    System.out.print( "Please enter your first integer: " );
    number1 = input.nextInt();



    System.out.print( number1 + " " );



    }
    }
