    Default Help with a class (only receiving the last value instead of all)

    The code below, getPlayerCards(int times) shuffles the cards from the array (3) times and return the (3) values of shuffleCards, showPlayerCardValue() is suppose to take those (3) numbers and check with the if conditions to come up with a total, my problem is that, it's only checking the 3rd value, not first and second.

    ex:

    Welcome to Thirty3
     
    Would you like to play (Y/Q)? y
     
    Your cards: 6 of Hearts, 4 of Hearts, 7 of Spades, (Total 7)

    It's not adding the values of 6 of Hearts and 4 of Hears, the total should be 6+4+7 = 17

     public int getPlayerCards(int times)
        {
                System.out.print("Your cards: ");
                for(int b=1; b<=times; b++)
                {
                    shuffleCards = rand.nextInt(cards.length-1) + 0;
     
                    System.out.print(cards[shuffleCards] + ", ");                       
     
                    showCard = showCard.concat(cards[shuffleCards].concat(", "));                
                }
     
            return shuffleCards;
        }
     
        public int showPlayerCardValue()
        {   
                    if(shuffleCards >=4 && shuffleCards <= 7)
                    {
                        playerPoints = 2;
                    }
     
                    if(shuffleCards >=8 && shuffleCards <= 11)
                    {
                        playerPoints = 3;
                    }
     
                    if(shuffleCards >=12 && shuffleCards <= 15)
                    {
                        playerPoints = 4;
                    }
     
                    if(shuffleCards >=16 && shuffleCards <= 19)
                    {
                        playerPoints = 5;
                    }
     
                    if(shuffleCards >=20 && shuffleCards <= 23)
                    {
                        playerPoints = 6;
                    }

    Have you tried debugging the code by adding some println statements to print out the values of variables as the code executes so you can see where the code is going wrong?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Yes, It's only printing the values of the last card

    --- Update ---

    I just put inside the for loop, the count works now

        public int getPlayerCards(int times)
        {
                System.out.print("Your cards: ");
                for(int a=1; a<=times; a++)
                {
                    shuffleCards = rand.nextInt(cards.length-1) + 0;
     
                    System.out.print(cards[shuffleCards] + ", ");                       
     
                    showCard = showCard.concat(cards[shuffleCards].concat(", "));     
     
                    if(shuffleCards >=4 && shuffleCards <= 7)
                    {
                        playerPoints = 2;
                    }
     
                    if(shuffleCards >=8 && shuffleCards <= 11)
                    {
                        playerPoints = 3;
                    }
     
                    if(shuffleCards >=12 && shuffleCards <= 15)
                    {
                        playerPoints = 4;
                    }
     
                    if(shuffleCards >=16 && shuffleCards <= 19)
                    {
                        playerPoints = 5;
