    Default code is giving me a different result then expected..

    Hello again, I am having problems with writing a simple program to see if a number is divisible by 6.

    public void run() {
    		println("This program will display all numbers divisable by");
    		println(" 6 between 1 and 100.");
    		int x =1;
    		boolean divide =(x%6==0);
    		while (x<100) {
    			if (divide) {
    				println(+x+" Is divisable by 6.");
    			}  else {
                                    println(+x+"Is not divisable by 6");
                            }
    			x++;
     
    			}
    		}




    Any help would be appreciated, it is telling that every number is not divisable by 6???? Thanks

    The test is being done outside of the loop. It needs to be inside the loop.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
