    Default Help with a very beginner java program creation

    This is the demand:

    Write a program that asks the user for a positive integer no greater than 15. 'Hie program
    should then display a square on the screen using the character 'X*. The number entered by
    the user will be the length of each side of the square. For example, if the user enters 5, the
    program should display the following:
    xxxxx
    xxxxx
    xxxxx
    xxxxx
    xxxxx
    If the user enters 8, the program should display the following:
    xxxxxxxx
    xxxxxxxx
    xxxxxxxx
    xxxxxxxx
    xxxxxxxx
    xxxxxxxx
    xxxxxxxx
    xxxxxxxx

    Looks like the program should use some loops.
    What have you tried?

    I know that it has to use nested loops that's for sure. Keep in mind that my teacher doesn't teach very well and hardly anyone in the class knows much.

    Have you made a list of the steps the code needs to do to solve the problem?
    You'll need that before trying to write any code.

    Also take a look at the tutorial about loops:
    The for Statement (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Language Basics)
    The while and do-while Statements (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Language Basics)
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
