    Default Loop Structure

    1) I want to need to write a program using a while loop structure that will display the following output:

    I have 1 sheep
    I have 2 sheep
    I have 3 sheep
    I have 4 sheep
    I have 5 sheep
    I have 6 sheep

    2) I also need to write a complete program that displays the multiples of 5 from 0 to 50. I also need to use a for loop structure in the program. The output should be as follows

    0 :Multiple of 5
    1
    2
    3
    4
    5 :Multiple of 5
    6
    7

    ......
    50 :Multiple of 5

    Default Re: Loop Structure

    I have done the I have 1 sheep java script like:
    class Sheep{
    public static void main(String[] args){
    for(int i=1; i<1; i++){
    System.out.println("I have 1 sheep: ");
    System.out.println("I have 2 sheep: ");
    System.out.println("I have 3 sheep: ");
    System.out.println("I have 4 sheep: ");
    System.out.println("I have 5 sheep: ");
    System.out.println("I have 6 sheep: ");
    }
    }
    }


    I also tried this code which works

    class Sheep {
    public static void main(String[] args){
    int[] numbers =
    {1,2,3,4,5,6};
    for (int item : numbers) {
    System.out.println("I have 1 sheep");
    }
    }
    }


    But I am stuck how to display Multiple of 5

    --- Update ---

    The word multiple of 5 must be displayed every 5 lines for example 0 : Multiple of 5 then 1 , 2, 3, 4 does not display it but 5 will display it

    Default Re: Loop Structure

    The first example is functionally correct but you have a loop that does one iteration, which is the same as no loop at all. The second example just prints "I have 1 sheep" six times.

    Consider some modification of the first example but have the loop iterate 6 times and make use of the 'i' variable in your output.

    Also please wrap your posted code in code tags:


    [code]
    **YOUR CODE GOES HERE**
    [/code]

    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
