    Hi,

    This one is subtle and took me a minute or two of looking.

    There is a difference between

    i=+10 // Assigns the value 10 to i == (i = 10)

    and

    i += 10 // increments by 10

    This is the reason for the infinite loop.

    There is another bug with the program regarding the termination point.

    Sorry I think I might have confused you. I mean that the for loop will terminate early the way you have written it.

    Have you Ran it since correcting the other issue?


    INPUT

    Please Enter Treadmill Type:
    a
    Please Enter Number of Minutes X:
    40


    OUTPUT

    Calories burned after 10 minutes : 39
    Calories burned after 20 minutes : 78
    Calories burned after 30 minutes : 117


    Your current for loop doesn't continue until 40.

    I am not trying to be difficult, but debugging skills are very important. Do you use an IDE or run the program from the command line?
