    Default Beginner Do-While Loop help please?

    Greetings, I am new to Java Programming

    I need to create a simply application that would display the results of two dice thrown five times and the total of those results. This is shown below in the attached file.

    The problem is, I have a do-while loop that loops 6 times. Inside the loop, I have 2 random.nextInt(5) that generate random numbers. But how can I output the total? How can I make a variable equal to the sum of the two random numbers if the two random numbers are located inside a do-while loop?

    Attached below is also the code I have thus far, please look at it and help me!

    Thanks in advance! and Sorry if I wrote it in a confusing fashion!

    (Attached below is both files: what it needs to look like, and what it currently looks like)

    If your loop needs to run a certain amount of times, you should look into for loops.
    And an array is a good place to store variables.
    English is not my native language (Typo alert).

    Welcome to the forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code in code or highlight tags and other useful info for new members.

    Copy/paste your code directly into a post between code or highlight tags per the above link. The graphics are hard to read and can't be used as graphics.
