  • Summing Numbers

    Can anyone tell me why this doesn't sum numbers or tell me of a better way to do it.
    x = x
    for T = 1 to 8
    x= x +5
    print x +5
    delay 1
    x = x
    next T

    it seems that the numbers should be 5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40.

    print "The total for the 5 numbers should be ";x (40).
    My problem is, when I get to the "x" above, the numbers are not added together.

    My goal is to write a routine to sum several numbers. And at the end,
    I've been struggling with this for 3 hours and could not get it to work.

    Keith,

    What you are asking for and the information supplied in your "non-working"
    demo contradict each other.

    In english (not code or psuedo code) describe what your are
    trying to do and we'll work from there.

      Keith, by now you may be smacking your head against a wall and going dooh!
      Nevertheless, your problem is that you are incrementing the value of x by 5 before printing it. Just "Print x" instead of "Print x+5"and it will be fine.

        Code:
        x = x
        While it's nice someone has finally posited[ yes, p-o-s-i-t-e-d] something on which we can all agree, this statement is totally superfluous and does nothing.

          Eliminate Print x+5 just print x.
          Eliminate x=x as x will always equal x
