adding numbers
i am trying to add every number (i had 141062). i broke them apart, and convert them to ints. then i can add them. am i going about this the right way? here is what i have so far:
Java Code:for (count = 0; i<doubledDigits.length(); i++) { numbersToAdd2 = doubledDigits.charAt(i); // gets 2610 as a string numbers4 = Integer.parseInt(numbersToAdd2); //string==>int numbers3 = numbers3 + numbers4; }

Are you trying to calculate digit sum of a number?
Looks like it's correct though, does it compile and run?

yes, i am.
sorry, maybe this is better?...
Java Code:for (count = 0; i<doubledDigits.length(); i++) { numbers2 = doubledDigits.charAt(i); numbers3 = numbers2 + numbers3; }

It should work if you loop through, parse each and add it to the sum.
You can also do it with a number directly using / and %.

here is what i have:
Java Code:for (i = 0; i < lengthCC ; i += 2) // get every other number (start 1 from the right) { nextDigit = (Character.getNumericValue(creditCardNumber.charAt(i))); doubledNextDigit = (nextDigit*2); // multiply that number at i by 2 numbers = Integer.toString (doubledNextDigit); doubledDigits = doubledDigits + numbers; // doubledDigits is in string form... } System.out.println("Your double digits are: " + doubledDigits); //WORKS!!! (261014) String string = ""; for (count = 0; i<doubledDigits.length(); i++) { numbersToAdd2 = doubledDigits.charAt(i); // gets 2610 as a string numbers4 = Integer.parseInt(numbersToAdd2); //string==>int numbers3 = numbers3 + numbers4; }
numbersToAdd2 was initialized as a int... doubledDigits is a string... so numbersToAdd2 should be an int, right?Last edited by droidus; 03092011 at 04:25 AM.

In the original part try using the strong substring method instead. Then parse to integer and add it to the sum. What is the goal of the first loop?

to double each of the digits. i then set it to a string
i did this:
Java Code:String string = ""; String doubledDigits = ""; int numbers5 = 0; int numbers3 = 0; for (count = 0; i<doubledDigits.length(); i++) { string = doubledDigits.substring(i); // gets 2610 as a string numbers5 = Integer.parseInt(string); //string==>int numbers3 = numbers3 + numbers5; }
