## Multiplying Values of an Array

I am trying to write an application that calculates product of odd integers 1-15 and then let the user determine the range of numbers to multiply after that. Here is what I have so far:

Java Code:
```public class PartTwo {

public static void main (String [] args){

int[] array = {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15};
array = 1;
array = 3;
array = 5;
array = 7;
array = 9;
array = 11;
array = 13;
array = 15;

}
}```
Where do I go from here? Thanks  Reply With Quote

## Ok, first of all, you defined the contents of your array, and then immediately changed them, so rethink that step. And, if all you want to do is calculate the product of a few integers, you would be better off with a loop, a variable for the result, and if you wish to let the user continue with the multiplication after the initial calculation, another variable that stores the last number to be multiplicated.

OK please give me an example of what the for loop would look like your talking about. I do not know a damn thing obviously an example would go a long way! Thanks

Java Code:
```public class PartTwo {

public static void main (String [] args){

int[] array = { 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15};
array = 1;
array = 3;
array = 5;
array = 7;
array = 9;
array = 11;
array = 13;
array = 15;

}
}```  Reply With Quote

4. ## For help on for loops, have a look here: The for Statement (The Java Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Language Basics)

It has examples and information.  Reply With Quote
