Help with java math... SOLVED
Java Code:import java.util.Scanner; public class Sphere { public static void main(String [] a) { System.out.println("This program prints surface area and volume"); System.out.println("of spheres for radii ranging from 10 to N,"); System.out.print("in increments of 10. Please input the value of N: "); Scanner userInput = new Scanner(System.in); int valueOfN = userinput.nextInt(); double pi = 3.14; System.out.println(""); System.out.println("\t\tSurface"); System.out.println("r\tArea\tVolume"); System.out.println(""); for(int r = 10; r <= valueOfN; r += 10) { System.out.print(r + "\t" + (4*pi*(r*r)) + "\t" + (4/3*pi*(r*r*r))); } } }

4/3 == 1 because both 4 and 3 are integers so integer division is used. Use 4.0/3.0 instead; oh, b.t.w. the Math class has a better approximation for pi.
kind regards,
Jos

Seems your question is not a valid one, it's 0.75 x pi x r^{3} or other way?

do "4/3.0" or "4/(double) 3" or something similar. bare numbers in code without decimals are integers and integer math can only produce integers, thereby making 4/3 = 1.
Edit: Man, am I slow.
