a while loop
Hello
So I need a while loop, what I have are some fields:
An integer x, another integer b, a maximum limit, and a minimum limit (all ints).
What I need to do is:
When x is smaller than the minimum limit, I need to multiply x by 6, and add 2 to the integer b. I need to keep doing this, until x is between the minimum and maximum limits, then stop and print out the number.
I am confused how to do this.
What I have so far is this:
Java Code:while(x < minimum) { x = x*6; b = b + 2; }
Any help would be much appreciated

Thanks, okay I'm now supposed to add an extra bit which will stop the while loop either when x is big enough, or, when b reaches a certain number, (whichever is sooner). how can I do that?
