    Default how do i make the integer limited to 10

    my code allows you to enter integers but unlimited how can i restrict it to only ten

    Java Code:
    import java.util.*;
    public class SumPositiveNegative
    public static void main(String [] args)
    //initialise variables
    int counter=0; //used to count number of inputs by operator
    int numbers;//the number keyed in by operator
    int sumAll=0; //total of all numbers keyed in
    int sumPos=0; //total positive number keyed in
    int sumNeg=0; //total negative numbers keyed in
    //initialise input display
    Scanner keyIn = new Scanner (;
    //start of input code display on output
    System.out.println("Enter 10 integers: ");
    //while what is keyed in is less than 10 do this
    numbers = keyIn.nextInt();//next number
    counter++; //counter increased by 1
    sumAll = sumAll + numbers; // add the number keyed in to sumAll
    if(numbers > 0) //if positive number keyd in do this
    sumPos = sumPos + numbers;//add the number keyed in to sumPos
    else //if negative, <0, do this
    sumNeg = sumNeg + numbers;//add the number keyed in to sumNeg
    //output total: positive, negative and sum
    System.out.println("Sum of the positive numbers: " + sumPos);
    System.out.println("Sum of the negative numbers: " + sumNeg);
    System.out.println("Sum of all the numbers: " + sumAll);
    many Thanks Andy.

    It seems like you know what you have to do (in involves an if statement or a do/while loop of some kind, or just capping the value), but you're looking for a way around it. There's no way around it.
