    Default Need help with algorithms in looping

    Had issues with looping percentages, trying to increment a certain value by ten percent untill it reaches a certain point. HELP PLEASE!!!!!

    package sampleTest;

    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class random {
    public static void main(String[]args){
    int level = 1;
    //double bash = 15;
    double increment_bash;
    Scanner input = new Scanner(;
    System.out.println("Enter the percentage: ");
    double percentage = input.nextDouble();

    System.out.println("Enter the damage: ");
    double bash2 = input.nextDouble();

    while(level <= 45){
    double bash3;
    bash3 = ((bash2 * percentage) + bash2);

    System.out.println("Current level " + level);
    System.out.println("Current damage for that level is: " + bash3);

    In the body of your loop, that values of bash and percentage never change, so the value of bash3 never changes, i.e. the same value is calculated over and over again.

    kind regards,
