    Question simple programming issue!

    I am trying to make a program where the powers show up in table format and cant seem to get it right! this is what I have so far:

    int main(void)
    {
    int n;

    printf(" \tA Table of Powers\t \n");
    printf("Integer\t\tSquare\t\3rd power\t4th power\t5th power\n");
    printf("--------\t--------\t--------\t--------\t/n");

    for (n=1; n<=4; ++n);


    any help?!

    I suppose you should count (1) the number of columns you have (2) the number of \t characters you use (3) the number of -------- things you have. Once you have the headers set, then you need to print your data keeping your \t's in mind.

    You have five numbers you want to print, so print them.

    Code:
    for (n=1; n<=4; ++n);

    Sure it does, but:
    Code:
    n = 5;
    is what I'd use
