Hello:

I am trying to make an application which takes input of sets of 2 numbers and does a mathematical equation with them and displays the answer for each set.

However; I have been testing and testing this code:

I am using the input asCode:/* CSC1140@ 07611201 74kzYkXl 10523 */ #include <stdio.h> int main() { int c,n,a; while(c = getchar() != EOF) { int sum=0; scanf("%d",&n); scanf("%d",&a); int i; for(i=1; i<=n; i++) { int calc=0,x=0,final_a = a; for(x=1;x<i;x++) { final_a = final_a * a; } calc = i * final_a; sum = sum + calc; } printf("N:%d A:%d\n",n,a); printf("%d\n",sum); } }

The output displays the numbers as it is supposed to; but gives the wrong answers. So I debugged my code and printed out N and A for each set and found out that the "a" variable is not being correctly assigned.Code:3 3 4 4

The "a" value seems to be assigned 4 in the first set (a is supposed to be 3).

the n is correctly assigned.

Maybe it is a really simple mistake I just cant see... any help would be appreciated!
