# Thread: Help with math tables

1. ## Help with math tables

Hi guys,

I have a project at college to write a program that will produce a mathamatics table, for example: -

user will input the times table number ie, 5

and also the user will input the amount of lines, ie 3,

so the result will be: -

1 x 5 = 5
2 x 5 = 10
3 x 5 = 15

I dont want you to write the program for me, but some pointers of what to do would be most helpfull....

Maybe a tutorial or something...

Thanks alot guys

2. Well you're definately going to need a loop, probaly one that might look something like this:

for(x=0;x<=number_of_lines;x++)

I hope that helps you get started, if not say so.

3. Cheers for getting back to me,

would x be the times table number or would i assign the
times table number to x?

4. No you'd need to have another variable with the number who's times table you want. Remeber this though, every time you go through the loop x will increase by one so if it's 3 times and I used this loop it would look like this:

Code:
```int numberOfLines = 5
int x;
int number;

for(x=0;i<=numberOfLines;x++)
{
cout << x;
}```
would output this:

0
1
2
3
4
5

Now, what do yo uwant to do with that?

5. Yippeeeee, got it!

Cant thank you enough mate!

its been driving me mad for ages

Cheers
