What is Repetition A simple example: Suppose you are to write a program that read 10 numbers from the key board and add them together. Approach1: int number; int sum =0; // read the first number number = scan.nextInt(); sum = sum + number // sum +=number; // read the second number number = scan.nextInt(); sum = sum + number // sum +=number; …… continue until we add all ten numbers Janaka Balasooriya CSE 110, Arizona State University Properties of this computation Repeat the same set of statements several time (10 times in this case) Towards a General Approach •Initial state (read the first number) • Upper limit : read the 10th number • Perform the same set of operations starting from the initial state until we reach the upper limit
A Generic Syntax for the Repetition Janaka Balasooriya CSE 110, Arizona State University Perform following set of operations for 10 times number = scan.nextInt(); sum = sum + number // sum +=number; Strategy: • We need to keep a counter that indicated how many times that we execute this set. initially counter is set to 0 each time when we execute the above set of statement we increment the counter by 1 counter = 0; number = scan.nextInt();

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
