Hi. I have a problem. I am totally beginner in Java. Now I'm learning Loops. please help me!

a+b+c=15 then a, b, c=? (PS: a, b and , c are not equal each other)

how can I solve this Problem Please help me?

a+b+c=15; then a , b and c are not equal each other. And a, b and c must be from 1 to 9. then find a=? b=? c=?

i think i should use 3 for loops. but i can't solve.

it can implement

1+5+9=15

1+6+8=15

1+8+6=15

1+9+5=15

2+4+9=15

2+5+8=15

2+6+7=15

2+8+5=15

2+9+4=15

................

...............

9+2+4=15

9+4+2=15

Help ?

all you can do is provide every possible solution. Here is a way to do it with loops. As you can see it starts with a= 0, it then enters the "b" loop with b = 0 lastly it enters the "c" loop starting with c = 0.

It will loop through for every possible combination of values. And print the ones that add up to 15.

A=1; while(A <= 9) { B = 1; while(B <= 9) { C = 1; while(C <= 9) { if(A + B + C == 15) { System.out.print ln("A:" + A + " B:" + B + " C:" + C); } C++; } B++; } A++; }
