Program that displays " 6 times" table

I'm very new to java and programming.

Using a for loop i want to write a program that displays a "6 times" multiplication table; something like this:

1 x 6 = 6
2 x 6 = 12
3 x 6 = 18
12 x 6 = 72

Can anyone show me how to do this please? Thanks.

Well, we try not to "show" you how to do it as much as get you to figure it out. First off, what is a for loop? What values do you want it to loop through? What do you want to do with these values?
If you have a firm understanding of the for loop, this program is pretty simple.

A FOR loop has an iterator variable- something that gets incremented each time through the loop (ie. 1,2,3 ...). Think about using it in the body of the code to help you out.

The following code will display the 2's, 3's 4's and 5's.

Hope this is a good example for you to build on.

public class Repetition
public static void main(String [ ] args)
int table, multiplier;

for (table = 2; table<5; table++)
//Print out the heading
System.out.println("\nMultiplication table for : "
+ table + " 's");
for(multiplier = 1; multiplier<=10; multiplier++)
System.out.print( (multiplier * table) + " \t");

System.out.println("\nLoops finished\n")
I agree. Here's the link:
