Okay, those print statements sure help out alot. I understand it now. For each one time the outside loop runs the inner loop will run 5 times. So basiclly I can multiply the number of times the outerloop runs by the number of times the inner loop runs to figure out how many times the inner loop will run. If that makes sense.. Thankyou for your help.


I agree. Here's the link:
