Hi,
Try to print out as many values,so that you see wats taking place.I've reduced the limits of both the loops to 5,for readibility,just run this example and try to understand how the loop follow takes place:

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.

Thanks,

Pete
