Question About Nested Loops

I was told to write a small program that finds the floor of logb(X). I took the main functionality of the program to create what I pasted below. In the program I have below, the base and x-value are already there - it's just for the concept.

I was told to use nested loops. However, I feel that the way I did it is fine. Would it be better if I used a nested loop? I'm not sure I would know exactly how to go about doing it, thought I'm sure there are a lot of ways to do it.

If your assignment was to write a program that finds the floor of logb(X), then the method you use is up to you.
If your assignment was to write a program that uses nested loops, then you need to use nested loops.
You need to ask whoever gave you the assignment whether what you have done is okay.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
