i've recently started in UVA website and i can't find why it doesn't accept my code
this is the link of the problem :
and this is my code:
import java.util.Scanner;

public class Main {

public static void main(String[] args) {
Scanner input = new Scanner(;
while (input.hasNext()) {

long i = input.nextLong();
long j = input.nextLong();
int maxCount = 0;
int count;
long n;
for (long j2 = i; j2 <= j; j2++) {
count = 0;
n = j2;
while (n != 1) {
if (n % 2 != 0) {
n = 3 * n + 1;
} else {
n = n / 2;
if (count >= maxCount) {
maxCount = count;


System.out.println(i+" "+j+" "+maxCount);

What does this have to do with Android (which this forum is all about) ?

You should also post what the actual problem is. Folks here are unlikely to know what the UVA web site is or does, and what, exactly, you mean by "it doesn't accept my code".
