Formatting an output

I have written a program that calculates the first 100 pentagonal numbers. The problem is that I am supposed to output the answers with 10 answers on each line of the output. I have no idea how to do this. I am guessing that I would want to write a loop and format the output in the loop??? Is any other way to format the output without writing another loop? Here is what I have so far...

Thanks for letting me know and I will be sure to do this in the future.

I don't know why your guess involves a loop. The normal way to do something in Java is to call a method which does that thing.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
