Not sure what this question means.

An IDE is just a GUI shell over git commands. IntelliJ also has a console window where it shows the actual commands that are executed for git. While using an IDE or not is purely up to one's personal choice, there are a few advantages such as warnings and wizards to do common tasks for git. Intellij also does some code clean up and formatting if configured.

Hope this helps
Back to the question at hand. If the loop was indeed valid from 0 to 100000, my answer would vary depending on my mood. If I was in a good mood, I would divulge into StringBuilder.
If not, I would question the interview about why the said requirement was valid from a business stand point.
I don't see any usecase where a program would require a string of numbers like "...50005001500250035004..." without any delimiter.

That is a very tricky question !!
My answer is Yes, only if you're a person who really cherishes drinking that.

Here's my answer:

Is it just me or ... No one read the loop statement !!??!

If you open up a different terminal or even terminate jshell and start it again in the same terminal, the values are no longer present.

First of all PostTextNotScreenshots <--  It's a link
If you are having trouble knowing where to put the code, I strongly suggest against using a UI program as a learning exercise for learning java.
The JTextArea has a simple method called setText that will set the text displayed on screen. It also has a setEditable method to disallow users from editing the text.
Next, if you have trouble on how to load text from a file, I suggest looking at oracle tutorials <-- It's a link

Let's leave code aside, the above statement can be simplified to : Every person needs 125gr of rice, 50gr of shrimp and 100gr of squids.
Does it now help with the calculations ?

Side note, as per wiki (Gram) a gram is denoted with "g". I have seen variants of "gm" but this is the first time I see "gr".

I am a bit late to the party But I found this thread interesting.
My thought process usually works around enums for such types of problems. Even if you get inputs as Strings. You can have helper methods to convert those strings to objects. Here's how I would create the data structures ...

Enum for Suits:
Enum for Ranks:
Class for Card:Example usage based on strings: Once well defined data structures are in place, you can do any logic you want that fits your requirements. I'll leave that to you

Working on a proof of concept hobby game for mobile.

Here's a test sandbox stage for anyone interested in gaming :

I am still thinking of a name for my game. You can play it on any modern browser that supports wasm.
