Java math help needed

 P: n/a I need to recreate the following formula in java: INT((A2^3 + B2^3) / 100)) + MOD((A2^3 + B2^2), 100) Can someone show me how to do this in java? -Thanks Jul 17 '05 #1

Mod is % in java. so int i = 10 %5 = 0. 11 % 5 = 1 (if i remember correctly) To do powers you simply do Math.pow() look it up in your java api docs. Look for the Math class. Jul 17 '05 #2

 P: n/a int answer = ((int)(pow(a2,3) + pow(b2,3)) / 100) + ((pow(a2,3) + pow(b2,2)) % 100); Fred wrote in message news:... I need to recreate the following formula in java: INT((A2^3 + B2^3) / 100)) + MOD((A2^3 + B2^2), 100) Can someone show me how to do this in java? -Thanks Jul 17 '05 #3

 P: n/a All you need to do is to spend 10 mins reading your textbook, rather than posting your homework and waiting somebody to do it for you.

Mod is % in java. so int i = 10 %5 = 0. 11 % 5 = 1 (if i remember correctly) Nitpick: % in Java is actually remainder, not Modulus. True Modulus produces a result from 0 to the divisor-1. % can produce negative results. "the % operator is not a true mod operator, but computes the remainder, which may be negative" http://java.sun.com/docs/books/jls/assert-spec.html To do powers you simply do Math.pow() look it up in your java api docs.
