Hi there Programmers !

Im having a little trouble on my assignment homework i have, hopefully you guys can help me out here

the question is ..

Running on a particular treadmill, you burn 3.9 calories per minute. Create an application that uses a loop to display the number of calories burned after 10,15,20,25,30 minutes. Display the output in a ListBox control.

heres what i have for my coding so far...

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace WindowsFormsApplication1
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        public Form1()

        private void calculateButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            int minutes;
            int calories;

            for (minutes = 10; minutes <= 30; minutes = minutes + 5);       

              calories = minutes * 3.9;

am i on the right track ??

I dont know what comes after that ...

thanks for the help

Unfortunately we can't help you with your homework. You should ask your teacher or classmates for any help you may need.

As mentioned, we won't help with homework, but we can help maybe break the problem down. At any rate, the way you have done it is one way to do it. You could also start looping at 10, and just display the total if minutes is divisible by 10 with no remainders (think mod division).

This is a verys simple assignment with a very simple loop. Do not over think it.
