: : I guess I don't understand problem 22 but, why isthe answer for number 22 is "Delta = 7"

: : if X = 3 in the problem and it is divided by 2, then x%2 would be 5, not one....therefore Delta would never change and should equal 0.....could someone please explain why the answer is Delta = 7!!!!!!

: : Thanks

: Delta is initialized to 0 and X to 3

: The modulus of 3/2 is 1

: Delta = Delta (0) + X (3) = 3

: X++ (4)

: The modulus of 4/2 is 0

: Delta = Delta (3) + X (4) = 7

: X++ (5)

: The modulus of 5/2 is 1 and not 0, so the operations will not be performed.

: Delta = 7

That doesn't answer my question...that's what's givin in the answer key....but thank you for responding......and never mind someone was able to explain it to me.
