I’m doing the 30 Days of Code on HakerRank.com. I’m Day 5: Loops, yikes! It’s been a couple of days…lets dive into it.

This challenge is categorized as Easy, Max Score is 30, and the Success Rate is 98.66%.

The Objective is:

In this challenge, we will use loops to do some math.

note: for some reason the *less than or equal to symbol is showing as the £, British Pound symbol, so i just wrote it out the (less than or equal to symbol) in parentheses.*

The Task is:

Given an integer, *n*, print its first *10* multiples.

Each multiple *n* *x* *i* (where *1 (less than or equal to symbol) i (less than or equal to symbol) 10* ) should be printed on a new line in the form: n x i = result.

Example:

*n = 3*

The printout should look like this:

3 x 1 = 3

3 x 2 = 6

3 x 3 = 9

3 x 4 = 12

3 x 5 = 15

3 x 6 = 18

3 x 7 = 21

3 x 8 = 24

3 x 9 = 27

3 x 10 = 30

Input Format

A single integer, *n*.

Constraints:

*2 (less than or equal to symbol) n (less than or equal to symbol) 20*

Output Format:

Print *10* lines of output; each line *i* (where *1 (less than or equal to symbol) i (less than or equal to symbol) 10*) contains the *result* of *n ´ i* in the form:

n x i = result.

Sample Input:

2

Sample Output:

2 x 1 = 2

2 x 2 = 4

2 x 3 = 6

2 x 4 = 8

2 x 5 = 10

2 x 6 = 12

2 x 7 = 14

2 x 8 = 16

2 x 9 = 18

2 x 10 = 20

Not much instruction is given.

Ok, so here is what is provided in the text editor on the website for JavaScript (Node.js):

// Everything in RED is hidden

‘use strict’;

process.stdin.resume();

process.stdin.setEncoding(‘utf-8’);

let inputString = ‘’;

let currentLine = 0;

process.stdin.on(‘data’, function(inputStdin) {

inputString += inputStdin;

});

process.stdin.on(‘end’, function() {

inputString = inputString.split(‘\n’);

main();

});

function readLine() {

return inputString[currentLine++];

}

// Everything is GREEN is what is supposed to be worked on.

function main() {

const n = parseInt(readLine().trim(), 10);

}

So we’re supposed to take a user input, initialize a loop with i = 0 and add two conditions i <= 10 and i++, then multiply i and n and console.log the result.

For this a simple for loop is gonna be used.

we’re gonna:

let i = 1

and then i be less than or equal to 10

and then i increment by 1.

The FOR LOOP will run until i is less than or equal to 10.

And maybe we console.log the arithmetic operations

So, let’s write it out in code.

Function main() {

const n = parseInt(readLine().trim(), 10);

for (let i = 1; i *(less than or equal to symbol)* 10; i++ ) {

console.log(`${n} x ${i} = ${n * i}`)

}

}

Wowzers, not bad.

I said it before and I’ll say it again:

I’m glad I started doing the 30 Days of Code on HakerRank.com.

I haven’t been consistent with trying the challenges everyday but after each challenge, I’m glad I do it. Hopefully, this gives me enough reason to remain consistent and finish within 25 days.

P.S. I earned my first start on HackerRank!
