I need help with my assi. I don't even understand what the questionis . Q. write a program that will input an integer valve and calculate the value of nBr where nBr is the smallest integer such that 1^2 + 2^2 + 3^2 +....... nBr^2 >= value
( these are square of one and two .....)
for example if you input 50, then the program would display 5 since 1+4+9+16 = 30, but 1+4+9+16+25= 55

So can you do the very first step, and the very last step?

- read an integer value
- and display it
?

These things are built one step at a time. Don't look at the whole assignment, imagine smaller parts.

well here is the design that I came up with

Value: = 0;
number := 0;
While(value <= number)
Multiply number x number
Add 1 to number
Until (value == number);

does it look ok?

> Multiply number x number
And do what with it?

> While(value <= number)
> Until (value == number);
Huh?

You need
- a loop variable counting 1 2 3 ....
- a sum for 1^2 + 2^2 etc
- a target value (read from the user)

ok here what I've done sofar but I'm still running into errors
