im a newbie programmer i need help in using looping constructs... any suggestions???

for (int i = 0; i < terminatorvalue; i++) { do some stuff }
while (somevalue < terminatorvalue) { do some stuff }
do { some stuff } while (somevalue < terminatorvalue);

These are examples of C/C++ looping constructs. Alter to your needs. Then post your code for your class problems. Until you make a reasonable attempt to solve them, this is as much help as you will get here.
