question
Use the variables k and total to write a while loop that computes the sum of the squares of the first 50 counting numbers, and associates that value with total. Thus your code should associate 1*1 + 2*2 + 3*3 +... + 49*49 + 50*50 with total. Use no variables other than k and total.

question

question
In this exercise, use the following variables: i,lo, hi, and result. Assume that lo and hi each are associated with an int and that result refers to 0. Write a while loop that adds the integers from lo up through hi (inclusive), and associates the sum with result. Your code should not change the values associated with lo and hi. Also, just use these variables: i,lo, hi, and result.

question
Assume there is a variable, h already associated with a positive integer value. Write the code necessary to compute the sum of the perfect squares whose value is less than h, starting with 1. (A perfect square is an integer like 9, 16, 25, 36 that is equal to the square of another integer (in this case 3*3, 4*4, 5*5, 6*6 respectively).) Associate the sum you compute with the variable q. For example, if h is 19, you would assign 30 to q because the perfect squares (starting with 1) that are less than h are: 1, 4, 9, 16 and 30==1+4+9+16.
q = 0 i = 1 while (i * i < h) : q += i * i i += 1
question
Assume there is a variable, h already associated with a positive integer value. Write the code necessary to count the number of perfect squares whose value is less than h, starting with 1.

Assign the sum you compute to a variable q For example, if h is 19, you would assign 4 to q because there are perfect squares (starting with 1) that are less than h are: 1, 4, 9, 16.

question
Assume there are two variables, k and m, each already associated with a positive integer value and further assume that k's value is smaller than m's.

(A perfect square is an integer like 9, 16, 25, 36 that is equal to the square of another integer (in this case 3*3, 4*4, 5*5, 6*6 respectively).) Associate the number you compute with the variable q. For example, if k and m had the values 10 and 40 respectively, you would assign 3 to q because between 10 and 40 there are these perfect squares: 16, 25, and 36,.

question

For example, if h is 4, you would assign 30 to q because the first 4 perfect squares (starting with 1) are: 1, 4, 9, 16 and 30==1+4+9+16.
