Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok thanks, my questions though is does the program run one iteration of the first while function then go onto the second and run all interations until it is complete then go back and run another interation of the first while function and repeat the process of the second??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i guess a better way of wording this is that the computer won't go past line 35 until the conditions of the while statements are correct. i understand that but once the it gets to the second while statement won't the second while statement be ran 12 times before it returns to the first one on line 15 then it adds 10 to monthly payments and runs through all the loops again

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok 1st of all u dont need the 1st while since u iterate balance in the 2nd. so try to fix this and see how it goes. i am now testing for correct results. did they give any test cases? so we know we are getting the correct results?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you always have to put questions and steps in paper...it helps a lot! it is some kind of pseudocode that you are creating when putting ur thoughts in paper. if you need any other help just ask. (if you need i have an other version of this with for loops).
