    the second parameter of your for-loops is playing a trick on you. Read up: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/java/nutsandbolts/for.html and note the definition: "When the termination expression evaluates to false, the loop terminates." since j=0 to start, j>i is already false, so the loop never got executed.
