My coding on this program is wrong, i know that, its not even doing what i want it too. I am trying to make a loop that allows the user to enter a number, and the program will add the number from 1- to the number entered. Example: if the user enters 5 it will add 1+2+3+4+5 and then stop after 5 because the usser entered 5. I need some help.
//step 1: Enter number > num.
//step 2: For/While index less than or equal to number entered. (goto 3)
//step 3: sum +=1(on first iteration)...
// sum +=2(on second iteration)...
// sum +=n(on nth iteration)... see the pattern?
//step 4: until index is no longer less than or equal to number entered.
