Welcome to the Ranch

Please avoid tabs for indenting, and use the code button. I have edited your post partially and you can see how much better it looks. If you use Eclipse (which is probably a bad idea at this beginning stage), you can set options to convert tabs to 4 spaces automatically. You are probably better off using a text editor, however.
I think you will only understand it if you go through it with a pencil and paper. Try this simplified version first, and you will see how a loop runs once.Once you have worked out how that simpler version prints 3 thrice, you will find it easier to work out how the two loops work.

What part did you not understand? What did you expect that code to do?

Try this:


Does that help? The outer loop says, "Do whatever is in my body, 5 times." The body is printing i and then running the inner loop, which says, "do whatever is in my body, 3 times. And that body is simply printing j.

nested for loops are like old-fashioned mechanical car odometers. The inner most one must go all the way around before the next outer one clicks over one...

New-fangled odometers are like that too, 'cep'n that it's electronomical instead of mechanicated.
