This would work pretty much the same way and might give you a better idea of what's going on:

Line 13 is what I would call "silly stuff you can but shouldn't do in Java" ... if I were in church. Otherwise, it'd be in more language

In the main() method, i and j are local variables. And in the test() method, you have another local variable named i (the argument variable).

The fact that the test() method is static doesn't have any impact on the variables i and j.

Oracle's tutorial page Understanding Class Members explains what 'static' means.
