Howdy,

I have the following code... which outputs fine like this:

1
2
3
and so on...

I need it like this
3 2 1
6 5 4
down to 200

so 200 to 1.. backwards!

Any ideas? Thanks a lot

It is not sufficient to just provide an example because we don't know what the rules are. You'll need to provide a description of the problem as well, such as...
  • Display the numbers from 1 to 200(not inclusive)
  • Display three numbers per line in descending order

    Hey - i need to have counter that prints out, in reverse order, every multiple of 3 between 1 and 200..
    Make sense?

    You can create a for loop that increments by 3 by using i+=3.

    First off you don't need numIndex at all, you can just print the loop value directly.
    Secondly, you'll need two *nested* loops, one to count down by 3 (i-=3) and the other to count down from 3.
    Then a println that combines the two loop counter values.
