# How to determine the amount of Bars from 2-10

So ive tried a few things with my code and cant seem to have it pick how many lines to output, (from 2-10). I was wondering if anyone would know a way to have this happen, to clarify, I want to have the amount of outputs (2-10) to output the number of times the lines will show, Sorry if this sounds confusing i dont know how else to explain it, heres the code, thanks!

``````import java.util.*;

public class AddNumbers3 //names the program
{
public static void main(String[]args) //starts the main program
{
Scanner myInput = new Scanner(System.in);
//input
int n1, n2, n3, n4, n5, ;
String a = "*";
String b1 =

System.out.println("Tell me how many bars you would like from 2-20");
b1 = myInput.nextInt();
System.out.println("Tell me a number from 1-20");
n1 = myInput.nextInt();
System.out.println("Tell me a number from 1-20");
n2 = myInput.nextInt();
System.out.println("Tell me a number from 1-20");
n3 = myInput.nextInt();
System.out.println("Tell me a number from 1-20");
n4 = myInput.nextInt();
System.out.println("Tell me a number from 1-20");
n5 = myInput.nextInt();

//output
for (String i=0; i<b1; i++) //number of bars
{
System.out.print("*" * n1);
}
for (int i=0; i<n1; i++) // paste a certain amount of times
{
System.out.print(a);
}
System.out.println();
for (int i=0; i<n2; i++) // paste a certain amount of times
{
System.out.print(a);
}
System.out.println();
for (int i=0; i<n3; i++) // paste a certain amount of times
{
System.out.print(a);
}
System.out.println();
for (int i=0; i<n4; i++) // paste a certain amount of times
{
System.out.print(a);
}
System.out.println();
for (int i=0; i<n5; i++) // paste a certain amount of times
{
System.out.print(a);
}

}//end main
}//end class

Heres a bit of a newer versionâ€¦
