Sum of the digits of a three-digit number
We've got a puzzle for you that will require a little thinking. Or you can Google the solution if you aren't too keen on math puzzles. In any case, you will do well to understand the whys and wherefores. You need to implement a method that takes a three-digit number and returns the sum of that number's digits.

Mercantile intentions
Let's be honest with each other: a programmer's salary wasn't the last thing on your mind when you decided to start coding in Java? Here at the secret CodeGym center we are well aware of this and believe it's nothing to be ashamed of. In this task, let's cut to the chase: display "I want a big salary, and that's why I'm studying Java".

Financial expectations
Dreaming isn't bad for you, especially if your dreams are accompanied by actions (in our case, practical Java training). Let's use the keyboard to enter your expected hourly wage. Then display a message on the screen. No need to be humble. The main thing is to write the code correctly and think about algorithms.

Sum of the digits of a three-digit number makes no sense at all. Since we're finding the quotient: sum=6, number= 54 sum=6, number= 5 sum=1. How tf are you getting 15. Please make it make sense!!!!! It's extremely frustrating when I know my math is correct. Correct me if I'm wrong but quotient is the remainder? If not, it still doesn't make sense. sum=54, number= 54 sum=10, number=5 sum=1 Very annoying!

In the mercantile task, the "for" called is another method and can someone break it down for me? I mean the: for (int i = 0, i <10, i++){ }

For financial expectations task, why is it that we readLine with a String, yet the input is a number and the computer has no problem reading the integer as a string?

I added text to the Merchantile Intentions to ask for input "enter a dollar amount" which worked fine but until i removed it it wouldn't pass the task. I'm thinking because that put two println values in the code so it only read the first one and said it didn't match. mildly annoying

I found the instructions for "Mercantile intentions" a little bit misleading. I took "The text should consist of 10 lines" to mean that the output should be displayed in 10 lines (1 sentence spread out over 10 lines) instead of displaying the same output 10 times.
