# Square of a number

• 5
• Locked
There are several ways to square a number. For example, some people write a number and then draw a square around it. This method is used by people who haven't studied anywhere. Everybody else has to multiply, remember the table of squares, ... or use a program. Your program should display the square of 5.

This kinda came out of nowhere ! lol --- a Method is a function in JAVA that is in a Class performing some actions. See the int a defined in the function name defined as int sqr ? that's pretty much a variable known as a - reusable - Parameter. The function is launched --or called- to do something -- above it -- and "passes in" the argument which is 5. The 5 aligns with that variable int a; and it doesn't need to be defined nor assigned separately. This is huge to understand in all programming languages. and it's fuzzy to begin with ... if this is wrong or confusing please help clarify it genius's

I would like to be able to verify multiple solutions! I found one way to do it, but would like to try other ways. Because it is already completed it wont reverify!

This was shown in previous lessons. If you read and study the presented material, you will see the pattern.

Once again I am a beginner to this and it has not been taught how to write square. This should be something taught prior to expecting us to do it.

if you read the main instructions for the course/site you will see that some lessons are marked as "future", as this one is. this means that it contains material that has not been shown yet and you will have to figure it out yourself or do a little research to get the answer. they can be skipped and only to serve as a challenge for those who want to push themselves a bit further.

To anybody out there, this advice is in need to be taken wholeheartedly, should you not want to be discouraged or feel any remorse towards codegym.

This was never taught. Isn't this a teaching program? I had no idea what to put in the println as a return value...very confusing. I was initializing a and had no idea what the return did. They explain the easy stuff ad nauseum and when it comes to this they drop the ball. When did we learn about return in a method?

Agree ! Code Gym is pretty cool and they look at all these comments to make it better ! I think they toss things out that are not covered yet as a wake up technique lol This topic will be explained in detail soon. let it ride for now !

This program should be removed or at least talked about at some point.
