# How do i solve Challenge Task 1 of 1 for the Pagination Course?

Pleas help!!

controller.php
```<?php

require_once('model.php');
\$numbers = get_numbers();

\$count_less_than_one           = 0;
\$count_between_one_and_thousand = 0;
\$count_greater_than_thousand    = 0;

foreach (\$numbers as \$number) {

if (\$count_less_than_one > \$number) {
count(\$numbers);
}

if (\$count_between_one_and_thousand > 0 AND \$count_between_one_and_thousand < 1001) {
count(\$number);
}

\$count_greater_than_thousand += 1;

}

include('view.php');

?>
```

Something more along these lines:

```    foreach (\$numbers as \$number) {

if (\$number < 1) {
\$count_less_than_one += 1;

} else if (\$number <= 1000) {
\$count_between_one_and_thousand += 1;

} else {
\$count_greater_than_thousand += 1;
}

}
```

\$count_less_than_one, \$count_between_one_and_thousand, and \$count_greater_than_thousand are accumulators, and shouldn't be in the condition of if(), else if() or else().

Not quite.

sum++ is short for sum = sum + 1

sum += n is short for sum = sum + n

So sum = sum + 1 can be shortened to either sum++ or sum += 1, but sum = sum + 2 can only be shortened to sum += 2

Oh... I got you. Was looking it up and couldn't find what it stood for. Thanks.

You are welcome.
