# I am stuck at this question, please could you assist me with the answer

Please could you let me know what the answer is to this question as I cannot figure it out thank you

variable_assignment.mm
```int mathTotal;
bool isComplete;
for (int = 5; i=25; i++) {
if(isComplete=25){
break;
isComplete=TRUE;
}
}
```

Hi Kathleen,

You forgot to add the incrementing value to mathTotal. Also in the for loop, make sure to declare i (int i = 5), and remember the difference between "=" (assign a value) and "== or <=" (compare values). You don't need to break if your loop declaration is correct.

(and for this line:

```if(isComplete=25)
```

I am not sure what you try to achieve but you can't assign an int value to a bool and if you want to compare, it's better to compare like this

```if (isComplete == true)
```

than using an int as Xcode suggest

"Comparison of constant 25 with expression of type 'bool' is always false")

Hope I clearly explained. Let me know if you need further help. :)

I think I sort of understand what you mean, but still can't seem to get the correct answer for the question: Create a for loop that will begin with a value of 5 and end with a value of 25. In each iteration, add the incrementing value to mathTotal. When the loop has finished running, set 'isComplete' to true. (HINT: the last value used INSIDE the loop should be 25)

The first question asked me to create int mathTotal; bool isComplete;

You declare a for loop like this:

```        for (int i = 5; i <= 25; i++) {
}
```

You increment the value with this operation:

```            mathTotal += i;
```

And you set 'isComplete? to true like this:

```        isComplete = true;
```

Of course, you add the incrementing value to mathTotal inside the loop.

Hope it helps :)
