# Given an int variable n that has been initialized to a positive value and, in addition, int variables k and total that have already been declared, use a while loop to compute the sum of the cubes of the first n whole numbers, and store this value in total. Use no variables other than n, k, and total and do not modify the value of n.

### Challenge:

Given an int variable n that has been initialized to a positive value and, in addition, int variables k and total that have already been declared, use a while loop to compute the sum of the cubes of the first n whole numbers, and store this value in total. Use no variables other than n, k, and total and do not modify the value of n.

Use no variables other than n, k, and total and do not modify the value of n.

### Solution:

```k = 0 ; total = 0;
while (k <= n){
total = total + (k*k*k);
k++;
}
```
