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 for 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.

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 for 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.

SOLUTION:

total = 0;
for (k = n; k >= 0; k--)
total = total + (k*k*k);
