# 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 do…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.

### 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 do…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.

### Solution:

k = 0 ;
total = 0 ;
while ( k <= n ){ total = total + ( k * k * k) ; k++ ; } [/sourcecode]
