C++/For Loop


Using C, I was asked to use For Loop to calculate the answer for the sum of 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10.  Although I know how to display these numbers in sequence using a For Loop, but I could not use For Loop to calculate the sum of these numbers.  Any suggestions?  


The following code snippet should help you out and get you pointing in the right direction:

// in main
int main()
int iSum = 0, i;

for(i = 0; i <= 10; i++)
iSum += i;

return 0;

It sums up all the numbers from 1 to 10 in the for loop.

I hope this information was helpful.
