 P: 10 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Write a program in Fortran 90 (not fortran 77) that reads from the user 4 integers a, b, c, d. The program should first check if applicable inequality a ≤ b, c ≤ d. If not then it should asking again numbers from the user until they have given numbers satisfying these inequalities. Once your program reads these numbers should 1. to print the squares of integers k such that is a ≤ k ≤ b. 2. To print the product of all integers r is such that c ≤ r ≤ d. 2. Relevant equations its says that the program should asking the user to give numbers until satisfying a<=b and c<=d. This will be done with loop?( i dont know how to do this and i stucked).Still how i can find the squares of integers k and the product of all integers r?( i want only an description of how to do it to finish the program) 3. The attempt at a solution program sub implicit none integers :: a, b, c, d print *, "Give me an integer a:" read *, a print *, "Give me an integer b:" read *, b print *, "Give me an integer c:" read *, c print *, "Give me an integer d:" read *, d if(a .ge. b) then print *, "Invalid." stop endif if(c .ge. d) then print *, "Invalid." stop endif
 P: 3,098 Here's a simple structure in pseudo code: notOK=0 while(notOK<1) { read a,b,c,d if((a>b) or (c>d)) print "ERROR: either a>=b or c>=d: Please re-enter your four numbers" else notOK=1 } // step 2 for(k=a; k<=b; k++) { print "k:"+k+" and k^2: " +(k*k) } // set 3 use a loop like the one above within another loop like the one above
 P: 10 program Arithmetical implicit none integers :: a, b, c, d PRINT *, "Give me an integer a:" READ *, a PRINT *, "Give me an integer b:" READ *, b PRINT *, "Give me an integer c:" READ *, c PRINT *, "Give me an integer d:" READ *, d IF(a .ge. b) THEN PRINT *, "Invalid." STOP ENDIF IF(c .ge. d) then PRINT *, "Invalid." STOP ENDIF notOK = 0 DO notOK = notOK + 1 IF( (a>b) or (c>d) ) EXIT PRINT *, "ERROR: either a>=b or c>=d: Please re-enter your four numbers" ELSE notOK = 1 ENDIF END DO FOR(k=a, k<=b, k++) PRINT "k:"+k+" and k^2: " +(k*k) END PROGRAM I used this in silverfrost but cant run it. I belive that i have something wrong .Can anyone correct me wrongs?
 P: 3,098 for the squaring loop use: DO 10 K=A,B,1 print K*K 10 CONTINUE

 Quote by jedishrfu for the squaring loop use: DO 10 K=A,B,1 print K*K 10 CONTINUE
For fortran 90, you'd want to dispense with the line numbers and CONTINUE, and do something like this:
DO K = A, B
PRINT K * K
END DO

Thanks for the correction, I work mostly in java and haven't done fortran in roughly 40 years or so but I think F90 still accepts the old style otherwise they'd break a lot of programs.

Check your variable declarations, and significant parts of this are not in Fortran. Also, you really need to review how to form loops; googling "fortran 90 loops" will take you to informative material, including Wikibooks

As a code snip, you might use:

do
print *, "Give me an integer a:"
print *, "Give me an integer b, not less than a:"   ! try to AVOID mistakes
if (b >= a) exit          ! ===> input OK
print *, "Found b less than a, please re-enter your numbers a & b"
end do
I suggest you just get this working for the inputs before you try the calculations. Then read up on iterated loops as per Mark44's post.
 P: 10 1. to print the squares of integers k such that is a ≤ k ≤ b. 2. To print the product of all integers r is such that c ≤ r ≤ d. How i can to do the above 2 parts i stucked here.
 P: 361 1. Read Mark44 above 2. Initialize the product calculation p at 1, then make a loop starting at c, ending at d, and multiply the loop counter into p each time.

 Quote by DoremiCSD 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Write a program in fortran 90 which reads from the user 4 integers a,b,c and d. The program first needs to make sure that the following inequalities hold : a <=b <=c <=d. If not,the program needs to ask again those numbers from the user until the user finally gives numbers that satisfy the above inequalities. Once your program reads these numbers , then it will have to : 1) type the squares of the integers k , such as a< = k <= b , and 2)type the product of all the integers r, such as c<= r <= d.
In 1 and 2 above, "such as" is incorrect, as it suggests an example. The problem statement undoubtedly means "such that."
Do you understand what parts 1 and 2 are asking you to do? If not, you will never be able to write the code to implement these parts.

To assess your understanding, if a = 5 and b = 15, what output would you expect from part 1.

Similarly, if c = 3 and d = 12, what output would you expect from part 2?
 Quote by DoremiCSD 2. Relevant equations Guys i am the guy with the fortran problem and my program doesnt run i dont know why.
Be more specific. When you say it doesn't run, we have no idea what that means. Does your code fail to compile? If so, you need to fix the syntax errors. One that I see is '^' used for raising a number to a power. The operator in Fortran is **, not ^.

Does your code compile but not run? If so, there are errors in your logic, so that the program halts before doing anything useful. In your input section, if the user enters invalid values, the program STOPs. It should not be doing that. Your whole input section needs to be in a DO loop of some kind, where the loop keeps running until all of the input values are in the right order.
 Quote by DoremiCSD Maybe its wrong written because i am new in programming.Plz if anyone cangive me the right code.
We DO NOT do your work for you. We'll help, but we aren't going to just give you the code.
 Quote by DoremiCSD Down is my try for the program..... 3. The attempt at a solution
Use a [code] tag just above your code, and a [/code] tag after the end of your code . This makes your code easier for us to read, by preserving your indentation. Please make an effort to do that on code that you show.

 P: 361 It looks like you don't appreciate the difference between an inline if and a block if statement: Inline ("logical") if: if ()  (note, there is no end if for an inline if) Block if: if () then end if (note that there are further options in a block if using else and else if) Selective execution Also you won't really get closer to a solution by just piling every suggested piece of code - with unnecessary additions - into your program. You really have to understand what the code is doing. And you'd do well to annotate your code with some comments, too.
