start firstNum = 10 secondNum = 5 thirdNum = 1 theAns = 0 do while thirdNum < 10 if firstNum > 10 firstNum = firstNum + 5 secondNum = secondNum + 5 thirdNum = thirdNum + 5 else if secondNum > 10 firstNum = firstNum + 3 secondNum = secondNum + 3 thirdNum = thirdNum + 3 else secondNum = secondNum + 4 end if end while loop theAns = firstNum +secondNum + thirdNum display theAns end To start the program: firstNum secondNum thirdNum theAns thirdNum = 1 so thirdNum is less then 10 so I move on to the first if statement firstNum = 10 so firstNum is NOT greater than 10 so I go to the else. secondNum = 5 so secondNum is NOT greater than 10 so I go to the else I add 4 to secondNum. Since secondNum started at 5, it is now =9 NOW: firstNum secondNum thirdNum theAns Now I drop through the end if, end if and end while loop and return to the do while statement to check and see if the loop should be done again.

start firstNum = 10 secondNum = 5 thirdNum = 1 theAns = 0 do while thirdNum < 10 if firstNum > 10 firstNum = firstNum + 5 secondNum = secondNum + 5 thirdNum = thirdNum + 5 else if secondNum > 10 firstNum = firstNum + 3 secondNum = secondNum + 3 thirdNum = thirdNum + 3 else secondNum = secondNum + 4 end if end while loop theAns = firstNum +secondNum + thirdNum display theAns end NOW: firstNum secondNum thirdNum theAns thirdNumis 1 so it is still < 10 so I enter the loop firstNum is 10 so is NOT greater than 10 so I go to the else secondNum is 9 so is NOT greater than 10 so I go to the else I add 4 to second number which is currently equals 13 NOW: firstNum secondNum thirdNum theAns Now I drop through the end if, end if and end while loop and return to the do while statement to check and see if the loop should be done again.

start firstNum = 10 secondNum = 5 thirdNum = 1 theAns = 0 do while thirdNum < 10 if firstNum > 10 firstNum = firstNum + 5 secondNum = secondNum + 5 thirdNum = thirdNum + 5 else if secondNum > 10 firstNum = firstNum secondNum = secondNum + 3 thirdNum = thirdNum + 3 else secondNum = secondNum + 4 end if end while loop theAns = firstNum +secondNum + thirdNum display theAns end NOW: firstNum secondNum thirdNum theAns thirdNum is still 1 and that means it is less than 10, so I enter the loop. firstNum is 10 so it is still not greater than 10 so I go to the else. secondNum is 13 so secondNum is greater than 10 so I execute the three statements under that it. NOW: firstNum secondNum thirdNum theAns Now I drop through the end if, end if and end while loop and return to the do while statement to check and see if the loop should be done again.

start firstNum = 10 secondNum = 5 thirdNum = 1 theAns = 0 do while thirdNum < 10 if firstNum > 10 firstNum = firstNum + 5 secondNum = secondNum + 5 thirdNum = thirdNum + 5 else if secondNum > 10 firstNum = firstNum secondNum = secondNum + 3 thirdNum = thirdNum + 3 else secondNum = secondNum + 4 end if end while loop theAns = firstNum +secondNum + thirdNum display theAns NOW: firstNum secondNum thirdNum theAns thirdNum is 4 and that means it is still less than 10, so I enter the loop. firstNum is 13 so it is greater than 10 so I execute the statements in the if by adding 5 to the numbers NOW: firstNum secondNum thirdNum theAns Now I drop through the end if and end while loop and return to the do while statement to check and see if the loop should be done again. Note that I do not enter the else on the first if so I do not ask the second question.

start firstNum = 10 secondNum = 5 thirdNum = 1 theAns = 0 do while thirdNum < 10 if firstNum > 10 firstNum = firstNum + 5 secondNum = secondNum + 5 thirdNum = thirdNum + 5 else if secondNum > 10 firstNum = firstNum secondNum = secondNum + 3 thirdNum = thirdNum + 3 else secondNum = secondNum + 4 end if end while loop theAns = firstNum +secondNum + thirdNum display theAns NOW: firstNum secondNum thirdNum theAns thirdNum is 9. The do while says to enter the loop if thirdNum is less then 10, so I enter the loop. firstNum is 18 so the answer to the firstNum > 10 question is yes and I execute the three commands. NOW: firstNum secondNum thirdNum theAns Now I drop through the end if and end while loop and return to the do while statement to check and see if the loop should be done again. Note that I do not enter the else on the first if so I do not ask the second question.

start firstNum = 10 secondNum = 5 thirdNum = 1 theAns = 0 do while thirdNum < 10 if firstNum > 10 firstNum = firstNum + 5 secondNum = secondNum + 5 thirdNum = thirdNum + 5 else if secondNum > 10 firstNum = firstNum secondNum = secondNum + 3 thirdNum = thirdNum + 3 else secondNum = secondNum + 4 end if end while loop theAns = firstNum +secondNum + thirdNum display theAns NOW: firstNum secondNum thirdNum theAns thirdNum is 14 so it is no longer less than 10. This means that I do not enter the loop. When I drop out of the loop, I execute the sentence immediately after the end while loop. theAns = theAns = will be displayed on the screen
