    Text Being Written Over The Top Of Each Other

    Hi everyone,

    I have a simple applet to display the perfect numbers from 1-500...but when the numbers that are considered to be perfect are displayed, they are written over the top of each other...

    Ive used a simple for loop, but it doesnt seem to help...does anyone have any ideas as to what is going on?

    Thanks very much!

    import java.applet.*;
    import java.awt.*;
    public class PerfectNumbers extends Applet {
        int maxNum=500;
        int perfectCount=0;
        public void paint (Graphics g){
            for(int ctr=maxNum;ctr>=2;ctr--)
                int sum = 0;
                int sum2 = 0;
                for(int ctr2 = ctr; ctr2>=2; ctr2--)
                        sum = sum+(ctr/ctr2);
                        sum2 = ctr/ctr2;
                for (int i = 1; i<=4; i++)
        g.drawString("There are "+perfectCount+" Perfect numbers from 1-" +maxNum,20,60);

    it's because you have two for loops.
    the inner loop for (int i = 1; i<=4; i++) which does the drawing is
    initialized allways equal when the outer loop iterates.
    try to draw the strings dependent on the variable of the outer loop,
    eg g.drawString(""+ctr,20,120+ctr*20); or sth like that.
