You may find the page on accumulating variables useful:

How many countries in Asia?

In this example we use an accumulator to count the countries in Africa.

Notice that acc shows up three times:

  • The accumulator acc is set to zero at the start.
  • Every time we encounter Africa we increment acc.
  • After the loop has completed acc contains the value we want - so we print it.

Change the program so that it counts the countries of Asia.

Total area

Calculate the total area of the world.

This time we add to the accumulator each time. We can use either of the statements below:

acc = acc + area;
acc += area;

Total population

Calculate the total population of the world.

The answer - at a little over 6 billion will be too large for an int. Use a long instead.
