# why it doesnt work?

## why it doesnt work?

(OP)
why this code doesnt work?? if i put k += 1 it gives the correct anwear k = 6
*Whats going on?

Sub Main()

Dim m As Double(,) = {{6, 2, 6}, {1, 3, 7}}
Dim k As Double
Dim  A0 As Double
Do Until A0 = 1.0
k += 0.1
A0 = m(0, 0) / k
Loop
Console.WriteLine("k is " & k)

### RE: why it doesnt work?

Are you sure that this is Visual Basic? If so, which version?

Good Luck

yes is visual basic.net

### RE: why it doesnt work?

I would avoid using the '=' operator to compare values that are not integers (your variables are doubles). Due to how the computer stores numbers and rounding errors you may never end up with 'A0=1.0'. You may get 0.999999999... or 1.000000000003 which would then put you in an infinite loop situation.

Now if you explain more of what you are trying to do we can help you. My best guess is that you are trying to normalize an array. If that is the case why not just take m(0,0) and that is what you need to divide by to get A0=1.0 (ie k=m(0,0)).
