Suppose you want to print out numbers in brackets, formatted as follows: [1] [2] [3] and so on. Write a method that takes two parameters: howMany and lineLength. The method should printout line numbers from 1 to howMany in the previous format, but it should not output more than lineLength characters on any one line.

Hi Friend,

Try this:

import java.util.*;
class NumberExample1
    public static void main(String[] args) 
        int count=0;
        Scanner input=new Scanner(;
        System.out.print("How many numbers do you want to enter: ");
        int nums=input.nextInt();
        System.out.print("Length of Line: ");
        int len=input.nextInt();
        for(int i=1;i<=nums;i++){
            System.out.print("["+i+"]"+" ");

Thanks so much! I have 1 doubt, the question says it should not output more than lineLength "CHARACTERS" on any one line. That means it counts the entire [1] [2] [3] as a character. Any help with this?
