Loop function question

Posted 11 years ago
Hi All,

I'm new to Mathematica. Below is the code I have trouble with.
Do[Print[Subscript[C, k][x_, y_] =
   Subscript[q, 2 k - 1] +
    x*Subscript[q,
     2 k] - (Subscript[q, l] + y*Subscript[q, l + 1])], {k, 3, 5,
  1}, {l, 3}]

In this loop, I want k=3 map to l=1, k=4 map to l=2, and k=5 map to l=3. However in this loop function, it loops through l=1,2,3 when k=3 and so on. So is there an automatic way or code to stop the certain looping?

Thanks in advance and sorry for my English.

First run Quit to make sure that the Kernel is fresh and then run the following:
Do[
   With[{l = k - 2},
    Print[Subscript[C, k][x_, y_] == Subscript[q, 2 k - 1] +  x*Subscript[q, 2 k] - (Subscript[q, l] + y*Subscript[q, l + 1])]
   ],
{k, 3, 5, 1}]

First, I've used == instead of = in the code above. I'm not sure if you really wanted to use "=" or "==" in your code.

Secondly, I've used With to say that l should be 2 less than k in the formula. Is this what you meant?

Thank you Sean. That was a typo. It should be := instead of ==.

I will have a try "With" now. 

Thanks again for your help.
