# **What is the usage of "Break" statement here and how 6 came on the output? **

#include <stdio.h> main() { int i, j, x = 0; for (i = 0; i < 5; ++i) for (j = 0; j < i; ++j) { x += (i + j - 1); printf("%d\n", x); break; } printf("\nx = %d\n", x); } Output on compiler: 0 1 3 6 x = 6 Press any key to continue . . .
