Help resolve HW 5 Problem 5 ambiguity?

Does the initial value (u,v) = (1,1) count as iteration number 1, or as iteration number 0?

Thanks!

Normally the starting value does not count as an iteration. So I'd say zero.

I agree, it should be zero.

I almost got this wrong, though. I was printing out the values
before updating u and v, but the loop started at 1.
