Can anyone help me out by explaining how to incorporate a chance of stopping a count loop. For exanple how to get a counted loop to have a 50% of stopping before it reaches 10.

well all you really have to do is make an exit when statement with a randint

code:


for i: 1..10
var num : int
randint (num,1,2)
exit when num = 2
count := count+1
if count = 10
then put "Hurray, you hit 10"
end if
end for
if num = 2
then put "Aw shucks, you beat me to the punch. ;_;"
end if


Well that's basically the code you need, but why would you WANT to stop your forloop before it hits 10?

hehe dave got it before u lol Laughing


code:
var num : real
randomize
for count : 1 .. 10
    rand (num)
    exit when num <= .50
    put count
end for

That is not a 50% chance of exiting before hitting 10

Your code has a 50% chance everytime you go through the loop

I am not sure exactly what the numbers are but i think if you're going through the loop 10 times then the code should be:
code:

var num : real
var count : int := 0
randomize
loop
    count += 1
    rand (num)
    exit when num <= .05 or count = 10
end loop
if count = 10 then
    put "You got to 10"
else
    put "You only got to ", count
end if

ummm
code:

for i: 1..10
exit when Rand.Int(0,1)
end for

dodge, dodge, dodge... this isn't c++

code:

for i : 1 .. 10
    exit when Rand.Int (0, 1) = 1
end for


although i'm still not sure that would be correct for having a 50% chance of exiting before reaching ten. with that code there's a 50% chance of exiting at every repetition. so... yeah...

oh. well, i'm sure he can change it. i sure hope they update the "Teams Registered" site soon, i hear there's gonna be a team from I.H. Ateturing Secondary School participating in the contest and that one of the guys in particular on that team is really good.

P.S. EM = Evasive Maneuvers. honestly, what else am i gonna be doing during the DWITE contest?
