Now, here is what i have so far: var number, guess : int var number_of_guess : int :=1 colour(9) randomize randint (number, 1, 100) loop put "Enter a guess between 1 and 100: " .. get guess if guess = number then colour(6) put "WOW! You're right! good job" if number_of_guess = 1 then colour(4) put "YAAAAA!!!!!!!! You got it in ", number_of_guess, " try!!" elsif number_of_guess > 1 then colour(17) put "It took you ", number_of_guess, " tries to get this. Do better next time!" end if put "The number was ", number end if if guess > number then colour(11) put "Sorry! You're guess is too HIGH!!" sound(100,100) elsif guess < number then colour(12) put "Sorry! You're guess is too LOW!" sound(1000,100) end if number_of_guess := number_of_guess + 1 exit when guess = number end loop ok, so now i have to modify the program so that the number of guesses taken so far is displayed on the screen. Then i need to modify the program furthur by allowing the user to give up by entering a guess of -1. If the user gives up, then the number of guesses taken so far along with teh "hidden" number are to be displayed on the screen. Now, i dont understand a word of this... so if anyone could help me with the codes, it would be greatly appriciated! Thanx SO MUCH!

Now, to count guesses, you just declear an int variable and initialize it to 0. Each time user takes a guess, you add +1 to it, so at the end you can just use "put counter" and it will tell you how many times you guessed. (looking at your code I think you already have it done) You know how you use a loop to keep on taking guesses? And "exit when" to exit when the guess is right? Just add another exit when guess = -1.

But, with the program, i only have it so far as to tell the number of guesses that you have taken altogether. I still dont know how to make it so that when they guess a number, it tells them, "you have guessed one". Please help!
