I have this problem which says, "A programmer can use the random feature to emulate the flipping of a coin. For example, if the generator produces a number 0 or 1, the value 0 can be assigned heads and the value 1 can be assigned tails.
Write a program that "flips" a coin 50 times. Count the number of times the result is heads. Count the number of times the result is tails."
I am using Flowgorithim (a flowchart and algorithim combo) and so far I have:
Declare Integer heads
Declare Integer tails
Declare Integer flipCoin
Declare Integer count
Display "This program emulates 50 coin tosses of heads (0) or tails (1): "
For count 1 = 1 to 50
Set heads = 0
Set tails = 1
Set flipCoin = random(2)
If flipCoin == tails Then
Set flipCoin = tails
Set flipCoin = heads
Display "Total number of heads: ", heads
Display "Total number of tails: ", tails
Simply, I am confused on how to total up the heads and tails and then display them. Could someone help?
