I'm getting this error: term does not evaluate to a function taking 1 arguments on the bolded and underlined parts of this code. I know this code isnt that great...has some extra stuff it doesnt need, but I'm working on that. This is pretty much the first program I've made in C++, other then one or two small ones for assignments.

Line 85 and others. You defined random as an integer in line 9. I'm not sure what you are trying to do. An integer is not a function so if you are tying to call a function, you can't do it that way. Are you trying to call the rand () function to create some random integer? If so, what range are you trying to achieve?

ya, I'm trying to all the rand() function to create some random integer, between 1 and 10.

O.K. Change line 85 to something like this:

Hcard[i] = 1 + rand () % 10;

rand () is the random number function. It returns an integer from 0 to some big number called RAND_MAX, which is 32,000 or something; depends on the compiler, I think. Anyway, too big of a range for you here. % is the mod operator. It takes the remainder after dividing by 10. The result is a number from 0 to 9, inclusive. Adding 1 to it makes it a number from 1 to 10.

thanks! that worked. Now I have one more error, it says that i is an undeclared identifier in 11 places that i is used.
