I am trying to get my homework assignment to work for class, but I cant seem to get it. Heres the assignment.

Write a program that asks the user to guess the next roll of a six sided die. Each guess costs $ 1. If they guess correctly, they get $ 100.00. The player will start out with a $10.00 bank. Each time he (or she) guesses incorrectly you will subtract $1.00 from their bank. Each time they guess correct, you add $100.00 to their bank. Print the total winnings or loss at the end of the game. [Each die toss is simulated using die = (int)(rand() % 6) + 1;]

Your program should look something like this:

Your bank is $10.00
Please enter your guess for the next roll. It only costs $1.00 to play, If you are correct I will pay you $100.00:

6
Sorry, the dice rolled a 5.
continue?

y

Your bank is $9.00
Please enter your guess for the next roll. It only costs $1.00 to play, If you are correct I will pay you $100.00:

4
Winner! the dice rolled a 4.
continue?
n
Thanks for playing your bank is $109.00. Come back real soon

Seems not to bad doesnt it? Well I have been working for a while and it still isnt working for me. I enter lets say a 4 it will tell me Sorry, the dice rolled a 5. I need a little help if anyone can please. I am not looking for you to complete my assignment, but take a look and give some advice for a beginner.

Thanks :)

cin>>num;
cin.get(roll);
die=(int)(rand()%6)+1;
if (num==die)
{
cout<<"Winner! The dice rolled a" <<num<<endl;
money += 100;
}
else if (num < die)
{
cout<<"Sorry the dice rolled a "<<num<<endl;

What is the purpose of roll ? Look carefully at these lines and make sure they are what you want. See red highlight.

die=(int)(rand()%6)+1;
if (num==die)
{
cout<<"Winner! The dice rolled a" <<num<<endl;
money += 100;

else if (num < die)

  int die;

  int money=10;

  do{

  cout<<"Your bank is $" <<money<<endl;

  cout<<"Please enter your guess for the next roll. It only costs $1.00 to play, If you are correct I will pay you $100.00:" <<endl;

  cin>>num;

  cin.get(roll);

  die=(int)(rand()%6)+1;

  if (num==die)

  {

  cout<<"Winner! The dice rolled a " << die << " You win $100 :)" <<endl;

  money += 100;

  }

  else if (num < die)

  {

  cout<<"Sorry the dice rolled a   " <<die <<endl;

  money -= 1;

  }


  cout<< "Would you like to try another one? y/n?" << endl;
  cin>> ans;
  }while (ans== 'y');



    }

In your second if statement you are saying if (num < die) . what would happen if I guessed 5 and the die was 2? A better way would be to do if (num != die) .
