guys! can you please help on what do i have to do to end my program?
after the player wins it still continues to play the game..
i know its in the do-while.. but i'm confused on what to do.
but please can someone modify it?
thanks!

if(a[0] == goalTotal) cout << "\nPlayer Wins\n";
if(a[1] == goalTotal) cout << "\nPlayer Wins\n";
if(a[2] == goalTotal) cout << "\nPlayer Wins\n";
if(a[3] == goalTotal) cout << "\nPlayer Wins\n";
if(a[4] == goalTotal) cout << "\nPlayer Wins\n";
if(a[5] == goalTotal) cout << "\nPlayer Wins\n";
if(a[6] == goalTotal) cout << "\nPlayer Wins\n";
if(a[7] == goalTotal) cout << "\nPlayer Wins\n";

This can be like that to exit from while loop.

for(i = 0; i < 8; i++){cout << "\nPlayer Wins\n"; break;}

Sorry there is a mistake, it must be like this:

for(i = 0; i < 8; i++)
{if(a[i] == goalTotal) cout << "\nPlayer Wins\n"; break;}

Actually, you must use break only to quit!
