So I need to write a program where the user tries to guess a magic number. The only thing that I do not know how to do is set the max. amount of guesses to 5. This is what I have so far. Can someone please show me how to limit the user to 5 guesses? Thanks so much!

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
    int magic=6, guess;

    do
    {
        cout <<"Guess the magic number. The number is anywhere between 0 and 9: \n";
        cin >>guess;
        if (magic == guess)
        {
            cout <<"You guessed right. \n";
        }
        else if (magic<guess)
        {
            cout << "You guessed too high.\n";
        }
        else
        {
            cout << "You guessed too low.\n";
        }
    }while (magic!= guess);
        return 0;
    }

#include <iostream>

using namespace std;
int magic = 7;
int guess;
int trys =0;
int main(){
    do{
        cin>>guess;

        if(guess!=magic){
        ++trys;
        }

        if(guess<magic){
        cout<<"TOO low!"<<endl;
        }

        if(guess>magic){
        cout<<"Too high!"<<endl;
        }

        if(guess==magic){
        cout<<"Woohoo"<<endl;
        break;
        }

    }while(trys!=5);
    if(trys==5){
    cout<<"Boo! you lost!"<<endl;
    }
}

This is the code.

We are not a homework service. Do NOT write the code for people. HELP them write their own code.

Perhaps, to make your code more efficient, you might use srand() so that, you will get random magic numbers.
