I have an assignment to create a card game that compares to dealt cards between players to see who has the highest valued card. It must first be determined by the cards value, then only if it is tied, the suits value. The code below is what I have so far. It is working, but it isnt how I need to compare the two cards together.

``````string card(unsigned int card) //Assigns suits to values
{
if (card >= 52)
{
return "Invalid";
}
return  values[card % 13] + " of " + suits[card / 13]; // where card ranges from 0 to 51.``````

This is the sections that seems to be the issue. Instead of both the value and the suit added together, I need just the value done, then only if it ties, to compare the higher suit to see who wins. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
