Hi everyone! I would really appreciate any help that I can get on this problem.
My professor asigned us a project where you create a program that essentially simulates coin flips. The first step in the program is to ask the user how many times they want to flip the coin. Regardless of how many times they choose to flip the coin the program needs to print the result of each flip whether it's heads or tails. I have all of that done i can't figure out how to implement the last step which is to display the maximum consecutive heads and tails that appear in the results from the coin toss'.
Here is the code that I have so far:
'10/11/2006 'Heads or tails program INPUT "How many times do you want to flip the coin?: " ;flipq IF flipq < 1 THEN PRINT "You must flip the coin at least 1 time" END IF DO WHILE count < flipq LET num=INT(RND(0)*2)+1 IF num = 1 THEN PRINT "T" 'LET count = count + 1 'LET tcount = tcount + 1 'LET maxtcount = tcount 'IF maxtcount > tcount THEN 'LET maxtcount = maxtcount 'END IF ELSE PRINT "H" END IF LOOP PRINT tcount; 'PRINT "The maximum number of consecutive heads for " flipq; "coin flips is: " ;hcount 'PRINT "The maximum number of consecutive for " flipq; "coin flips is: " ;tcount
