1) a simple math multiplication program, that will generate two random number and ask the user to input a correct result.
2) current output
1 * 3 = 3(user input)
correct move on
4 * 4 = 16(user input)
correct move on
1 *0 = 0 (user input)
correct
end of program
3) i need the program to continue to prompt the question everytime the input is correct
4) i don't know why it stop after i enter 3 correct answer, i am expecting it run forever

Line 17 should be moved to the first line of main() because srand() should be called only once throughout the lifetime of the program.

lines 17-21: If you want to keep asking the questions then why didn't you use a while loop here ? The if will execute it only once and then stop.

line 19: has no affect because of the semicolon at the end of the line. Your compiler should have warned you about that! DO NOT ignore warnings.

lines 31-39 do not have to be a loop. Just execute lines 34 and 38 directly without those loops and tests.


lines 68 and 69 are unreachable -- meaning that there is no way those lines will ever be executed because of the return on line 67.

Here are some problems you should fix:

How do you want to end the program? You need to know that

After doing a little more testing I see that you have really made mathTest() much more complicated than necessary. You can just flat out delete lines 54-72 because they are redundent and unnecessary. Put a loop in main to call mathTest() as long as it returns true. And mathTest() should only prompt for the answer as it does on lines 42-45 then return either true or false if the user input is correct. You don't have to do any of that other stuff in that function.

1) i change the code with all the suggestion provided.
2) my only concern left for this program is how do i end i want to use E or e.
like this if(input == int(e) does it work?
3) also it seems like i can't get to line 48, my correct number counter wounldn't work?

delete line 22 and replace it with a simple semicolon

while(mathTest())
   ;

>> if(input == int(e) does it work?
No. You can not enter a char instead of a digit because cin will not permit it. But what you can do is input as string and convert to int.

string line;
int input;
cin >> line;
if(line == "E" || line == 'e')
   return false
input = atol(line.c_str());
int main()
{
	srand((unsigned)time(0)); // random number generator 
	
	while(mathTest())
		;

}

bool mathTest() //main function 
{ 
    
    int random_integerA, random_integerB; 
	int input;

	random_integerA = (rand()%10); 
	random_integerB = (rand()%10);

		cout << "Q"<<++qNum<<" ";
		cout << "How Much is ";
        cout << random_integerA ; 
		cout << " times ";
		cout << random_integerB ; 
		cout << " ?: ";
		cin >> input;
			
				if (qNum % 10 == 0)
		{
			cout<<"RN " << rightNum<<endl;
			cout<<"WN " << wrongNum<<endl;
			cout<<"QN " << qNum<<endl;
		}
		if(testAnswer(random_integerA, random_integerB, input))
			{
				correctOutput();
				return true;
				cout << "A "<<endl;
				++rightNum;

			}
		else 
			{
				
				while(testAnswer(random_integerA, random_integerB, input)!= true )
				{   
					incorrectOutput(); 
					cout << "Q"<<qNum<<" ";
					cout << "How Much is ";
					cout << random_integerA ; 
					cout << " times ";
					cout << random_integerB ; 
					cout << " ?: ";
					cin >> input;
					++wrongNum;
					
				}
			
				correctOutput();

1) i think i will not need to end this because i need to display the % right and wrong after every 10 question.
2) why is my 33-39 not working, i try to tested it by placeing a cout<<"A" and it never prints so does my counter for the correct number never add up???

Oh i see i think i need to place the return at the last line of the if ()

if ((qNum % 10) == 0)
		{
				cout<<"RN " << rightNum<<endl;
				cout<<"WN " << wrongNum<<endl;
				cout<<"QN " << qNum<<endl;
}

any good suggestion of where i should place these at??

one more quick help this

while ( input < 0 || !cin.good() ) // validation  
			{
				cout << "Positive Numbers Only.\n";
				cout << "Enter Again: ";
				cin.clear();
				cin >> input;
			}

1) this is my validation for the input
2) i want it to pick up error message when someone entered a character
3) input -1, prompt for reentering a new number
input a, infinite loop error
4) how do i fix that?

1) a simple math power function
2) somehow i wasn't able to figure out how to quit the program
3) i enter q on the first time and it quit the program
but when i enter inputs like this
s- picked square
2- low bound
4- upper bound
it print like
4 9 16
and ask me to reenter the low and upper bound
i enter
0 and 0 which brings me back to the original option s, c, f, .... q
i enter q this time but it didn't stop the program???? why???
4) i am done with this program all i need is to being able to quit

1) line77-92
i want to validate the user input. so i set up a loop that only s,S,c,C.....q,Q can be accepted.
but when i inputs s it is also giving me a wrong option output. which is not suppose to happen.

2) if i take line 77-92 away.
if i enter q the program will end
if i enter s it will prompt me to enter low and upper bound
if i enter s, 1, 2, 0 and 0
it will brings me back to the original prompt i can choose s,c,f....q.
when i enter q or Q. the program did end why is that???

Talk about thread bombing! A full 2/3 of the posts have been made by nicz888, the OP. I for one can't follow the progress here because of multiple posts of 200 line programs. I have no idea what the problem is.

2) if i take line 77-92 away.
if i enter q the program will end
if i enter s it will prompt me to enter low and upper bound
if i enter s, 1, 2, 0 and 0
it will brings me back to the original prompt i can choose s,c,f....q.
when i enter q or Q. the program did end why is that???

Probably because Q or q means quit?

Comments
You have some pretty insane intiution(sp)

yes q means q, but when the prompt is brought up the second time after i enter 0 and 0. when i enter q it doesn't end the program, which is not right.

Output various values as the program runs and see what variables don't contain values you're expecting.

> I have no idea what the problem is.
And I gave up caring about the "me me me" attitude of the OP with the constant bumping, and the not reading the forum rules, or caring enough to format the code.
Too much effort, too little reward.

>>or caring enough to format the code
In defense of the OP his post #16 was posted to correct the code tag mistake he made in the previous post, which I deleted. So he did try to use code tags, but he could have just edited his post that contained the code tag error instead of creating yet another post. I'm not about to criticize someone for making typing mistakes -- God knows I do enough of that myself.
