    Post Help for our project

    We are given a project that could GAME OF NIM with this problem
    there only have 3 rows and the first row will have 3 and second will have 5 and third will have 7 and it will be played by two player (HUMAN) and my problem here in our code is it never declared a winner. CAN ANYONE HELP PLEASE.

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
            main()
            {
            int row1[3]={1,1,1};
            int row2[5]={1,1,1,1,1};
            int row3[7]={1,1,1,1,1,1,1};
            int j; int i=1;
            int item; int l;
            int row; int player=1;
            int column; int sum;
    
    
    
            while (i<sum)
            {
            printf("\nPlayer %d's turn! \n\n",player);
            player++;
            if(player == 3)
            player = player - 2;
    
    
            printf("\tRow 1: %d %d %d\n",row1[0],row1[1],row1[2]);
            printf("\tRow 2: %d %d %d %d %d\n", row2[0],row2[1],row2[2],row2[3],row2[4]);
            printf("\tRow 3: %d %d %d %d %d %d %d\n",row3[0],row3[1],row3[2],row3[3],row3[4],row3[5],row3[6]);
    
            printf("\nEnter row number: ");
            scanf("%d", &row);
            if(row > 3 || row < 1)

    It looks like you haven't written that part yet. Perhaps you should have a go at it first?

    Also:
    Code:
    sum= i+i+i+i+i+i+i+i+i+i+i+i+i+i+i;
    is the same as:
    Code:
    sum = i * 15;
    You made me go and count all those i's - grr!

    Here is a formatted version of your code - It should always be indented like this
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    main()
    {
        int row1[3]={1,1,1};
        int row2[5]={1,1,1,1,1};
        int row3[7]={1,1,1,1,1,1,1};
        int j; int i=1;
        int item; int l;
        int row; int player=1;
        int column; int sum;
    
    
    
    
    
    
        while (i<sum)
        {
            printf("\nPlayer %d's turn! \n\n",player);
            player++;
    
    
            if(player == 3)
                player = player - 2;
    
    
    
    
            printf("\tRow 1: %d %d %d\n",row1[0],row1[1],row1[2]);
            printf("\tRow 2: %d %d %d %d %d\n", row2[0],row2[1],row2[2],row2[3],row2[4]);
            printf("\tRow 3: %d %d %d %d %d %d %d\n",row3[0],row3[1],row3[2],row3[3],row3[4],row3[5],row3[6]);

    I'm not too sure what you want the program to do

    Can you please show us what you want the input/output to be?

    i.e.
    Player 1 turn!


    Row 1: 1 1 1
    Row 2: 2 2 2 2 2
    Row 3: 3 3 3 3 3 3 3


    Enter row number: 5
    Error! Enter number from 1-3
    Enter row number: 0
    Enter row number: 2


    ect...

    We'll need to see a full game with how to win or loose

    Enter row number: 2


    ect...

    Ok, The game will do like this..

    ROW1: I I I
    ROW2: I I I I I
    ROW3: I I I I I I I

    player can take any number in each row

    so player 1:

    Enter row number: 1
    Enter how many stick: 3

    ROW1:
    ROW2: I I I I I
    ROW3: I I I I I I I

    so player 2:

    Enter row number: 2
    Enter how many stick to remove: 5

    ROW1:
    ROW2:
    ROW3: I I I I I I I

    player 2

    Enter row number: 3
    How many stick: 6

    ROW1:
    ROW2:
    ROW3: I

    Player 1

    row number: 3
    How many stick: 1

    PLAYER TWO IS THE WINNER!

    INTRUCTION: you can get as many stick you want in a row.
    but the one who get the last stick will be the losser.

    This is my code.. can anyone add so that
    it will declare a winner?..

    That sounds like a fun little homework assignment Note that we can help you with your own code, but not give you any

    OK - The first think that I'd be doing is not working with the board, but just remembering how many sticks are in each row. For displaying the sticks, I would have a separate subroutine called "print_sticks(int r1, int r2, int r3)" which you entered the number of sticks in each row (r1/r2/r3) and the subroutine would loop through printing " I" for each sticks in the row.

    The advantages of doing it this way is that you can check to see if the subtraction is legal or not

    instead of arrays i will use loop for printing this

    ROW1: I I I
    ROW2: I I I I I
    ROW3: I I I I I I I

    is this what you trying to say?..

    Your program does nothing. It asks for some numbers (within a range) but does nothing with them.

    sum = i * 15 ?
    Really?

    Presumably you want sum to be row1[0]+row1[1]+row1[2]+row2[0]+....

    Sort of - I'm suggesting that you have three variables that hold the amount of sticks in each row (int row1, row2, row3) instead of the arrays. To print the ROW1:... use a 'for' loop.

    Do you know how to write a subroutine and a 'for' loop?

    Code:
     
    #include<stdio.h>
    
    int main ()
    {
        int row1, x;
    
        printf("Row1 :");
    
        for(row1 = 2; row1 > 0; --row1)
            {
                for(x = 0; x < row1; ++x)
                printf("\tI");
            }
    
        return 0;
    }
    I got it is this what you trying to say?..
