    Talking yeah alil help for my switch problem

    Yo..I have a problem with my programm. I need a lil assistance…The part that I cant do is the random question part..If I choose five it does not give me the random question ..How would I do that?

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    #include <time.h>
    #include <stdlib.h>
    
    
    int riwo ( int ,int, int, int ); //function prototype .
    void rightwords ( void ); //function for the right words.
    void wrongwords (void ); //function for hte wrong words.
    
    int main()
    {
     int num1, num2, awn,type;
     int diff;
    
    
         srand(time(NULL));
    
         printf ("Enter the level of difficulty.1 for one-digit integers, and 2 for\ntwo-digit integers: ");
         scanf ("%d", &diff );
         if ( diff == 1 ){
         num1 = 1+ rand () % 9;
         num2 = 1+ rand() % 9;  }
         else {
         num1 = 10+rand() %99;
         num2 = 10+rand() %99;}
         printf ("\nEnter the type of arithmetic problem you would like to use: \n"
                 "1)<---Addition\n"
                 "2)<---Subtraction\n"
                 "3)<---Multiplication\n"

                 "5)<---random ( Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division\n"
                 "\nPlease choose from thefollowing: ");

    I suppose you need to start by dynamically building the question text. I'd do this by storing the following in an array like this:
    >char *operators[] = {"plus", "minus", "times", "divided by"};

    Then, when you have chosen your random number (between 0 and 3), use it to index the array and print the message.

    >printf("How much is %d %s %d?", num1, operators[RandomNumber], num2);

    Then, you just ask the user for their input in the normal way.

    Does this help?
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Use functions

    Use seperate functions for the questions.
    use the switch statement to call different functions.
    Think about it, you'll understand.

    You could try this:

    Code:
    int fiveChosen;  /* this would occur higher up, not right above what follows it here */
    
        do
        {
    
            fiveChosen = 0;
    
            switch (type)
            {
    
              case 1:
                printf ("How much is %d plus %d?", num1, num2 );
                scanf ("%d", &awn );
                break;
    
              case 2:
                printf ("How much is %d minus %d?", num1, num2 );
                scanf ("%d",&awn );
                break;
    
              case 3:
                printf ("How much is %d times %d?", num1, num2 );
                scanf ("%d", &awn );
                break;
    
              case 4:
                printf ("How much is %d divided by %d?", num1, num2 );
                scanf ("%d", &awn );
                break;
    
              case 5:
                fiveChosen = 1;
                type = 1 + rand() % 4;
    
            }
    
        } while (fiveChosen);
    What happens there is that the switch is in a do...while loop that repeats as long as "fiveChosen" is not 0. If the number 5 is chosen, then "fiveChosen" gets set to 1, which makes the condition true, which will then bring the randomized value for "type" back into the switch statement. The program will then continue normally as if the randomized value was what was inputted.
