Hello folks, I am a newbie to programming. I will be using C++ over the summer for an independent study course in Computational Physics, so I HAVE to get good at this within the next month. I have been practicing a lot, but I still know little about it, only what I have learned from this website and some terrible books I own.

Anyway, just practicing today, I rewrote a program (which I based off of another simpler one I found in a book). Here it is:

The program works just fine if I type in 4 and 6, but here is the problem. I want someone to enter a number that is less than or equal to 10, so if I enter 11, the program returns the message "This number is NOT less than or equal to 10. Please enter a positive whole number that is less than or equal to 10". This works fine, except that if I enter 11 once again, it just goes on to the next question in the program. So it will not accept a number > 10 the first time, but it will if you enter it a second time. This also happens if you enter a negative number after it has already prompted you to enter a positive number. Why is this?!? Thanks a lot for your time!!!Code:#include <iostream> using namespace std; int main() { int num1, num2, total; cout << "Enter a positive whole number that is less than or equal to 10: "; cin >> num1; if ( num1 > 10 ) { cout<<"This number is NOT less than or equal to 10\n"; cout << "Please enter a positive whole number that is less than or equal to 10: "; cin >> num1; } if ( num1 < 0 ) { cout<<"This is NOT a positive number\n"; cout << "Please enter a positive whole number that is less than or equal to 10: "; cin >> num1; } cout << "Now enter another number: "; cin >> num2; cin.get(); total = num1 + num2; cout << "Your numbers total\n" << total << endl; cin.get(); return 0; }
