    Need help fast with counting consecutive occurances

    Hi, I am new to prgramming and am having a little trouble. I need help with I am working on this program...a user inputs an integer between 1 and 100 (for example, 50). I have a for loop that generates random numbers between 1 and 100 and iterates according to another user input. Now i need to figure out the number of consecutive times that a random numbers occurs below or above the user input.
    For example...
    cout<<"What's your number?";
    cin>>50
    cout<<"How many random numbers would you like?";
    cin>>10

    Output: 24 34 54 67 98 12 34 44 99 10 (random numbers)

    This is what I need to figure out...how many times the random numbers occurs consecutively...
    24 and 34 are 2 consecutives below 50
    54, 67, and 98 a 3 consecutives above 50
    12, 34, 44 are 3 consecutives below 50

    Thank you!

    Well you pretty much wrote the logic of what you want to achieve.

    if this > previous && this <= 50 then increment count, else reset count
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
