    Use sprintf.

    Code:
    int num = 5;
    TCHAR *string;
    sprintf(string, TEXT("The int is %d"), num);
    MessageBox(NULL, string, TEXT("INTEGER"), MB_OK);
    Does this help?

    CORRECTION:

    I think you'll have to use wsprintf due to the fact that TCHAR *string could be a pointer to wide characters.

    int word_count; // you fill in

    char output[100];

    sprintf( output, "The Word Count Is %i !", word_count);

    MessageBox(hwnd, output, TEXT("Official Word Count"), MB_OK);
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool flip(bool value)
    {
           return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)*(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }
