Help Me Please!!!
here is my code for program where i have to roll a pair of dice 36000 times randomly here is the code and when i compile it it will give me random rolls for even faces of the dice only please tell me what is wrong.
include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <time.h>
int frequency[13];
int main()
{
int x,sum,dice_array[1,36000],count_array[13];
srand(time(NULL));
sum=0;
for (x=2; x<=13; x++)
{
count_array[x]=0;
}
for (x=0; x<=36000; x++)
{
dice_array[0,x] = 1 + rand() % 6;
dice_array[1,x] = 1 + rand() % 6;
}
for (x=0; x<=36000; x++)
{
sum=(dice_array[0,x]+dice_array[1,x]);
count_array[sum]++;
sum=0;
}
printf("\n Number Frequency\n");
for (x=2; x<=12; x++)
{
printf("%d%10d\n",x,count_array[sum]);
}
return 0;
}

I'd be interested in seeing a "sizeof(dice_array)" here. I doubt it is what you expect. In any case, why do you have it this way?
Quzah.

Im trying to figure out why when i run my program its giving me values only on even numbers. Its giving me the right about of rolls.
here is the assignment im working on www.cs.ucf.edu/~riqbal/assign4.html

ATH0
int x, array[DSIZE];
srand(time(0));
for( x=0; x < DSIZE; x++ ) array[x] = rand()%6;
Where's the problem?

i cant find the problem either but just run the code and look at the output, it will only give values on even numbered dice faces i am totally confused. here is the output:
Number Frequency
2 6037
3 0
4 5979
5 0
6 6038
7 0
8 6029
9 0
10 5994
11 0
12 5923

umm, you DO know your array is one dimensional, not 2? You declare an array of only one dimension. And the reason you get only even output is because you add the number to itself:
array[0,x] is the same as array[x];
array[1000,x] is the same as array[x];
The comma operator returns the value of the rightmost operand (the comma operator is really only used in the case of a for statement, BTW).
You also violate your array boundaries  array[1,36000] really means array[36000] which means the indices go from 0 to 35999.
You probably want to declare the array like THIS:
dice_array[2][36001].
Also, you need to init your count array with x < 13, not x <= 13 because the indices go from 0 to 12  count_array[13] is reading beyond your array.

You dont need the limits to be in an array. ie. a[36000]. Just use a for loop, (x=2; x <=36000; x++) to increment up to 36000. Define SIZE 13 in preprocessor assignment.
# include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <time.h>
#define SIZE 13
int main()
{
int sum,diceone,dicetwo,count_array[];
srand(time(NULL));
sum=0;
for (x=2; x<=13; x++)
{
diceone = rand() % 6;
dicetwo= rand () %6;
sum = diceone + dicetwo;
}
