3 dice rolling program

1 New Member
Anybody know how to write a 3 dice rolling program like this


Sample output

Welcome to the dice roller!

First of all, please enter a seed for the random number generator. This should be a positive integer: 3

How many times would you like me to roll the 3 dice?
Enter your choice here: -9
Sorry, please enter a positive number: 100

Okay, I’ll roll the dice 100 times and find the sum each time.

Here are the results:

Sum Frequency
3 0
4 1
5 3
6 3
7 6
8 15
9 12
10 18
11 13
12 13
13 3
14 6
15 4
16 3
17 0
18 0
....

Please help!

As the question say you should use the seed function and call the rand function to get the number.
In a single dice maximum number is 6 and so whatever number you get mod it(%) by 6 to get a single dice value and same process for other piece.
Now you have value for one dice.
Youe should be using same logic for 3 pair of dice.
Hope you are understanding this

Thanks

With that having been said, PhpMyChat seems to offer a lot of what I am looking for. It allows you to send a message to individual players (chatters). It allows for actions using "/me". The only thing it really needs is the capability to do a dice roll. Can someone point me to a site which might have some examples...

Hello, I'm doing an exercise to simulate rolling a pair of dice 36,000 times, then count and display how many times the simulation rolls each possible sum. For some reason each time I run my simulation, one or more of my sums is zero, which is highly unlikely. So I'm sure there's a bug in my code. But I can't tell what it is, even after re-reading it several times. Can someone give me a hint? Here is my code:

I am a c++ beginner and i am working on a dice loop lab. This program should roll two dice (each dice is from 1 to 6) and then total them together.

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
