Put a cout inside your loop and tell me what you see.

It seems to me that there is no action inside the block of your do loop, which changes the state of the computation.

Therefore, the termination condition will never change. Ergo, the loop will execute exactly once, or it will never exit, depending on the values of the variables in the exit condition.

Good luck. Weaknessforcats is _really_ _really_ good. Listen to what she says, and you'll learn a lot.

First of all
do{

}while (number != Rand);

its going to loop forever (INFINITE LOOP).

The reason cout<< "Got it"; Never showed was because the do-while loop never terminated thus not allowing cout to print message to screen. Put cout<< "Got it"; inside do-while loop. Remember that the message will print forever so make sure you terminate it. In order to terminate it you need to make number equal Rand. (*HINT HINT!) =)
