Project Description

This assignment requires the use of random numbers. You must include the <cstdlib> and <ctime> header files to allow access to rand() and srand(), respectively. These will be discussed in class. The program will implement a “guessing game.?? Ask the user for a number in the range of 1 through 100, inclusive. If the guess is larger than the random number you generated in the range of 1 through 100, inform the user that the guess was too high. If the guess is too low, say so, and when the guess matches the random number, say so! Also, tell the user how many guesses were required. What should you do if the user inputs an invalid guess? Suppose the user enters 0 or 200? You should allow only valid guesses. Therefore, keep asking for guesses until the user enters a number between 1 and 100, inclusive. Run the program 3 times and print the results (note: be sure to use some invalid guesses to test that part of your logic). Remember to print an error message (with the number) when an invalid guess is made. Code a function named, guess(), that will return a number in the range 1 to 100, inclusive. As discussed in class, the function, rand(), will return a random number in the range 0 to MAX, where MAX is a predefined constant (maybe 32767, or ??). Obviously, you must modify the random number to be in the range from 1 to 100, inclusive. Also, random numbers are generated using “seed?? values. Unless you change the seed each time the program is executed, the program will generate the same sequence of random numbers. This makes the game trivial once the user realizes that the random numbers are always the same! To avoid this problem, use srand() to “seed?? the random number generator. You use srand() only once in your program (not in a loop!) to change the seed value. This will cause the program to generate a different sequence of random numbers each time the program is executed! The exact function invocation is:

srand(time(NULL)); //use the system clock to generate a seed

Code the program to allow the user to play the game multiple times and display the average number of guesses at the end of the game. Suppose the user played the game 5 times and the number of guesses for each game was: 7, 4, 5, 5, and 8. The average number of guesses would be: 5.80. Also, allow the user to enter either an uppercase Y or a lowercase y to continue with another game!

## Deliverables
