Guessing Game Rules

  1. Mr. Bui will think of a number from 0 to 100
  2. You will guess a number
  3. Mr. Bui will tell you to guess higher or lower
  4. You will guess again, and so on and so forth. The above process will only be repeated 7 times. If you do not guess the number within 7 times, then you lose.

How to Generate a Random Number

import random   # put this line at the very top
randomNum = random.randint(0, 100)   # generates a random integer between 0 and 100

Guessing Game Algorithm

  1. Generate a random number and store it in a variable named randomNum
  2. Create and initialize a variable that keeps track of the number of guesses: numberOfGuesses (What number do you think it should be initialized to?)
  3. Prompt the user to guess a number and store it in a variable: guess
  4. Increase numberOfGuesses by 1
  5. If the guess is higher than the random number, then print "Guess lower"
  6. If the guess is lower than the random number, then print "Guess higher"
  7. If the guess is equal to the random number, then print "You win!" and exit loop
    1. The python command to exit a loop is break
  8. If the number of guesses is equal to 7, then print "You lose!" and exit the loop using break
  9. Repeat steps 3 - 8 with a loop (while numberOfGuesses is less than or equal to 7)
