I have to write a program using the Monte Carlo Method to estimate the average number of bottles of Boost someone would have to drink to win a prize.

So far, I have prompted the user for the number of trials (1 trial = the times it takes until the winning cap is found). I have to conduct at least 1,000 trials. The problem is, I can't get it to print correctly. If I want 20 trials, it only prints about 5 numbers, and they are printed in increasing order.

Here is what I have so far:

//import the classes import java.io.IOException; import java.util.Scanner; import java.io.File; import java.util.Random; public class BottleCapPrize { public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException { Scanner in = new Scanner(System.in); Random rand = new Random(); int count = 0; System.out.print("Number of Trials: "); int numTrials = in.nextInt(); //randomly generate the value of the "guessing" cap int randBottleCap = rand.nextInt(5)+1; //Loop to increment through the number of trials for(int i = 1; i <= numTrials; i++) { int winningCap = rand.nextInt(5)+1; //check to see if the "guessing" cap is equal to the winning cap if( randBottleCap != winningCap) { count++; randBottleCap = rand.nextInt(5)+1; } else { System.out.println(count); } } } }
