    Default Guessing game

    So I have the main part of the code which is letting the user guess a randomly generated number by the computer, but I now need to display how many guesses it took the user to guess the number.

    Code so far:

    import java.util.*;

    class guessing {
    public static void main(String args[]){
    Random number = new Random();
    Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);

    int computernumber,guess,counter;
    counter = 0;

    computernumber = 1+number.nextInt(20);

    System.out.println("The computer has picked a number from 1 to 20, try and guess it");

    System.out.println("Enter your guess: ");
    guess = input.nextInt();


    while(guess!=computernumber){
    if(guess>computernumber){
    System.out.println("Your guess was high.");
    }else if(guess<computernumber){
    System.out.println("Your guess was low.");
    }else{
    System.out.println("Congratulations, you guessed it");
    }
    System.out.println("Enter your guess: ");
    guess = input.nextInt();
    }
    System.out.println("Congratulations, you guessed it");



    }
    }

    So how would I do it?

    Create a variable and increment it every time the user guesses.
