    Question HELP! Input, numbers, nonsense

    It may sound like an amateurish question, but it's driving me nuts.

    I have to program a situation where a user can specify how many elements of a certain operation are run.

    For instance having a mock horse race where there are seven horses (a, b, c, d, e, f, g ) and the winner is randomly calculated and the horse objects are contained within the method raceBegins

    But what if user says 'oh no, I only want 5 horses to race' how do I go about stopping the other other horses from interfering with this result?

    I am afraid I have come at this problem all wrong...

    Hello Corvus,

    Please post your code so we can see where your at..

    I'm sure this can be solved with an 'if/else' statement.
    Please use [highlight=Java] code [/highlight] tags when posting your code.
