    Exclamation In Desperate Need Of Help! TEACHER WONT HELP ME

    The computer should randomly select 1 of 4 words: (HEARTS, DIAMONDS, CLUBS, SPADES)
    1000 times.
    Print out the statistics of the percentage of time each word was chosen.


    import java.util.Scanner;
    import java.util.Random;
    public class QuestionFive {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    int result;
    int hnum =0, cnum, dnum, snum;
    Scanner scan = new Scanner(System.in);

    for (int i = 0; i < 1000; i += 1) {

    // generate a random numbr between 0 - 3
    Random r = new Random();
    result = r.nextInt(4);
    System.out.println(result);

    // if the random number is zero assume it is hearts.
    if (result == 1) {
    System.out.println(i + " You drew Hearts");
    hnum = hnum + 1;
    }
    // else if the random number is 1 assume it is clubs
    else if (result = "CLUBS")
    cnum = cnum + 1;
    else if (result = "DIAMONDS")
    dnum = dnum + 1;
    else if (result = "SPADES")
    snum = snum + 1*/;
    }
    System.out.println("The chances of getting HEARTS is " + (hnum / 1000.00) * 100 + "%");
    System.out.println("The chances of getting CLUBS is " + (cnum / 1000) * 100 + "%");
    System.out.println("The chances of getting DIAMONDS is " + (dnum / 1000) * 100 + "%");
    System.out.println("The chances of getting SPADES is " + (snum / 1000) * 100 + "%")*/;
    }
    }

    Do you have any java programming questions about your program?

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:

    [code]
    **YOUR CODE GOES HERE**
    [/code]

    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
