Everything in the code works like I want it to except I need the code to end if a guess is higher than 10. it will display 'dumb' but also needs to end the program. I can't get it to break the code.
%%Guess Number Game
R=floor ( rand()*10 );
count=0;
for i=0:5
while(i~=5)
guess=input('Guess a number between 0 and 10')
if (R>guess)
disp('Your Guess Is Too Small')
elseif (R<guess)
disp('Your Guess Is Too Large')
elseif (R==guess)
disp('You are Correct! It is')
end
if (guess>10)
disp('DUMB')
break;
end
count=count+1
if count==3;
disp ('You Failed The Game, Try Again')
count=0;
break;
end
end
end

Here's what I just came up with. It will end it if a guess is higher than 10 and display dumb. However, it will end the game after 3 wrong guesses. After 3 guesses it should say you failed the game but let you try again lets say 4 more times and THEN end the whole code. Any insight?
%%Guess Number Game
R=floor ( rand()*10 );
count=0;
i=0
while(i<6)
guess=input('Guess a number between 0 and 10')
if (guess>10)
i=5
disp('DUMB')
end
if (R>guess)
disp('Your Guess Is Too Small')
elseif (R<guess)
disp('Your Guess Is Too Large')
elseif (R==guess)
disp('You are Correct! It is')
end
count=count+1
if count==3;
disp ('You Failed The Game, Try Again')
count=0;
break;
end
i=i+1
end

use 'return' instead of 'break'

Keep track of how many games and how many trials were done, and the status of the game as WonGame = 0 or WonGame = 1.
%%Guess Number Game
WonGame = 0;
GameCount = 0;
while ~WonGame
if GameCount >= 5
disp('You Failed The Game 5 Times! No more!')
break
end
R = randi(9); %floor( rand()*10 );
Guess = Inf;
count = 0;
while 1
%guess = round(input('Guess a number between 0 and 10: ')); %DID YOU WANT IT 0,..., 10? or 1,...,9???
guess = round(input('Guess an integer between 0 and 10: '));
if guess>=10 || guess <= 0
disp('DUMB. Integer must be > 0 and < 10.')
elseif (R>guess)
disp('Your Guess Is Too Small')
elseif (R<guess)
disp('Your Guess Is Too Large')
elseif (R==guess)
disp('You are Correct! It is')
WonGame = 1;
break
end
count = count + 1;
if count == 3
disp('You Failed The Guess in 3 Tries')
disp(['Answer was: ' num2str(R)]);
break
end
end
GameCount = GameCount + 1;
end
