# A beginner's question

Hello, I have been working with qBasic for a while now, and now I need a little help with the RANDOMIZE TIMER command.

Let's say, I make my program throw 2 or more dices (Print random numbers from 1 to 6 two times) and make it throw the "dices" until both of the numbers are equal, so, I've gotten to that part, but now I must make the program tell me how many times were the dices thrown until the numbers were equal.

So, could you please, tell me the operator for that?

Thank you • : Hello, I have been working with qBasic for a while now, and now I

First throw 1 die and set a counter to 0. Then make a loop, which throws the other die and increases the counter. The loop should end if the second die is equal to the first. In psuedocode:
[code]
first = roll die
counter = 0
repeat
second = roll die
increase counter
until first = second
show counter
[/code]
