# Random Sequence Generator & Frequency Using Arrays

Hi all, I have one last problem for my C++ class and I can't figure this one out, please help in any way you can!!!

I need to return a random number from array n= {19, 50, 78, 161, 252}, loop it 1000 times and print the frequency of the 5 numbers obtained. Heres what I have so far.

const int n=5, ntimes=1000;
int freq[n]={0};
short int rndSeq[]={19,50,78,161,252};

printRand (freq[], rndSeq[], ntimes);

//main for loop to create random sequence
//this is what I can't seem to set up correctly!

//results

cout<<rndSeq[i]<<"occurred "<<
freq[i]<<" times."<<endl;

Sample output

19 occured 2055 times
50 occured 1986 times
78 occured 1962 times
161 occured 2079 times
252 occured 1919 times

I wish I could provide more code, but nothing I create makes an sense in the for loops that I am doing.

Thanks!

• You can use the following code (Using rand() func):
--------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------

:
: const int n=5, ntimes=1000;
: int freq[n]={0};
: short int rndSeq[]={19,50,78,161,252};
: int i,k;
:
: printRand (freq[], rndSeq[], ntimes);
:
: randomize();
:
: for(i=0;i<ntimes;i++)
: {
: k=rand()%n;
: freq[k]++;
: }
:
: //results
: for(i=0;i<n;i++)
: {
: cout<<rndSeq[i]<<"occurred "<<
: freq[i]<<" times."<<endl;
: }
:

: Sample output

: 19 occured 2055 times
: 50 occured 1986 times
: 78 occured 1962 times
: 161 occured 2079 times
