### dice game, iteration with selection

Hello, I am having a problem with the total bank calculating the improper amount of money held.
\$1.00 subtracted for each play. \$2.00 added for each win.

Ex:
"Sorry, you lost. Your bank is 9. Guess again?"
3
"Sorry, you lost. Your bank is 8. Guess again?"
2
"Sorry, you lost. Your bank is 7. Guess again?"
5
"Congrats. You won! Bank is now 10."
-------------
The bank should read 9 after winning the 4th guess.

I apologize for such obscene noobetry. Any hints would be faaaaaaaaantastic. Thank you.

My code:

 ``` #include #include using namespace std; int main() { char input; int guess; int ans; int banktot = 10.00; srand(time(0)); cout << "Welcome to the dice guess game." << endl; cout << "It costs \$1.00 to play." << endl; cout << "Would you like to continue? (y,n)" << endl; cin >> input; while (input == 'y') { cout << "Please enter your guess for the next roll. It only costs \$1.00 to play." << endl; cout << "If you are correct. I will pay you \$2.00: " << endl; cin >> guess; ans = (rand() %6) + 1; if (guess == ans) { banktot++; cout << "Winner! The dice rolled " << ans << ". Your bank is now " << banktot + 2.00 << "." << endl; } else if (guess != ans) { --banktot; cout << "Sorry, you lose. " << "The dice rolled " << ans << ". Your bank is now " << banktot - 1.00 << "." << endl; } continue; } while (input = 'n') { cout << "Thanks for playing. Your bank is " << banktot << "." << endl; break; } return 0; } ```

When they win, you add 1 to their bank then display bank+2...so you are essentially displaying bank+3. Also, the +2 you are displaying isn't actually changing the amount in their bank.
