### Need Help! Multi looping :(

I made a voting program in which you need to enter one number from 1 ~ 5.
the variables c,d,e,f,g are the number of votes for a certain item.
What I need to do is to determine what gender votes for a particular item,

For ex:
Item 1 : 5 people voted, 2 are males , 3 are females.

Item 2 : 6 people voted, 0 males , 6 females.

I already figured out on how to input the gender, but what I really
can't think of is how do I put it in the if function,

if (b==1){
c=c+1;}
else if (b==2){
d=d+1;}
else if (b==3){
e=e+1;}
else if (b==4){
f=f+1;}
else if (b==5){
g=g+1;}
Seems to be one of the most given homework. You may search for "vote" on top of this in "cplusplus.com" to find some hints.

Ok?

The cleanest way to do this would be to use a struct to hold all information about the candidates. Here is a example

 ``12345678910111213141516171819202122232425262728293031`` ``````// You struct to hold all info for the candidates struct candidates { // Holds the total votes they get. int votes; // Holds the total female votes they get int maleVotes; // Holds the total male votes they get. int femaleVotes; }; int main() { // Non working program but shows you the logic behind it. // Skiped a lot of stuff. candidates a, b, c, d, e; if (input == 1) { ++a.votes; if (gender == "male") ++a.maleVotes; else ++a.femaleVotes; } // And so on. }``````

If you don't want to make a struck then cross reference their input for their gender with "male" and "female" by adding another if loop and a else inside each of your if loops that will add 1 to either the maleVotes variable or femaleVotes variable.

Hope this helps a bit, let me know if you have any troubles or need more information.
