Coin Flip Simulation Program in C++
 Posted by Samath Last Updated: January 07, 2021   14509

Write a program that simulates 10-flips of a coin. Write a function names coinToss that simulates the tossing of a coin. When you call the function, it should generate a random number in the range 1 through 2. If the random number is 1, the function should display “Head”, otherwise, “Tails”.

Every time head comes up, the player wins \$1; every time tail comes up, the player loses \$1. Write another function named calculateTotal that adds up the player’s winnings after 10 flips of the coin. Your program should produce random results.

Output:

Code:

```#include <string>
#include <time.h>
#include <cstdlib>
#include <ctime>
#include <iostream>
#include <windows.h>

using namespace std;
int coinToss();
float calculateTotal(int number, float money);

int main(int argv, char argc[])
{
int number;
float money = 0;
int tail = 0;

cout<<"\t\tMy Coin Flip Simulation Program"<<endl;

for(int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
{
number = coinToss();
if(number == 1)
{
money = calculateTotal(number,money);
}
else
{
cout<<"TAILS"<<endl;
money = calculateTotal(number,money);
tail ++;
}
Sleep(1000);
}

cout<<"Total tails: "<<tail<<endl;
cout<<"Total winnings: \$"<<money<<endl;

system("pause");
return 0;
}

float calculateTotal(int number, float money)
{
if(number == 1)
{
money = money + 1.0;
}
else
{
money = money - 1.0;
}
return money;
}

int coinToss()
{
int num;

srand ((unsigned) time(0));
num = rand()%2 + 1;

return num;
}```
