In my last web development class, our professor showed us how to do a simple dice game with JavaScript and HTML. With this program, it would roll a single die, and then calculate how many times a given number was rolled out of a certain number of rolls.

For an assignment, he now wants us to take this same program, but to now have it done with 2 dice.

Here is some of my JavaScript and HTML that makes the program work:




How would I go about doing this for 2 dice?

Dan,
Take it slow. Can you do any of these (in order)

1) Create another variable like numberOfRolls2
2) Give it a random value.
3) Make the totals array bigger. How many outcomes are there now?
4) Point to a different spot in the array

I actually figured it out.

I just figured out that I had to change the number of outcomes to 12, and then make a separate rollDice() function which I called 2 times.

Here's how I did it:

Dan,
Good job! Thanks for sharing that you got it.
 
Blood pressure normal? What do I change to get "magnificent"? Maybe this tiny ad?
