Multiplication Quiz

 

November 15

 

Objective

To gain experience writing programs with random numbers and nested control structures.


 

Task

For this assignment, you will write a program to quiz the user on multiplication problems. The program will ask the user how many problems they want to solve, and then generate that many problems randomly. At the end of the problem, it will tell the user how many problems they got right, along with the percentage.
