everytime I compile this code it generates the same number
#include<iostream>
#include<cstdlib>

using namespace std;
int main()
{
   int randnum = rand();
   int num = ((randnum % 50)+1),a;//makes a random number
   cout<<"you got a "<<num;
   cin>>a;
   return 0;
}

Look up the help for srand(). It seeds the pseudo random number generator. Usually you use the time as an argument to it.
