Question description

While(input !=-1){

Cin>>input;

Int total = 0;

Cout << “Enter points earned “

<< “(or -1 to quit): “ ;

cin >> points;

while ( points !=-1) // -1 is the sentinel

{

total +=points;

cout << “Enter points earned: “;

cin >> points;

}

replace the inner cout with the outer cout so that you don't have duplicate print statements on the first iteration through the loop, and put a "cout<<total<<endl;" after the loop to check your answer (1+2+3+4+5=15). All-in-all, declaring points and total, the loop, printing total, and return 0, the whole main takes 9 lines (and you should not have to fix your math with a total++ after the loop (you don't get the point if you do (hint: does total necessarily need to be updated after the cin if points is initialized as zero?))
