I am programming a software which generates random (or close too) numbers. I am adding a multi-player feature to it. I ask the user how many players there are (variable P'), and how many turns in a row each player gets (variable e, for every). I also know the total amount of global turns that have taken place in the game (variable T).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Each player gets there turn via least to greatest. Player "1" goes first, and gets to play for "e" amount of times. Each time any player takes a turn, variable "T" increases by +1. How do I know who's turn is (variable p) given the values of P', T, and e? I make algerbra equations all the time, but I have been struggling with this for days and I just cant seem to get it. I hope somebody here is good enough at mathematics to derive an equation from this. I know you have to use the Fix() function in it, and you probably have to divide T by P' somewhere. But I do not have the equation I will draw a chart of how the game will fold out.

P' = 2 (it's a two player game) e=1 (Each player gets to play one time in a row)

remember...T = Total turns in the game p = Who's turn it should be

T p

-------

1 1

2 2

3 1

4 2

5 1

6 2

7 1

P' = 2 (it's a two player game) e=2 (Each player gets to play two times in a row)

remember...T = Total turns in the game p = Who's turn it should be

T p

-------

1 1

2 1

3 2

4 2

5 1

6 1

7 2

P' = 2 (how many players there are) e=3 (Each player gets to play three times in a row)

remember...T = Total turns in the game p = Who's turn it should be

T p

-------

1 1

2 1

3 1

4 2

5 2

6 2

7 1

again, I need to know p with only knowing "P'", "T", and "e". If I can draw a diagram of it on paper, I know it can be done mathematically

Thank you very much
