This will ask for three different inputs which is not what you want. Can 
you modify it to ask for input just once?

That sounds about right.

OK, you have some of the pieces. Maybe it would help to write a more 
detailed pseudocode. I think it might be:

ask the user to pick a number
wait for the user to pick a number
pick a starting guess
   tell the user my guess
   ask if the guess is correct
   if the guess is correct
     congratulate myself
   if the guess is too high
     pick a lower guess
   if the guess is too low
     pick a higher guess

Can you turn this into code?
