CSci 1101 Lab 5. Due Thursday, Feb. 25 at 11:59pm

Work in groups of two.

Loops exercise (10 points)

Write a program that uses php function rand() to simulate a roll of a six-sided die. Write a loop to find 5 random rolls, print them out, add them all together by keeping a running total, and display the sum.
Some hints: start by writing a loop to repeat the roll of a die 5 times. In the loop store the die value in a variable and print out the variable. Once you get this to work, think of how you would find the sum. You need an extra variable to accumulate the sum. Think of what that variable should be before the loop and how it changes in the loop. Print the variable after the loop.
