 //this runs if the game is already in progress

 if ($Num >$x)
 {Echo "Your number, $Num, is too high. Please try again<p>";}
 //if the number they guessed is bigger than x, it lets them know their guess was too high

 elseif ($Num == $x)
 {Echo "Congratulations you have won!<p>";
 //if the number they guessed was correct it lets them know they won
 Echo "To play again, please Choose a Number 1-100 <p>";
 $x = rand (1,100) ;
 //it then starts the game again by choosing a new value for $x that they can guess
 }

 else 
 {Echo "Your number, $Num, is too low. Please try again<p>";}
 //if the answer is neither correct or to high, it tells them it is too low
 }

This section of code compares the winning number $x, to the number the user chose. It then either tells the user their guess was too high, too low, or they have won. If they win, it chooses another $x so they can play again.
