Missing Library and a Typo

I forgot to add a c library, please add it for me. Also I'm bad at typing so fix my typo too.

Start file
#define MIN_NUMBER 1
#define MAX_NUMBER 100
#include <stdio.h>
#include <time.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int getGuess(){
    int c;
    int guess = 0;

    while(guess < MIN_NUMBER || guess > MAX_NUMBER){
        printf("Guess: ");
        scanf("%d", &guess);

        while((c = getchar()) != '\n' && c != EOF);
    }

    return guess;
}

int main(){
    srand(time(NULL));
    int number = rand()%(MAX_NUMBER-MIN_NUMBER+1)+MIN_NUMBER;

    printf("Let's start a game.\n");
    printf("I've picked a number between %d and %d\n",MIN_NUMBER,MAX_NUMBER);
    printf("Guess what it is and I'll tell you \n");
    printf("if it's higher or lower.\n");
    printf("You win if you guess it in 7 turns or less\n\n");

    int turn;
    for(turn = 0; turn < 7; turn++){
        int guess = getGuess();
        assert(guess>=MIN_NUMBER && guess<=MAX_NUMBER);

        if(guess < number){
            printf("Higher\n\n");
        }else if(guess > number){
            printf("Lower\n\n");
        }else{
            break;
        }
    }

    if(turn < 7)
        printf("\nYou Win!\n");
    else
        printf("You Lose the answer was %d.\n", number);

    return 0;

zulolosi: Text keycode in solutions is good again with vim 8.0.697, and is wrong between vim 7.4.1433 and 8.0.696. I tested with vim 8.0.647 this solution : <C-Home>xP<C-Right><C-Left><C-Right>wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwYpwwwRa<C-P><Esc>ZZ The keystrokes in vimgolf client: <fd-57>xP<fd-56><fd-55><fd-54>wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwYpwwwRa<C-P><Esc>ZZ Text keystrokes really used in order: <C-End>xP<C-Home><C-Right><C-Left>wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwYpwwwRa<C-P><Esc>ZZ

zulolosi: Now with vim 8.0.697, the keystroke in vimgolf client are (changed, +1): <fd-58>xP<fd-57><fd-56><fd-55>wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwYpwwwRa<C-P><Esc>ZZ

BBernardoni: Sorry for the resubmissions. I caught several solution that I didn't want to be possible. This should be the last one, even if I did miss something.

zulolosi: You forget to add a header file .h, not a library

BBernardoni: Yeah, you're right. I meant I forgot to include the header file for a library.

zulolosi: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3996651/what-is-compiler-linker-loader

BBernardoni: I did miss something. My intended solution was "G$xP9%YpWlcwa<C-P><Esc>ZZ" but I forgot 5G would do the same as 9%. In order to do that though I would have had to make the file 101 lines long.

zulolosi: Nice 9% to have a different approach ...
