Hi, this is the first time that i'm using this forum, i need some help with a school project that is basically a counter that counts from 99 to 00, but i need to control both digits using 2 push button, until there i did everything without problem, but the main problem is that i don't know how to add the start/pause button in my circuit, i would like to know if someone can help me, i'm using the IC 74ls192 to control the digits of the 7 segments display and i'm using the 74ls47 to connect it to display (the pin 11 is not doing anything for now), also when the counter hits 00 he must stop without restarting itself.

Welcome to AAC!

RUN/STOP are two separate logic states.
You can control and store logic states with flip-flops. Try learning how a J-K flip-flop works.

i tried to use that but i don't really get how i could connect the 74ls192 into a J-K flip-flop, i checked the datasheet but it didn't help alot

Logic gates are called "gates" for a logical reason. They control the flow of digital data through the gate.

Draw the truth-table of a 2-input AND gate.
Inputs are labelled A and B. Output is labelled F.
The boolean equation of an AND gate can be written as:
F = A AND B
or
F = A.B

Learn how A can control the flow of B using an AND gate.
Inversely, learn how B can control the flow of A.

so basically after all the connections in the clock I need to somehow find a way to make the condidition of an AND gate works, so the output of the AND gate i have to connect in my IC to make my project works ?

A counter needs a CLOCK signal in order to go from one state to the next. If no CLOCK is present the counter does not change state.

Use a 2-input AND gate to control the flow of the CLOCK.

i already did that once, but my main doubt is where do i connect the output from AND

the main problem is that the condition is that both run and stop/pause must be the same button.

That is not a problem. It is a very common mode of operation and implementation.
You have to learn how to do this. It is at a basic level of understanding digital circuitry, same as how to use gates.

Do you know how to apply an AND gate in a digital design?

Most of us prefer schematics to wiring diagrams.

Show us a schematic of your attempts at implementing start/pause.
i'm sorry that it's look like that ugly because i'm not very good at drawing, but this is what i have for now with my project, i can make it count down automatically, but i need to use a button to do that, and it also restart to 99 instead finish to 00 (also there is no resistor because the program that i'm using to build that don't need it)

Mod: cleared up your image.
