Python Python Basics (2015) Letter Game App Even or Odd Loop

Make a while loop that runs until start is falsey. Inside the loop, use random.

Alright, last step but it's a big one.

Make a while loop that runs until start is falsey.

Inside the loop, use random.randint(1, 99) to get a random number between 1 and 99.

If that random number is even (use even_odd to find out), print "{} is even", putting the random number in the hole. Otherwise, print "{} is odd", again using the random number.

Finally, decrement start by 1.

I know it's a lot, but I know you can do it!

Says task 1 is not running, I am not sure what I am doing wrong

import random

start = 5

while start:
    random_number = random.randint(1,99)
    if even_odd(random_number):
        print('{} is even'.format(random_number)
        print('{} is odd'.format(random_number)
    start -= 1

Where did the even_odd function go?! Don't delete it! :grin:

I hope this helps! :grin: ~Alex :zap:
