Bummer: Uh oh, I didn't get the correct value returned. It should have been 32. Instead, it was 1

how do i return the right number?

fizzbuzz.py
# enter your code below
def fizzbuzz(num):
    for num in range(1,151):
        if num %3 == 0:
            return 'Fizz'
        elif num %5 == 0:
            return 'Buzz'
        elif num %3 == 0 and num %5 == 0:

Hey Noor Hafiza Binti Ibrahim, I’ll leave a hint.

Walk through your code with num at 15. What will be returned? Why?

Hint: order matters!

Also, a for loop is not needed in the challenge. Simply use the num passed into the function for evaluation.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!

def fizzbuzz(num):
    if num % 3 == 0 and num % 5 == 0:
        return 'FizzBuzz'
    elif num % 3 == 0:
        return 'Fizz'
    elif num % 5 == 0:
        return 'Buzz'
    else:
        return str(num)

#now i got a Bummer: I did't get the correct value returned. It should have been 32. Instead, it was 32.
#what else did i miss inside my code?

Noor Hafiza Binti Ibrahim, you seem to have change the last return to str(num) from num. It should stay num.
