It doesn't look like you changed anything yet.

The instructions say "Re-write the code to use a do...while loop." So some of the changes involved will be:

  • the loop will start with "do"
  • the loop will end with "while" and the test condition
  • only one "prompt" will be needed (the one inside the loop)
