    # If % 2 is 0, the number is even.
    # Since 0 is falsey, we have to invert it with not.

You have the right concepts but you have wrapped your code around the function even_odd instead of calling the function from your code.

You don't need to alter the provided function to solve the challenge. Instead, place your while code after the provided function.

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