Find the number! & FizzBuzz (A python challenge)

Hi team, I'm new here, Have been working with Infrastructure as Code for a few years but now i want to start my journey to true Developer.

Just wondering, how advanced a Python programer do people feel one needs to be in order to complete these sorts of tests on HackerRank etc?

Thanks Tommy

You do not need to be advanced at all. It is great experience to try problems that might be beyond your comfort level. You’ll be surprised that you may be better than you think. As a bonus, if you get past a challenge, you can see how others solve the challenge. It is here where new insights can be gained seeing alternative approaches to a problem.

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