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

Help! I can't make my code work.

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 got the comment that Task 1, which is "import random" is not working. I am not sure what's wrong here.

import random

start = 5

def even_odd(num):
    # If % 2 is 0, the number is even.
    # Since 0 is falsey, we have to invert it with not.
    return not num % 2

while start: 
    n_num = random.randit(1,99)       
    if even_odd(n_num): 
        print("{} is even".format(n_num))
        print("{} is odd".format(n_num))
    start -= 1

Hi Inggrid,

You just have a small typo. You missed the second "n" in "randint"
