It looks like you have a loop that keeps the program from ending.

It's hard to read without proper formatting (Use the instructions for code formatting in the Markdown Cheatsheet pop-up below the "Add an Answer" area. :arrow_heading_down:), but it looks like you added a loop around the part that asks the user for a count and gets the answer.

The prompt and input should only happen one time, and if the answer is good, it should output some "Yay!"s. If the answer is not good, it should print an error message. Either way the program should end.

Also, be sure to output the exact error messages given in the instructions.
