# i don't get it

looks ok to me?

even.py
```import random
start=5

while start==True:
rand=random.randint(1,99)
if even_odd(rand)==True:
print("{} is even",format(rand))
else:
print("{} is odd",format(rand))
start=start-1

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
```

MOD

I was able to get your code to pass with three changes.

• moved `even_odd` definition ahead of use.
• compare 'start' in while. If start is non-zero it is "truthy"
• fixed format typos by replacing comma with period.
```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:
rand=random.randint(1,99)
if even_odd(rand)==True:
print("{} is even".format(rand))
else:
print("{} is odd".format(rand))
start=start-1
```

Try defining the function before using it. Also, it just feels wrong to me to compare start to False, compare it to 0 instead

Hey Miguel, Moving the function def earlier is correct. However, comparing to False or True, or comparing to the "truthiness" of an object is the Pythonic Way.

oh and try

from random import randint

and then you can use randint on its own

In Python it is OK to import a module like `random` then use `random.randint`. This keeps the current name space clean and prevents collisions between similarly name objects from different modules. It also helps a code reviewer know which package an object came from without having to scroll back to the top of a long file.
