# I don't know what I did wrong but I keep getting the error "wrong number of prints"

I keep getting the same error. i have no idea what i did wrong

even.py
```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 == True:
random_number = random.randint(1.99)
number = even_odd(random_number)
if number == 0:
print("{} is even").format(random_number)
else:
print("{} is odd").format(random_number)
start - 1
```

Hi Dylan, you have a few minor issues in your code.

1. While Condition

The variable `start` is a number, so it doesn't really make sense to check to see if it is equal to `True` otherwise the `while` loop will never run. Probably best to have the condition being `start > 0`, but there are other ways.

```while start > 0:
```

2. Generating Random Integer

Probably just a typo, but you need a comma between the two numbers, not a dot.

```random_number = random.randint(1, 99)
```

3. Odd or Even Test Condition

The `even_odd` method returns `True` (if the number is even) or `False` (if the number is odd). You are storing this Boolean value in a variable called `number`, which can be a little misleading (maybe you want to rename it). Since A Boolean is either `True` or `False` the conditional check can be shortened (and comparing it to 0 doesn't make much sense).

```if number:
print...
else:
print...
```

4. Correct Brackets Around Print Statements

The `format` method is on the string, not the `print` function, so make sure to call it appropriately.

```print("{} is even".format(random_number))
```

5. Decrementing Start

Simply subtracting `1` from `start` will not change the value of start. You have to reassign the decreased value to `start`.

```start = start - 1
# or shorthand
start -= 1
```

Putting everything together

```start = 5
while start > 0:
random_number = random.randint(1, 99)
number = even_odd(random_number)
if number:
print("{} is even".format(random_number))
else:
print("{} is odd".format(random_number))
start -= 1
```
