looks like a glitch but my answer is still wrong

not getting it keeps saying task 1 isnt working

even.py
```import random
start = 5
def even_odd(num):
num = random.randint(1,99)
while start = True:

if num % 2 = 0
print("{} is even".format(bobby)
start -= 1
else:
print("{} is odd".format(bobby)
start -= 1

# If % 2 is 0, the number is even.
# Since 0 is falsey, we have to invert it with not.
return not num % 2
```

I think you need to change your operator to equals using == vs. a single = which is just an assignment

i.e.

```if num % 2 == 0
```

Try that, maybe? MOD

The structure of your code got confused. The `while` loop should not be inside of the `is_even` function, but rather, it should be built below the function and calls `is_even` as needed.

In addition to the structure, there were many syntax errors in the above code:

• error line 5: need to use double-equals ==,
• error line 7: need to use ==, missing colon end of line
• error line 8: missing closing paren
• error line 11: missing closing paren
• use `while start:` instead of `while start == True:`
• use `num` instead of the undefined `bobby`

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

Here is what I did

```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 !=0:
num = random.randint(1, 99)
if even_odd(num) is True:
print("{} is even".format(num))
start -= 1
else:
print("{} is odd".format(num))
start -= 1
```
