stuck on the function practice to show a number is odd
Let's name the function is_odd and have it declare a single parameter. True if not divisible by 2 this is what I tried def is_odd(value): if value %2==0 value true

Hi there, Jenn Giulietti! It looks like you're doing well so far and I can tell you've given it some thought. However, this challenge requires that you
return a value of either
False. Remember also that boolean values in Python have a capital first letter.
You want to return
True if it is not evenly divisible by two.
You could either do an if/else statement here, or you could return the value of the expression directly. The latter technique might not be as obvious. Here's some pseudocode to get you started.
def is_odd(num): # if num % 2 is equal to 1 # return True # else: # return False
Hope this helps!
