Python Practice Creating and Using Functions in Python Practice Functions That's Odd

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 True or 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! :sparkles:

Thank you so much. I appreciate the help
