# The Solution, Converting the player guess into an int?

I assumed that this bit of code would convert the player guess without causing an exception. However, when testing the game the player cannot enter a number with a decimal even if it is a whole number e.g 3.0 for 3

```  try:
player_num = int(guess)
except:
print("That's not a whole number!")
break
```

```a = 5.5
float(a)
```

```  try:
