Python Python Basics (2015) Letter Game App Even or Odd Loop

Using the "return" data.

At this point I believe my issue is using the "return" information from the even_odd function. I believe I'm suppose to set the function its self to a particular variable and then get the print statement based on the outcome but am unsure of the syntax. Any help or insight would be great.

import random
while start is True:
    num= random.randint(1,99)
    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

        if num % 2 == 0:
            print("{} is even".format(num))
            print("{} is odd".format(num))

I hope you understand, my English is not too good. The return function works as print, but instead of displaying something on the screen, will send it elsewhere, in a function or elsewhere. From there you can take it and use it wherever you want. If I'm wrong, please correct me.
