What is the advantage of using the flag as opposed to simply using while (parseInt(guess) != randomNumber)?

Just wondering since both work fine for me. Maybe it's just a good opportunity to introduce the flag concept?

Hi Bryan Beaver

Great solution! I did want to introduce the concept of a flag, but there's no difference in how your solution and my solution work.
