what is wrong with my code

Any tips

import random
start = 5
while start > 0:
    num = random.randint(1, 99)
    if even_odd(num):
        print("{} is even".format(num))
        print("{} is odd".format.(num))
    start = start - 1
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

Hi there! There are a couple of errors here, and one of them is about placement and the other is about syntax. You're trying to call even_odd before it's defined. You should leave the even_odd function where it was in the beginning and add your code below.

In the second print statement, you have a syntax error because there's an extraneous period/full stop:

#You wrote

print("{} is odd".format.(num))

#It should be

print("{} is odd".format(num))

Note the removal of the period/full stop between format and (num).

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
