In the video example, the output shows the final result with the number of times the loop ran. So it needs to be done after the loop finishes.

But if you wanted to see every guess, you would put a "write" statement inside the loop. However, you might not want to unless you make the guessing range much smaller! As it is in the video, you would likely have many thousands of guesses.
