# wrong number of prints

can someone give me a hint how to fix this? import random def even_odd(num): while (start): rand_num=random.randint(1,99) if rand_num%2 ==1 : print("{} is odd".format(rand_num)) start -=1

```# If % 2 is 0, the number is even.
# Since 0 is falsey, we have to invert it with not.
return not num % 2
```

start = 5

even.py
```import random
def even_odd(num):
while (start):
rand_num=random.randint(1,99)
if rand_num%2 ==1 :
print("{} is odd".format(rand_num))
start -=1

# If % 2 is 0, the number is even.
# Since 0 is falsey, we have to invert it with not.
return not num % 2

start = 5
```

Mona, the while loop needs to be outside the even_odd() function, and called in that function. Something along these lines:

```import random

start = 5

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

while start:
num = random.randint(1, 99)
if even_odd(num):
print("{} is even".format(num))
else:
print("{} is odd".format(num))

start -= 1
```

Good luck!

Very sorry about that. I've edited it so it is now correct!
