Hey guys, just looking for some help on writing some pseudo code for my calculator which i made on python 3.3. I want it to be similar to my hangman pseudocode which can be seen here:

INPUT name
PRINT “Welcome + name”

INPUT difficulty
IF difficulty = 1:
	Words = “easy words”
IF difficulty = 2:
	Words = “medium words”
IF difficulty = 3:
	Words = “hard words”
IF difficulty = 4:

user INPUT guess
IF guess is in word:
	correct_guesses = correct_guesses +1
	OUTPUT guess into secret word
IF guess is not in word:
	incorrect_guesses = incorrect_guesses +1
	print hangman_pics

IF incorrect_guesses = 7:
	game over = true
	input “would you like to play again?”
	IF input = yes:
		restart code
	IF input = no:

IF correct_guesses = to len(word):
	game over = true
	print “Congratulations!”
	input “would you like to play again?”
	IF input = yes:
		restart code
	IF input = no:

The link to my calculator is attached and i would like the pseudo code to be based on it. Thanks!!

Conversion from python to pseudocode isn't at all difficult. But the point is, why would someone want to do so I have no idea(if this is a homework assignment, you have my sympathies). Speaking in a general way, Python is pseudocode. While doing the whole assignment for you would be against forum policy, I can give you a hint. Look for how you would convert the above psudocode into python code, what rules you would use. Then reverse them, and work on the given code.

I can believe, but why should I?
