In Topic: Beginner Python 3.0 While Loop Issue

02 July 2011 - 10:48 AM

This is a pretty complicated code you've put together for such a simple thing :cool:. I see that the code that I came up with was very similar to the poster before me, but I'll put it down anyways:
first_num = int(input("First number: "))
sec_num = int(input("Second number: "))

def div5(first_num, sec_num):
        for num in range(first_num, sec_num):
            if num % 5 == 0:
                return num

if abs(first_num - sec_num) <= 6:
    list_1 = sorted([first_num, div5(first_num, sec_num), sec_num])
I'm a beginner myself, so I apologize for any errors, but it ran correctly for me.

Thanks a lot. Yeah, I don't know why, but for some reason IDLE was marking the error in a different spot. But sure enough, when I fixed the error you saw the program loaded without any trouble. The code I wound up using went
print("You got", right, right / len(questions) * 100,
    "% right out of", index)
This seems to work. Thanks for spotting that error, I had completely overlooked it. The code's working now.

Thanks for replying,
Sorry about that, I'm new. I left a comment in the code where I was hitting the problem so that anyone looking at the code would see it, but to clarify, it's towards the bottom right before the end in the section that designates what each of the options should do. It's on the line if choice == 1:. Thanks again.
