You're getting close, here are a few hints:

  • everything that is part of a loop must be indented
  • you'll only need one conditional test ("if")
  • you'll also only need one "print" statement

Thank you very much good sir, i was scratching my head for an hour shuffling every line etc etc, and i came to a line of code that i was confident that was right, but it wasnt. then i red this and removed the first print statement, now would u look at that, it worked xD
