# Number Guessing Python Project

## Number Guessing Python Project

(OP)
Hello All, I am working on a python project and I want to know the provided below sample code is correct or not? I have taken this source code on this source and this python project to guess the number after getting a few hints from the computer. So, the system will generate a number from 0 to 200 and ask the user to guess it after a clue. Every time a user gives a wrong answer, another hint pops up to make it easier for them. Can anyone tell me, Is it right or provide some other source code for the number guessing project.

#### CODE --> python

import random #bring in the random number
import time
number=random.randint(1, 200) #pick the number between 1 and 200

def intro():
print(name + ", we are going to play a game. I am thinking of a number between 1 and 200")
time.sleep(.5)

def pick():
guessesTaken = 0
while guessesTaken < 6: #if the number of guesses is less than 6
time.sleep(.25)
enter=input("Guess: ") #inserts the place to enter guess
try: #check if a number was entered
guess = int(enter) #stores the guess as an integer instead of a string

if guess<=200 and guess>=1: #if they are in range
guessesTaken=guessesTaken+1 #adds one guess each time the player is wrong
if guessesTaken<6:
if guess<number:
print("The guess of the number that you have entered is too low")
if guess>number:
print("The guess of the number that you have entered is too high")
if guess != number:
time.sleep(.5)
print("Try Again!")
if guess==number:
break #if the guess is right, then we are going to jump out of the while block
if guess>200 or guess<1: #if they aren't in the range
print("Silly Goose! That number isn't in the range!")
time.sleep(.25)
print("Please enter a number between 1 and 200")

except: #if a number wasn't entered
print("I don't think that "+enter+" is a number. Sorry")

if guess == number:
guessesTaken = str(guessesTaken)
print('Good job, ' + name + '! You guessed my number in ' + guessesTaken + ' guesses!')

if guess != number:
print('Nope. The number I was thinking of was ' + str(number))

playagain="yes"
while playagain=="yes" or playagain=="y" or playagain=="Yes":
intro()
pick()
print("Do you want to play again?")
playagain=input() 

### RE: Number Guessing Python Project

On a quick scan I can see at least 2 bugs in this code + a number of changes I would make to style

ill leave the bug finding to you ass you try to run the code (you will always learn far more from debuging yoursself)

stle sugestion ue fstrings - intead of

#### CODE --> python

print('Nope. The number I was thinking of was ' + str(number))

use

#### CODE --> python

print(f'Nope. The number I was thinking of was {number}'

it is easier to read & also save repeatedly converting int to str

I would also sugest that there are many better tutorials available on-line, the code provided in this one is not particularly "Pythonic"

I think you left a right parenthesis off there IPGuru

There are 10 kinds of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't.

I'm trying to cut down on the use of shrieks (exclamation marks), I'm told they are !good for you.

Indeed i did (can I get away with claiming it was deliberate to aide the op in their debughing skills )
