Hey all,

I'm new to python.  I keep getting an error when running this.
I'm sure there is an easy fix but I can't figure it out.
What am I doing wrong?  How do I fix it?

def even_odd_round(num):
 	if(round(num,2) + .5 == int(round(num,2)) + 1):
 	     if(int(num,0) % 2):		#an odd number	
 	     	rounded_num = round(num,2) + .1
  	     else:                              #an even number
 	       	rounded_num = round(num,2) - .1
    	rounded_num = int(rounded_num)
    	return rounded_num


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<interactive input>", line 1, in ?
  File "<interactive input>", line 3, in even_odd_round
TypeError: int() can't convert non-string with explicit base
