I've figured out that out but I have a new issue. I like what you are doing 
making me figure this out as it helps me remember. I'll post the new code and 
the issue. If you could give me a hint that would be great.


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "D:/Python/random.py", line 6, in <module>
    computer_number = number.randint(1, 100)
NameError: name 'number' is not defined

Here is the most recent code

# mynumber.py
# this game uses a home made function
import random

#think of a number
computer_number = number.randint(1, 100)

#create the function is_same()
def is_same(target, number):
        if target == number:
        elif target > number:
        return result

# start the game
print("hello. \nI have thought of a number between 1 and 100.")

#collect the user's guess as an interger
guess = int(input("Can you guess it? "))
#Use our function
higher_or_lower = is_same(computer_number, guess)
#run the game untill the user is correct
while higher_or_lower != "win":
    if higher_or_lower == "low":
         guess = int(input("Sorry, you are too low. Try again."))
        guess = int(input("Sorry your are too high. Try again."))

    higher_or_lower = is_same(computer_number, guess)

#end of game
input("Correct!\nWell Done\n\n\nPress RETURN to exit.")
