I suspect you have used another language before and
Python's for loop is foxing you.

You don;t need to convert to an int, i is already an int.
But worse, you are here converting the number 1 to
an int every time through the loop. I don't think thats
what you want! range(25) will produce a list of numbers
from 0 to 24. The for loop will set i to each number in
And writelines expects a list of strings but you are
giving it one string. You only need write() here. And
of course you don't need x so you can just write
the string version of i: str(i) plus a new line (\n)
> x += 1
And you don't need this at all because the loop
will automatically get the next number.
Try those changes, it should simplify things significantly.
You might find a quick read through my loops and file
handling topics useful too.
