So for a True result when arg%2 is zero, you must negate the logic


Another question.

Outcome = (t-32)/1.8
>outcome2 = round (outcome) does not work because the argument must be a string 
>or a number 
Assuming t is a number the outcome will be a number so it should work.

It helps if you cut n paste the real code and the real error message, 
do not just summarise. Python error messages are extremely helpful, 
but only if we can see them.
