Thank you but actually whatever number I get from either 1 to 28,
each number represent a property name such as "Reading Railroad",
"Judy Avenue", "Pacific Gas and Electric", etc., etc.

For example:

if x = 1 then print "Mediterranean Avenue"
if x = 2 then print "Baltic Avenue"
if x = 28 then print "Boardwalk"

Yes, I am using the property names from the game, Monopoly. I am
using them in conjunction with of playing a lottery game and using
Python to determine if I won anything from the numbers drawn and
being compared with what numbers I purchased.

Of course, the proper format in Python would be:

if x == "01":
     print "Mediterranean Avenue"
if x == 28:
     print "Boardwalk"

Again, thanks for your input.
