```The first block of code is full of errors and couldn't work so I have no idea what you were really doing!

The second block should kind of work. From your description I'd guess you have an indentation error such that most of the code that should be inside the loop is being bypassed. Are you sure the code you sent us exactly what you are running?

My students are creating a guess my number game.

They are trying to take this type of code (the flow of it), and turn it
into a code using a while loop.
Here is the first code

n = int(input('Guess my number: '))if (n <= 172 and n >= 174):
print('Correct')elif (n >= 174):
a = int(input('Go Down'))
if (a >= 174):
c = int(input('Go Down'))
if (c >= 174):
g = int(input('Last Guess Go Down'))
if (g == 173):
print('Correct')
elif (c <= 172):
i = int(input('Last Guess Go Up'))
if (i == 173):
print('Correct')
else:
print('Correct')
elif (a <= 172):
e = int(input('Go up'))
if (e >= 174):
f = int(input('Last Guess Go Down'))
if (f == 173):
print('Correct')
elif (e <= 172):
h = int(input('Last Guess Go Up'))
if (h == 173):
print('Correct')
else:
print('Correct')
else:
print('Correct')elif (n <= 172):
b = int(input('Go Up'))
if (b >= 174):
d = int(input('Go Down'))
if (d >= 174):
j = int(input('Last Guess Go Down'))
if (j == 173):
print('Correct')
elif (d <= 172):
m = int(input('Last Guess Go Up'))
if (m == 173):
print('Correct')
else:
print('Correct')
elif (b <= 172):
e = int(input('Go Up'))
if (e >= 174):
k = int(input('Last Guess Go Down'))
if (k == 173):
print('Correct')
elif (e <= 172):
l = int(input('Last Guess Go Up'))
if (l == 173):
print('Correct')
else:
print('Correct')
else:
print('Correct')else:
print('Correct')

Here is the code with the while loop
import random
n = (random.randint(0,100))
g = int(input('Guess my number, 0 to 100, you have 10 chances'))
c = 0
while (c < 10):
g = int(input('Guess my number, 0 to 100, you have 10 chances'))
c = c + 1
if (g >= n):
print('Lower!')
elif (g <= n):
print('Higher!')
elif (g == n):
break
if (g == n):
print('You guess my number! It took you ' + str(c) + ' tries!')

Everyone's code just keeps asking for numbers without giving feedback,
except for the longer code above.

Can you help us consolidate the code?  We are using random.randint.

Thank you!
