Example text

Guess = input() The program now asks us for a guess. We type in our guess and that number is stored in a variable named guess. 41 Converting Strings to Integers with the int() Function 15. guess = int(guess) In line 15, we call a new function called int(). The int() function takes one argument. The input() function returned a string of text that player typed. But in our program, we will want an integer, not a string. If the player enters 5 as their guess, the input() function will return the string value '5' and not the integer value 5.

In line 29 (which is similar to the guess = int(guess) code on line 15), we call the new function str(), which returns the string form of an argument. We use this function because we want to change the integer value in guessesTaken into its string version because we can only use strings in calls to print(). Line 29 tells the player that they have won, and how many guesses it took them. Notice in this line that we change the guessesTaken value into a string because we can only add strings to other strings.

Now enter the same code again and the function call will probably return a different integer. This is 32 4 - Guess the Number because each time the randint() function is called, it returns some random number, just like when you roll dice you will get a random number each time. randint(1, 20) Whenever we want to add randomness to our games, we can use the randint() function. And we use randomness in most games. ) You can also try out different ranges of numbers by changing the arguments. randint(1, 4) to only get integers between 1 and 4 (including both 1 and 4).
