I printed the random number before guessing and got stuck My code always makes me enter 3 numbers and i lost every time even when i'm right. Please help i can't find something wrong

``````from random import randint

random_number = randint(1, 10)
print random_number
guesses_left = 3

while guesses_left > 0:
if  guess == random_number:
print "Congratulations! You win!"
break
else:
guesses_left = guesses_left - 1
else:
print "You lose!"``````

Hi, @smertunay,

See the documentation for the raw_input function. That function ...

... reads a line from input, converts it to a string ...

You are assigning that string to `guess`, and then comparing it to an `int`.

See the documentation for the int function, and use it to convert the user's input to an `int` prior to the comparison. You could convert it in the same line in which you assign it to `guess`.

Thank you so much!

if int(guess) == random_number:
print "Congratulations! You win!"
break

The conversion of the user's input to an `int` can also be performed this way ...

``guess = int(raw_input("Your guess: "))``

In that case, the test would become ...

``if guess == random_number:``

That's better. Thank you again !
