Hello,

I solved the question by doing it a different way. They both print out the same response. I would just like to know the difference between my response and the response that codecademy gives. This is what I had come up with but it kept giving me an error but producing the correct answer.

for num in 1…9 {
if num % 2 == 0{
print(num)
}else{
continue
}

}

print(“Who do we appreciate?”)
print(“YOU!”)

edit
As I type this out I think I figured out that mine does it by looking if the remainder is 0 and if it is, it prints out the number. It seems that codecademys answer is if it has a remainder it skips it over and prints out the other numbers that are divisible by 2. I would just like confirmation about my thought process.

I’m glad you wrote because I am stumped. I feel like I missed something here. What you said in your edit makes sense–using your info with what I know, I’m hoping I won’t need to use their solution. I’ll come back and edit this if I have anything useful to say. Again, thanks!

Edit: We’re asked to look if the number is ODD, so regardless of correct answer after running, that’s what our code is to be focused on.

I’m still going to need to go over this a few times and do some research.

Good luck with the rest!

The answer here is in the semantics. The question asked that you put the continue keyword within the if statement. Therefore, although your code comes to the same conclusion, you are “technically” doing it in the reverse.

for num in 1…9{
if num % 2 == 1{
continue
}else{
print(num)
}

}

print(“Who do we appreciate?”)
print(“YOU!”)

I did it the other way a few times myself!

Hope this helps!

There are multiple ways to do this it seems:
1) check if remainder not 0

for num in 1…9 {
if num % 2 != 0{
continue
}else{
print(num)
}
}

print(“Who do we appreciate?”)
print(“YOU!”)

2) check if remainder is more than 0

for num in 1…9 {
if num % 2 > 0{
continue
}else{
print(num)
}
}

print(“Who do we appreciate?”)
print(“YOU!”)

3) also, this works too

for num in 1…9 {
