Hi @mishmercer2842930051, and welcome to the Codecademy Forums!
Yes, the “food for thought” question is a fine one. It is an invitation to be creative. You can simply think about it, or you can go so far as to write a function that provides an answer.

The “food” for thought" question:
- Food for thought: what number team are the two people next to you (26 and 28) on? What are the numbers for all 4 teams?
If we assume that your position and the total number of people are both variable, a function that reveals the numbers of the teams of your neighbor(s) would need two parameters. Be aware that you might be the only person there, in which case you would have no neighbors. If there are at least a few people there, you might be the first or the last to count off. In those cases, you would have only one neighbor. Otherwise, you would have two neighbors. Whatever the case, the function could
list of the teams of your neighbors.
Here is a suggested function header:
def teams_next_to_you(your_number, number_of_people):
As a challenge, would anyone care to write such a function?
