The man behind the mask
I solved this exercise in the wrong way but it was recognized as right by code academy. I now figured out the right way to solve this by introducing a mask, but can someone explain why my original solution (see below) was recognized as right?
I also haven't really figured out how exactly bit masks work or what the point is in using them, so this might help to understand
Replace this line with your code. def check_bit4(input): if input >= 8: return 'on' else: return 'off'
