# How do I stop this from repeating?

## Issue

I am new to coding. It works alright until you guess a number. then it says either higher or lower eternally. Please help me understand what I’ve done wrong. I have tried searching the internet and trying to retype some of the code but it won’t work. I am trying to make a conversation as well as a mini guess the number game.

Here’s my Code

``````# Conversation A

import random

print("Answer all questions with 'yes' or 'no' and press ENTER")

print('Hello I am Jim the computer')
z = input('How are you? ')
if z == 'Good' or z == 'Great' or z == 'good' or z == 'great':
print("That's great!")
else:
print("Oh. That's sad. I hope you feel better.")
a = input("what's your name? ")
print(a + "? Thats a nice name.")
b = input('Do you own any pets? ')
if b == 'yes' or b == 'Yes':
print("That's cool. I love pets!")
else:
print("That's a shame, you should get a pet. ")
c = input("Do you like animals? ")
if c == 'yes' or c == 'Yes':
print("Great! Me too!")
else:
print("Oh that's sad. They're really cute. ")

d = input("Do you want to see a magic trick? ")
if d == "yes" or d == "Yes":
input("Ok! Think of a number between 1-30. Do you have it? ")
print("Double that number.")
print("Now divide by 2...")
if y == 'yes' or y == 'Yes':
print("Yay i got it right! I hope you like my magic trick.")
else:
print("Oh that's sad. I'll work on it. I really like magic tricks and games.")
else:
print("Ok. Maybe next time. I love magic tricks and games!")

e = input("Do you want to play a game with me? ")
if e == "yes" or e == "Yes":
randnum = random.randint(1,100)
print("I am thinking of a number between 1 and 100...")

if e == 'no' or e == 'No':
print("oh well see you next time" + a + '.')

guess = int(input())

while guess is not randnum:
if guess == randnum:
print("Nice guess " + a + "! Bye, have a nice day!")
if guess < randnum:
print("Higher.")
if guess > randnum:
print("Lower.")
``````

## Solution

You need to add a `break` statement when you want stop looping and move the `input` for `guess` inside the loop so you don’t exit before printing the statement:

``````while True:
guess = int(input())
if guess == randnum:
print("Nice guess " + a + "! Bye, have a nice day!")
break
``````

Edit: Also, you dont want to use `is` every time: Is there a difference between "==" and "is"?
