I am working on problem set #2 question number 1 and I cannot figure out how to compute all possible permutations of the variables I have created... http://pastebin.com/u4Dac2gK It is not finished yet, but I think I will need to set up three while loops to test each set of permutations and then add one to the base variable each time.

    nested loops should work

    alright so I gave a try to nest loops within each other and I ended up with an interesting mess. The pastebin file has been updated with the current version of the code including the 3 nested loops I made. What exactly is going wrong here http://pastebin.com/u4Dac2gK

    I like how you used those for nested for loops, I am going to re-write the code with it and then I will put it up on pastebin for criticism. Thanks for the help.

    alright I am all finished with my new code. I have to say this ps taught me so much, and thank you so much for your help with xrange()... I wanted to know where I could find out more about the function and figure out how it is working. code is here, take a look and criticize. http://pastebin.com/u4Dac2gK

    The Python documentation should be installed on your computer - I think it is easier to use than the on-line version. xrange is a built-in function. reading the documentation is a must, especially the tutorial. If you are using windows and Idle, you should be able to access the documentation with F1 from within Idle. . here is the on-line link (Python v2.72) http://docs.python.org/ . xrange: http://docs.python.org/library/functions.html#built-in-functions
