    it seems ok... you need to include: import random # the random number module at the top, and it seems to work.

    Thanks for taking a look at the code for me…Yeah; I got the top of the code to work fine. The problem was incorporating the ask_number function into the program. The challenge is to take a project I did out of chapter 3 which was guess my number and modify it by reusing the ask_number function.
