def jumpAndBackpedal(isMyNumber): ''' isMyNumber: Procedure that hides a secret number. It takes as a parameter one number and returns: * -1 if the number is less than the secret number * 0 if the number is equal to the secret number * 1 if the number is greater than the secret number returns: integer, the secret number ''' Pls correct the code such that it only return the secret number
It is not exactly clear what is intended here but here is some code that you should be able to adapt to do what you need. It tries to guess the number in num that is between 0 and 100. import random num = random.randrange(101) def secretNum(guess): if guess < num: return -1 elif guess == num: return 0 else: return 1 def jumpAndBackpedal(isMyNumber): min_guess = 0 max_guess = 100 done = False while not done: guess = (max_guess + min_guess) // 2 print(max_guess, min_guess, guess) res = isMyNumber(guess) if res == -1: min_guess = guess elif res == 1: max_guess = guess else: done = True return guess print("Secret Number was:", jumpAndBackpedal(secretNum))
