# Resolved: can anyone help me with this

num1 = int(input('enter a number'))

num2 = int(input('enter a number'))

while (num1 or num2 > 100) or (num1 or num2 < 0) or num1 == num2:

print(' must be diff num between 1-100, try again')

num1 = int(input('enter a number'))

num2 = int(input('enter a number'))

if num1 > num2:

for i in range(num2,num1+1):

print(i,end=' ')

else:

for i in range(num1,num2+1):

print(i,end=' ')

when i tried it this way, the code never runs the IF block of code, no matter what numeber i enter

Hey Amazigh,

Thank you for reaching out!

Let me address the conditions following the while-statement, namely:

`(num1 or num2 > 100) or (num1 or num2 < 0) or num1 == num2`

The way you've written the code, you have the following conditions:

- `num1`

- `num2 > 100`

- `num1`

- `num2 < 0`

- `num1 == num2`

Each of these conditions can be either `True`

or `False`

. Note that `num1`

(and `num2`

) can also be considered conditions and will be evaluated as `True`

for every integer that you enter. You can convince yourself of that by executing, for example, the following line of code:

`bool(2)`

which will return `True`

.

That being said, consider we enter the following numbers:

- `num1 = 71`

- `num2 = 72`

The conditions will be evaluated as follows:

- `num1 `

-> `True`

- `num2 > 100`

-> `False`

- `num1`

-> `True`

- `num2 < 0`

-> `False`

- `num1 == num2`

-> `False`

You therefore have at least one condition evaluated as `True`

. And since you are using the `OR`

logical operator, you will always obtain `True`

regardless of the outcome of the remaining conditions (remember that

- `TRUE OR FALSE = TRUE`

`- `

`TRUE OR TRUE = TRUE`

).

You will thus never reach the `if`

-statement.

The way you'd instead want your conditions to be is the following:

- `num1 > 100 `

- `num2 > 100`

- `num1 < 0`

- `num2 < 0`

- `num1 == num2`

In this way, you check whether both `num1`

or `num2`

are larger than 100 or smaller than 0.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,

num1 = int(input('enter a number'))

num2 = int(input('enter a number'))

while (num1 or num2) > 100 or (num1 or num2) < 0 or num1 == num2:

print(' must be diff num between 1-100, try again')

num1 = int(input('enter a number'))

num2 = int(input('enter a number'))

if num1 > num2:

for i in range(num2,num1+1):

print(i,end=' ')

else:

for i in range(num1,num2+1):

print(i,end=' ')

i changed the brackets to this :

while (num1 or num2) > 100 or (num1 or num2) < 0 or num1 == num2: and now it works.

Thank you
