If(popsicles%siblings==0): print('give away') else: print('eat them yourself') Use this condition

Martin how do u know that there are 2 siblings and 5 popsicles. You don't know that, it would be entered by a user, not u. There are 5 test cases, in each of them value of siblings and popsicles would be different, so change those values to int(input()) siblings = int(input()) popsicles = int(input()) And yeah, you dont know shares left too. As Justus said, use popsicles % siblings If it is not equal to 0 that means popsicles couldnt be divided among the siblings. % gives remainder ok? 9 % 3 = 0. 9 % 6 = 3.

Martin the only condition your code is checking is if sharesleft == 0. This is always true, so it always prints 'give away' Use this if popsicles %siblings== sharesleft:

And change those variables to user input

printf is used in C for printing something on screen as output

Martin I passed the test with this.. It's written in c# int siblings, popsicles; siblings = Convert.ToInt32(Console.ReadLine()); popsicles = Convert.ToInt32(Console.ReadLine()); if(popsicles%siblings != 0) { Console.WriteLine("eat them yourself"); } else { Console.WriteLine("give away"); }

I don't understand why the code below passes all the test. 2 siblings and 6 popsicles would result on 3 popsicles per kid. An odd number. I understood that every kid should receive an even number of popsicles. Yet the code below passes all tests. Go figure. if not popsicles % siblings: print('give away') else: print('eat them yourself')

I think I get it now. Every kid should receive the same amount of popsicles. It doesn't have to be an even number. I thought it should. That was my problem. Gotta learn english instead of programming haha. Sad day!

siblings = 10 popsicles = 20 #division sharesleft = 0 #no remainder if sharesleft is 0: print('give away') else: print('eat them yourself')
