# Compound Looping a code

### Ignore! I apologize I realized python uses for x in range() for its while loops

``````#Point Calc System

from random import randint
team1 = 0
team2 = 0
winloss = 0
check = 0
x = 0
i = 0

#while x < 6:  - Didnt work, probably formatting issue -
#x += 1
#Runs best of 3 games
while i < 3:
i = i + 1

#2 = win // 1 = loss
winloss = randint(1,2)
check = check + winloss
print("Check = ",check)

if winloss == 2:
team1 = team1 + 2
print("win ",team1)
else:
team2 = team2 + 2
print("loss ",team2)

#Test to see if a Team won 2/3 battles or won 2 in a row.
if team1 > team2 and check == 5:
team1 = team1 + 2
print("team1 wins",team1)

elif team1 > team2 and check == 6:

elif team2 > team1 and check == 4:
team2 = team2 + 2
print("team2 wins",team2)

elif team2 > team1 and check == 3:

else:
#Should never be seen.
print("error")
``````

I thought adding another while loop over top would have worked but it did not, adding a simple: while x < 6: x+=1... didnt work.

Most likely, you had an Indentation Error.

If you run Python in a terminal with spaces in front of your code

``````>>>   x = 1
File "<stdin>", line 1
x =5
^
IndentationError: unexpected indent
``````

This one execute with no issue

``````>>>x = 1
``````

With that said, the below code executes with no issue after getting rid of the incorrect spaces.

``````#Point Calc System

from random import randint
team1 = 0
team2 = 0
winloss = 0
check = 0
x = 0
i = 0
while x < 6:
x += 1
#Runs best of 3 games
while i < 3:
i = i + 1
#2 = win // 1 = loss
winloss = randint(1,2)
check = check + winloss
print("Check = ",check)

if winloss == 2:
team1 = team1 + 2
print("win ",team1)
else:
team2 = team2 + 2
print("loss ",team2)

#Test to see if a Team won 2/3 battles or won 2 in a row.
if team1 > team2 and check == 5:
team1 = team1 + 2
print("team1 wins",team1)

elif team1 > team2 and check == 6:

elif team2 > team1 and check == 4:
team2 = team2 + 2
print("team2 wins",team2)

elif team2 > team1 and check == 3:

else:
#Should never be seen.
print("error")
``````

### Note : Also remember to not mix tab and spaces (in your indentation inside a while loop or if/else statement)
