# [SOLVED] IsInRange function

## Issue

I am currently in a Python class that is online and need to clear up this function thing. I understand you can put functions within functions, but does it even use it. Please look at the code below and help me out. The instructor wants to use the def IsInRange() to see if the numbers are in range, but I could only do it using while statements.

``````while (True):
#Get minimum range.
lowRange = int(input('Enter your Lower range: '))
#Get maximum range
highRange = int(input('Enter your Higher range: '))
#Nested while loop to test ranges.
while (highRange < lowRange and lowRange >highRange):
lowRange = int(input('Re-Enter your Lower range: '))
highRange = int(input('Re-Enter your Higher range: '))
#Prompts user for first number.
num1 = int(input('Enter your first number: '))
#Nested while loop to test num1 for range issues.
while (num1 > highRange or num1 < lowRange):
num1 = int(input('Re-Enter your first number in the range:'))
#Prompts user for second number.
num2 = int(input('Enter your second number:'))
while (num2 < lowRange or num2 > highRange):
num2 = int(input('Re-Enter your second number in the range: '))
#Run Range function.
def IsInRange(lr, hr, n1,n2):
lr = lowRange
hr = highRange
n1 = num1
n2 = num2
if n1 and n2 < highRange:
return True
else:
return False

def IsInRange2(lr, hr, n1, n2):
lr = lowRange
hr = highRange
n1 = num1
n2 = num2
if n1 and n2 > lowRange:
return True
else:
return False
``````

## Solution

You could try something like this

``````def IsInRange(lr: int, hr: int, n1: int, n2: int):
#Get min range
lowRange = int(input('Enter your Lower range: '))
#Get max range
highRange = int(input('Enter your Higer range: '))
#if statement to test ranges.
if (highRange < lowRange and lowRange >highRange):
lowRange = int(input('Re-Enter your Lower range: '))
highRange = int(input('Re-Enter your Higher range: '))
else:
pass
#Prompts user for first number.
num1 = int(input('Enter your first number: '))

if (num1 > highRange or num1 < lowRange):
num1 = int(input('Re-Enter your first number within the set range:'))
#Prompts user for second number.
num2 = int(input('Enter your second number:'))
if (num2 < lowRange or num2 > highRange):
num2 = int(input('Re-Enter your second number within the set range: '))

lr = lowRange
hr = highRange
n1 = num1
n2 = num2

if n1 and n2 < highRange:
print(True)
return True

elif n1 and n2 > lowRange:
print(True)
return True
else:
return False

IsInRange(1,10,2,3)
