Good job! For now, let’s store coordinates for the ship in the variables ship_row and ship_col. Now you have a hidden battleship in your ocean! Let’s write the code to allow the player to guess where it is.

number = raw_input("Enter a number: ") if int(number) == 0: print "You entered 0"

raw_input asks the user for input and returns it as a string. But we’re going to want to use integers for our guesses! To do this, we’ll wrap the raw_inputs with int() to convert the string to an integer.



Create a new variable called guess_row and set it to int(raw_input("Guess Row: ")).

Create a new variable called guess_col and set it to int(raw_input("Guess Col: ")).

Click Run and then answer the prompts by typing in a number and pressing Enter (or Return on some computers).
