In this challenge we are going to write a Python program that automatically generates six random numbers (from 1 to 50) and display them on the screen, sorted in ascending order.

The program will need to make sure that each number is unique; the same number cannot come twice in the selection of six selected numbers.

#### Learning Objectives

By completing this code, you will understand the difference between the two types of loops used in Python:

**For Loops (Count-Controlled Loops):**A count-controlled loop is one that is executed a certain number of times. In our example, because we know that we need exactly six numbers we are going to use a for loop to repeat (iterate through) some of our code exactly six times.**While Loops (Condition-Controlled Loops):**A condition-controlled loop such as a*While loop*keeps going while a certain condition is true. As soon as the condition becomes false, the loop stops iterating. In our case, when generating a random number, we are going the check that the new number has not already been picked up. If it has then we are going to generate a new one and will carry on doing so till we get a number that has not already been picked up.

#### Check the code

#### Your Challenge

- Complete this code to store your own selection of six numbers. For testing purposes, you can store these numbers directly into the code and display these to the end-user. Alternatively you can ask the end-user to type six numbers.
- Then your code will use the program given above to generate the six lottery numbers.
- Finally your code will check and inform the end-user of how many numbers the user guessed correctly by comparing the user’s six numbers with the six randomly generated lottery numbers!

#### Note

The probability of guessing several lottery numbers is very low. You may want to tweak your program to only pick up numbers between 1 and 20 (instead of 50). This will give you a better chance to guess some of these numbers and hence test whether your code is working.
