OK, I give up. Can someone please walk me through this nested loop and explain how it works? I absolutely do not get it.

What I do know. When I enter a three (as in the example), I see how that makes my block range (1, 4), which would give me three blocks. After that, I'm completely lost. I want to be able to see how it spins through this loop before going further in the book.

Re: Need help with Chapter 11, exercise 11.4
Ok, well, the first 2 lines set up the number of blocks, the third line:
for line in range(1, block * 2)
well, i think the number of lines is equal to the blcok number in.. wait...
Ok, never mind, i'm not really sure either. maybe you should try typing it in and running it yourself and see if you understand then????
