Tell us what’s happening:

can anyone help me and explain whats wrong with my code?

My code so far

NUMBER_OF_DISKS = 3
number_of_moves = 2**NUMBER_OF_DISKS - 1
rods = {
    'A': list(range(NUMBER_OF_DISKS, 0, -1)),
    'B': [],
    'C': []
}

# User Editable Region

def make_allowed_move(rod1, rod2):
    forward = False
    if not rods[target]:
        forward = True
    elif rods[source] and rods[source][-1] < rods[target][-1]:
        forward = True
    if forward:
        print(f'Moving disk {rods[source][-1]} from {source} to {target}')
        rods[target].append(rods[source].pop())
    else:
        print(f'Moving disk {rods[target][-1]} from {target} to {source}')
        rods[source].append(rods[target].pop())

def move(n, source, auxiliary, target):
    # display starting configuration
    print(rods)
    for i in range(number_of_moves):
        remainder = (i + 1) % 3
        if remainder == 1:
            print(f'Move {i + 1} allowed between {source} and {target}')
            # display our progress
            print(rods)

# User Editable Region

        elif remainder == 2:
            print(f'Move {i + 1} allowed between {source} and {auxiliary}')
        elif remainder == 0:
            print(f'Move {i + 1} allowed between {auxiliary} and {target}')

# initiate call from source A to target C with auxiliary B
move(NUMBER_OF_DISKS, 'A', 'B', 'C')

Move the code nested inside the first if statement (except the first print() call) to your new function.

This means there should only be a print statement remaining in that if function

if remainder == 1:
            print(f'Move {i + 1} allowed between {source} and {target}')
            # display our progress
            print(rods)

Two lines didn’t get moved to the new function
