i am trying to get random numbers on the percents at the end on the results heres what i got it works perfectly but the end result is always the same

import random

SERIES = 1000

game = 1

series = 1

while series < SERIES:

teamA = random.randint (1,8)

teamB = random.randint (1,8)

teams = teamA + teamB

if teams == 8:

game = game + 1

series = series + 1

print "In 1000 simulated series Team B won 248 % (SERIES,game)"

print "so I estimate there is a",(game / 20),"% chance they will win"

"the series.`"

In 1000 simulated series Team B won 248 % (SERIES,game)

so I estimate there is a 5 % chance they will win

is what i get everytime

i want to know how to get it to be a random number every time or else match the teachers result becase she got

In 1000 simulated series Team B won 248 series,

so I estimate there is a 24.8% chance they will win the series.

and if any one can please help me i dont know where to start off on here if u start it and leave out a bunch off stuff i can fill the rest in

Write a program that reads in the size of a square and a character and then prints out a hollow square of that size out of the specified character and blanks. Your program should work for squares of all sizes from 1 to 20 inclusive. Here is a sample run of the program,

would you not use 248/1000*100 to come up with the 24.8
