# The int object is not iterable - try to learn python

I'm trying to learn python and I made this code to pratice. The objective is to read a list and if number is odd, another list receive it:

``````def purify(numlist):
imp = [] #list that receive the odd numbers
for n in range(0,len(numlist[n])): #travel a list of numbers inputted by user
if n % 2 != 0: #verify if number is pair or odd
imp = numlist[n] #assigns odd numbers to the new list
return imp #return list of odd numbers
```
```

But I'm receiving an error:

``````'int' object is not iterable
```
```

Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance!

If I keep your way of writing this function.

``````def purify(numlist):
imp = []
# numlist is iterable. range builtin would list all integers between 0 and the value.
for n in numlist:
# As pointed out in comments, the n variable will receive each number of the list iteratively. It is NOT the length of the list.
if n % 2 != 0:
# append method will add the element to the list. if you use assignemnt (=),
# your variable imp will become an integer.
imp.append(n)
return imp
```
```

The more practical way to do is

``````imp = filter(lambda n: n % 2 != 0, numlist)  # using a python built-in
```
```

or

``````imp = [n for n in numlist if n % 2 != 0]  # using list comprehension
```
```
