Say The Numbers – Sololearn Go Challenge

Issue

I’m currently learning Go using the SoloLearn App.
The Challenge was :
Taking 3 numbers in the range of 0-10 as input and output the corresponding texts in English.
Test Case #1, Test Case #3, Test Case #4 and #Test Case #5 were successful.
But I have problems concluding Test Case #2 and Test Case #6.
Thank you in advance for any help.

package main
import "fmt"

func main() {
   
   for i:=0;i<3;i++ {
   var x int
   fmt.Scanln(&x)

   if (x>=0 && x<10) {
  
       switch x {
          case 0:
            fmt.Print("Zero")
          case 1:
            fmt.Print("One")
          case 2:
            fmt.Print("Two")
          case 3:
            fmt.Print("Three")
          case 4:
            fmt.Print("Four")
          case 5:
            fmt.Print("Five")
          case 6:
            fmt.Print("Six")
          case 7:
            fmt.Print("Seven")
          case 8:
            fmt.Print("Eight")
          case 9:
            fmt.Print("Nine")
          case 10:
            fmt.Print("Ten")
          default:
            fmt.Println("This is not a number or a number between 0 and 10")
         }
        }
        if i<2 {
           fmt.Println("")
        }
       }
   
  }

Solution

Maybe by sharing the test cases would be easier for us to understand whats happening.

But at a first sight I would replace the x<10 with x<=10 and all the fmt.Print with fmt.Println and remove this parts.

    if i<2 {
       fmt.Println("")
    }

If you keep the condition that validates that the input number is between 0 and 10 the message of the default case would never be printed.

And also let me share you another approach of the solution, is the same but with a couple of good practices:

package main

import "fmt"

var validWrittenNumbers = map[int]string{
    1: "One",
    2: "Two",
    3: "Three",
    4: "Four",
    5: "Five",
    6: "Six",
    7: "Seven",
    8: "Eight",
    9: "Nine",
    10: "Ten",
}

func printValidWrittenNumber(candidateNumber int) {
    if stringNumber, ok := validWrittenNumbers[candidateNumber]; ok {
        fmt.Println(stringNumber)
    }
}

func main() {
    inputTimes := 3

    for index := 0; index < inputTimes; index++ {
        var candidateNumber int
        _, _ = fmt.Scanln(&candidateNumber)

        printValidWrittenNumber(candidateNumber)
    }
}

I hope this works and sorry for not being more helpful!
