Hi, I need some help with my assignment yet again. This time, it's just a simple recursive loop that I can't get working.

I've done most parts but I can't figure out why the "isdigit" isn't working. I want the program to detect if the user inputs anything other than numbers.

If I understand correctly,
if (isdigit(choice))
if choice = numbers, it'll run the program since it's true. However, it doesn't, Instead it runs the else part.

Can anyone point me in the right direction. Appreciate the help:$
