What is the correct code for this, for inpatient?
Patient admitted for low hemoglobin, discharged diagnosis is bleeding ulcer

This is just classwork, but so far my answers have been wrong.
what have your answers been so far, It would be easier to show you where you went wrong or even if you are wrong. Sometimes the instructor has a bad answer key :)
My first answer was 285.9 for the low hemoglobin
I think the correct one is probably 533.40 (for the bleeding ulcer).
Yes code based on the discharge dx for inpatient facility coding. So the 533.40 should be correct, I did not look up the dx as I did assume you had done so.
