Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 12

Tell us what’s happening:

Describe your issue in detail here.
I tried doing find (alphabet(Text [0])) and nothing seems to work

Your code so far

text = ‘Hello World’

shift = 3

alphabet = ‘abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz’

find(alphabet)Text[0]


/* User Editable Region */

text = 'Hello World'
shift = 3
alphabet = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
find(alphabet)Text[0]

/* User Editable Region */

Welcome to the forum @gamingpc312

The syntax of your code is incorrect so it is failing the texts.
The instructions mention that the .find method goes at the end of the string.

BTW, check the casing on

Happy coding

So the instruction for this challenge is:

At the end of your code, call find() on your alphabet string and pass text[0] to the function.

So, looking at the instructions for this challenge, it says,

1)At the end of your code, call find() on your alphabet string

a)So alphabet is the string variable mentioned

b) And then it says to call the find() function on your alphabet string variable

(basically it’s saying to use the find () function with the alphabet variable)

So the format should be:

variableHere.functionHere()

And make sure to put a period between the variable and the function

  1. The next step is easy, it says,

pass text[0] to the function.

Passing means putting something in between the parenthesis of a function, and,

find ()

is the only function mentioned in this challenge.

Hope this helps.
