Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 16

Tell us what’s happening:

I’m not understanding what it’s asking me. It says I haven’t declared a shifted variable when I have. Thanks in advanced!

Your code so far


/* User Editable Region */

text = 'Hello World'
shift = 3
alphabet = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
index = alphabet.find(text[0].lower())
print(index)
shifted = alphabet[index] + shift

/* User Editable Region */

Hi there and welcome to our community!

Yes, you have declared a shifted variable, but index + shift should be evaluated within the square brackets.

I legit just solved it and then came back to check the post and you were spot on. Thanks so much!
