Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 16

Tell us what’s happening:

Hi, I am not sure if I understand the question right.
I think I have to have a value equals to shift + alphabet in index
and it should be 10 (7+3)
I can’t figure out which step I was wrong…

Your code so far


# User Editable Region

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

# User Editable Region
