Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 37

Tell us what’s happening:

Describe your issue in detail here.

I wrote print(char == ’ ’ above and below the loop with no success. I wrote print(char == encypted_text) above and below the loop with same results. Tried if char == ’ ’ print(char) to no avail. Anything else I should do or not do?

Your code so far


/* User Editable Region */

    text = 'Hello World'
    shift = 3
    alphabet = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
    encrypted_text = ''
    
for char in text.lower():
    print(char == ' ')
    index = alphabet.find(char)
    new_index = index + shift
    encrypted_text += alphabet[new_index]
    print('char:', char, 'encrypted text:', encrypted_text)

Hello dzapasivincent,

Your print statement is fine and on the right place, but it looks like the variables at the top of your for loop are all indented wrong. Is this also the same in your code?

If I use your code, and fix the indentation it passes.
