Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 37

Tell us what’s happening:

Describe your issue in detail here.
the task is to print the result of comparing char with an empty space. Use the equality operator == for that.
i print the comparison , still it doesnt pass!

Your code so far

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)

/* 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)

/* User Editable Region */

for char in text.lower():
    print(char=='')

Hello Nik,

Right now you are printing a comparison that compares char with an empty string. If you wish to compare it with the space character you will have to add an actual space between the single quotation marks.

ohh did work now, thanks!
