Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 37

Step 37

Now, replace new_char with encrypted_text. Also, modify the print() call into print('char:', char, 'encrypted text:', encrypted_text) to reflect this change.

Can somebody help! what am I doing wrong ? The step 37 asked me to replace ‘new_char’ with ‘encrypted_text’. As you all can see I did what I asked for.

Your code so far


# User Editable Region

text = 'Hello World'
shift = 3
alphabet = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
encrypted_text = ''

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