Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 39

Tell us what’s happening:

I wrote out this code but it isn’t right? Not sure what else I’m supposed to do…

Your code so far


/* User Editable Region */

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

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

/* User Editable Region */

Hey there @v16 ! You’re so close here! You want to add the char TO the value of the encrypted_text. Right now, you are adding the value of encrypted_text to the value of char (AKA you’re doing it backwards - just flip your variables)

Ohhhh thank you so much
