Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 39

Tell us what’s happening:

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

Your code so far

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

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

Welcome to the forum!

While your solution would be correct in another context, the task wants you to repeat “encrypted_text” in the addition.

You say repeat “encrypted_text” in “the” addition, but there are two “+” symbols on this step.

I am confused.
