Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 39

Tell us what’s happening:

This is not passing though im getting correct output.

Your code so far


# User Editable Region

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

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

Hi there and welcome to our community!

Also, modify the print() call into print('char:', char, 'encrypted text:', encrypted_text)

Your print() call does not exactly match this.

I did that and it does not proceed what should I do is it a bug?

No, there isn’t a bug in this lesson. Could you share your updated code please?

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

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

I’ve edited your code for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (').

there should be 4 lines inside the function, it seems you are going a bit too fast… why did you add the if statement?

Thanks for telling they are different (i don’t wear specs)

Looks like you are back to your original error.
