Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 4

Tell us what’s happening:

Step 4
Each string character can be referenced by a numerical index. The index count starts at zero. So the first character of a string has an index of 0. For example, in the string “Hello World”, “H” is at index 0, “e” is at index 1, and so on. Each character of a string can be accessed by using bracket notation:

my_string = ‘Hello World’
r = my_string[8]
Now, instead of printing text, print just the character at index 6. your issue in detail here.

Your code so far

my_string = "Hello World"
r = my_string[6]

Welcome to the forum @rubyrue

Your code contains code from the example.

Please reset the step and read the instructions carefully.

Happy coding

W = ‘Hello World’

p = W [6]

print(p)

Each way i put it, it keeps tell me that i need to pass text[6] to my print() function.
what does that mean please?

You’ll need to reset the step, then pass the required code into the print function.

In the console, the print call will display in the preview.
