Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 40

Tell us what’s happening:

Explain where im wrong :slight_smile:
Here’s the code ig
text = ‘Hello World’
shift = 3
alphabet = ‘abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz’
encrypted_text = ‘’

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

You don’t need the first line, you don’t need the brackets on the second line.

comparing char with a space (' ')

The brackets here are part of the explaination (as you might use them like this) not the syntax.
