Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 41

Tell us what’s happening:

I’ve been stuck on this question for the past hour as I cannot figure out what is wrong with my code. Every video I see about this question, my code should be working, but it is not. The question is: At the beginning of your loop body, print the result of comparing char with a space (' ' ). Use the equality operator == for that.

Your code so far


# User Editable Region

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

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

Welcome to the forum @theodoreduckworth

Remove the space after the colon.
This is a bug in the tester.

Happy coding
