Your code so far


# User Editable Region

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

you did good here

but you need to delete this

didnt work :[ i tried deleteing it

what is your code now? please post that so we can help further

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

this is my code now

the '' is not a space, it’s an empty string, you need a space character in between the quotes

also the content of the if statement needs to be indented, at this time there is nothing inside the if statement, making it a syntax error

Please open a new thread with your code in it.
