Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 43

Tell us what’s happening:

I am currently in the process of creating a cipher in Python, and I have encountered some difficulties. The instructions provided suggest utilizing the “+=” operation to add characters to the encrypted text. However, I am experiencing some challenges in implementing this and would greatly appreciate any assistance you can provide. Thank you for your time and consideration.

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