Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 50

Tell us what’s happening:

what is wrong with this why wont it print the bottom two lines

Your code so far


# User Editable Region

text = 'Hello Zaira'
shift = 3

    def caesar():
        alphabet = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
        encrypted_text = ''
            for char in text.lower():
                if char == ' ':
                    encrypted_text += char
                else:
                    index = alphabet.find(char)
                    new_index = (index + shift) % len(alphabet)
                    encrypted_text += alphabet[new_index]
print('plain text:',text)
print('encrypted text:', encrypted_text)

Please re-check the indentation of the function.

def caesar(): should be on the same level as shift = 3.

The last two prinf lines should be inside the function, too.

You cannot access variables that are created inside the function from outside the function.
