Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 51

Tell us what’s happening:

I keep getting marked incorrect but I don’t know what the issue is. I’m calling the function with the variable text and the number 13. output is correct

Your code so far


# User Editable Region

text = 'Hello Zaira'
shift = 3

def caesar(message, offset):
    alphabet = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
    encrypted_text = ''

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

caesar(text, 13)

Welcome to our community!

Don’t delete the first print call given by default in this challenge. Just add another one following the instructions.
