Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 55

Tell us what’s happening:

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, shift)
please help

Hi @emper.amaru,
You should click reset ad try again.
Just as you you created the last call on the function ceasar. Do another one below it. But this time instead of shift use 13.

:+1: Happy coding.
