oh ok sorry i m a stupid
thnk u for today tho
I have no idea what has gone wrong here. Not liking the colon for some reason.
Would appreciate any insight on this?
nm silly me I figured it out.
on line 10, what is the purpose of putting “new_word” again before “[1:len(new_word)]”? just asking because that part confused me.
You’re telling it where to cut the new word.
baxter90 What did you figure out? I’m getting the same error.
On line 9 I had not actually applied the slicing to the new_word. Worked fine afterwards.
Thank you, that worked. I’m still curious as to why [1:len(new_word)] doesn’t work as it does in the instructions.I must be missing something.
Hello! I have a question.
I don`t know the reason about difference you and me.
at first, why you use word instead of original in line 7. you: first = word me: first = original 
secondly, why you delete new_word[0:len(original)].
I just follow instructions, but there is no instructions about deleting new_word[0:len(original)].
I really want to know about it, because I am in stuck.
I assigned a new variable “word” because on line 4, I made sure that “original” was letters only and on line 5, i put it in all lowercase letter. If you want to use original, it may not pass if the user puts in random letters and numbers. As for deleting new_word[0:len(original)], when I looked over the code, it doesn’t do anything just sitting there. It’s not performing a function or assigning anything, so it gets deleted. Hope that helps
it really helped me! Thanks a lot
pyg = ‘ay’
original = raw_input(‘Enter a word:’)
if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha():
word = original.lower()
first = word
print s [1:5] new_word = word[1:] + first + pyg print new_word
