On line 13, assign the variable fifth_letter equal to the fifth letter of the string "MONTY".
print fifth letter equal to "Y" latter of monty
a = "MONTY"
fifth_letter = a
It wants you to print the 5th letter, so just put
Thank you, this totally works, However, i dont understand why. It says python starts counting from 0 and the string "MONTY" is 0,1,2,3,4 characters long, so how is printing the fifth letter even possible? This is my first language btw, so please, if anyone can explain this to me in plain english that would be awesome Oh! wait! i get it.. i think.. so MONTY is 5 characters long, and Y is the 4th letter in the string right? so assigning the variable, fifth_letter =x, to print the 5th letter you need to tell it to print the fourth count in from the beginning?!
string starts a 0th index eg
1st Letter 2 nd letter
0th Index 1st Index
and so on ......
lets say you have a var
var1 = 'Hello World!'
to access "H" in hello world you have to print it like shown below
print "var1: ", var1
because first letter is at 0th index
The answer is
fifth_letter = "MONTY"
