Any suggestions? This works in iPython Notebook but not Codecademy.
can you put your code here?
I reposted it above. Can you see it now?
try to return the new_word instead of print it
That worked! Thanks so much! Is that just the way codecademy works?
returning the new_word will give the
new_word as a token back to its caller this will allow code academy to get that token and test it but when you
print it there is no way they can get a hold of it and test it against the expected result
Would someone please explain why index = -1 before entering the for loop?
I DO understand why you would want to subtract 1 from index through each iteration of the loop. However, I DON'T understand why it is set to -1 to begin.
