9/11 please help code not working


Whenever I save and submit my code, it always prints out "empty", but the program will let me move onto the next lesson anyways. Is there something wrong with my code?

pyg = 'ay'
original = raw_input('Periodically')
if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha():
word = original.lower()
first = word[0]
new_word = word + first + pyg
print original
print 'empty'


Do you put in any input with your raw_input line? That command takes input from the user. If you do not it will not let you get to the fun of printing out your word.


Try changing from
print original
to print new word

that seemed to do the trick.
