The instruction says -
new_word equal to the slice from the 1st index all the way to the end of new_word. Use
[1:len(new_word)] to do this."
So I added
[1:len(new_word)] to the
new_word formula (see below). I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. Anyone?
pyg = 'ay' original = raw_input('Enter a word:') if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha(): word = original.lower() first = word new_word = word + first + pyg new_word = [1:len(new_word)] print new_word else: print 'empty'
