FAQ: Learn Python - Pyglatin - Break It Down


This community-built FAQ covers the “Break It Down” exercise in Codecademy’s lessons on Python.

FAQs for the Codecademy Python exercise Break It Down:

If you’re given instructions to print a specific string, assign a specific value to a variable, etc., be sure that you match the spelling and capitalization exactly. Often at times if you feel you’ve done an exercise correctly but are getting an error, the error message in the editor will have helpful hints if it was a simple typo, but also look back over your code to make sure you’ve entered what’s being asked for.
For example, if the instructions want you to print “Welcome to Pig Latin!” and you type `print “welcome to pig latin!”, it’ll be marked incorrect!
