In the context of this exercise, if we have escape characters in a string, how are they counted towards the length of the string?
Escaped characters in Python only count as 1 towards a string’s length, like a single character would. So, for the escape character
\", this will actually only count as 1 towards the length, rather than 2. The backslash isn’t counted.
# Because \’ is an escape character, it will only be # counted as 1 toward the length of the string. message = "I\'m hungry" # length is 10 (includes the space character) print(len(message))
