Hurricane Analysis Project

Hello,

I’m starting the Hurricane Analysis project and I have no idea where or how to start. I feel like Codecademy does a great job of showing you what to do, but when they take away the prompts, you have no clue what you’re doing.

The very first part asks you to replace “B” and “M” that comes after a number in a list using a loop. The “Get Unstuck” option does not provide any detail and I don’t know/remember how to do this. Furthermore, I don’t even know what I would search for online to help me solve this problem.

Any suggestions are welcome, such as: where can this information be found in the Python Codecademy course; what keywords/topics should I be searching for; where on the Codecademy website is there support for this project, etc.

Thanks in advance!!

Hi and welcome @rubycoder10405. It might be worth taking a quick recap of any previous chapters if you’ve found yourself high and dry. Tools like the cheatsheets available for certain sections are useful for this if you just want an overview of the content you’ve been through.

If you hit the syllabus page of your course you’ll be able to see an overview of the topics covered (and in some cases there are links directly to cheatsheets/practice packs).

That particular section seems to be manipulating strings so since I already had this open to check the links I’ll save you the trouble:
Cheatsheet
https://www.codecademy.com/learn/learn-python-3/modules/learn-python3-strings/cheatsheet
Practice pack
https://www.codecademy.com/practice/tracks/learn-python-3/modules/learn-python3-strings

A perfectly reasonable alternative that just about everyone has to do at some point is double check the documentation for the methods associated with a particular object. For strings-
https://docs.python.org/3/library/stdtypes.html#string-methods

If you’re still caught out you can drop a question in the forums or on discord and someone might be able to help you out, the following has some great advice relating to this- How to ask good questions (and get good answers)
