Hello guys! I just finished my step1 of the Coded Correspondence Off-Platform Project. . I’m glad to hear your advices for my solution. I did it myself but the only problem was the shiftes. I saw only this from the solution (find_index + 10) % 26 and i did not understand it. Can someone explain it? Thank you!
alphabet.index finds the index of that letter ( which is
word[i] ) and stores it as
find_index contains the position of the letter in
find_index + 10 finds what the index would be if shifted by 10
and doing that
% 26 ensures that that number (which you’ll use an an index) is from 0 to 25
(so that there’s no error from having an invalid index).
alphabet[(find_index + 10) % 26] then gets the letter in alphabet at than new index.
decoded_word += letter adds the letter to the end of the string
decoded_word (or rather, it stored a new string that contains the old string and the new letter as
OK, that was really helpful. Thank you!
Are you able to go into this portion a little more? “Next,
find_index + 10 finds what the index would be if shifted by 10 and doing that
% 26 ensures that that number (which you’ll use an an index) is from 0 to 25 (so that there’s no error from having an invalid index).
alphabet[(find_index + 10) % 26] then gets the letter in alphabet at than new index.”
If the index of the letter is at 29 (due to a shift), then 29%26==3. How does the result of the mod (in this case 3) figure into obtaining an index within 0-25. Is it basically stating that you would take the 3rd index to be the decoded character? I’m trying to figure out how this keeps us within the index range.
I could,'t do this one it was so hard. The feeling of that is sad. Even i have some experience in python and do it for 4 -6 months already
