Problem with scrabble_score (9/15)


#1

My code runs on python but doesn’t run here. I don’t know where I am going wrong. Attaching a snippet of my code.

score = {"a": 1, "c": 3, "b": 3, "e": 1, "d": 2, "g": 2, 
         "f": 4, "i": 1, "h": 4, "k": 5, "j": 8, "m": 3, 
         "l": 1, "o": 1, "n": 1, "q": 10, "p": 3, "s": 1, 
         "r": 1, "u": 1, "t": 1, "w": 4, "v": 4, "y": 4, 
         "x": 8, "z": 10}


def scrabble_score(word):
  
  word.lower()
  length=len(word) 
  score1=0
  for i in range(0,length):
    for key,value in score.iteritems():
      if word[i]==key:
        score1=score1 + value
     
  return score1

what is the error message you are getting?

you are converting to lowercase, but don’t save the lowercase of word anywhere? This will create a problem for uppercase letters
