Oops, try again. It looks like new_word contains "hellohay" instead of "ellohay"!
In the user input i type hello and its suppose to print ellohay but I'm stuck and can figure out why it keeps printing hellohay. thanks for the help
pyg = 'ay' original = raw_input('Enter a word:') if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha(): word = original.lower() else: print 'Empty' first = word new_word = word + first + pyg new_word [1:] print new_word
