I don’t have any error messages. This is a general question.
Whenever python is asked to iterate through a word letter by letter and evaluate that letter for something, where does python start? Does it start with the first letter or with the last letter?
I’m asking because I remember one of the exercises was related to numbers and a solution was to tell python to take the last digit and add it to a total, then shorten the number and loop through again.

``````
`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):
new_word=word.lower()
total=0
low=len(word)
while low>0:
for c in new_word:
total=total+score[c]
low=len(word)-1

``````

you can simply use a `print` statement for checking

``````for c in new_word:
print c
``````

Thanks. After I crashed my computer several times, I think it starts with the first letter.
