why my function did not return the total of "Helix"?
is there something wrong in 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):
    
    total = 0
    word = word.lower()
    for i in word:
        total += score[i]
    return total        
    
scrabble_score('Helix')

Hi @terablaster94788,

Though you called the scrabble_score function, you did not print the result here ...

scrabble_score('Helix')
