scrabble_score


This is what error get :
Oops, try again. Your function fails on scrabble_score("xenophobia"). It returns "23" when it should return "24".

I know is not perfect :smiley: but
why if i have 2 of same letter the value of that letter is added only once ? how to fix this ?


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 = word.lower()  #turning the word in a list
    total = 0
    r = ""
    for t in (word):
        r += t
    r = list(r)
    for a in score.keys(): #searching in dic the letter from list
        if a in r:
            total+=score[a]
    return total

Look at this line:

for a in score.keys():

you are not iterating through your word.
