Your function fails on scrabble_score("pie"). It returns "None" when it should return "5"


#1



Exercise 9/15:
Output:
Enter the word pie
5
None

Your function fails on scrabble_score("pie"). It returns "None" when it should return "5".


Please help me eliminate the error.


 
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):
    count=0
    word=word.lower()
    for i in word:
        count+=score[i]
    print count
    
words=raw_input("Enter the word")
scrabble_score(words)

That is your problem, if you do not return a value it returns None as a default.
