This is my code so far. I'm kind've confused on where to go from here.

def suggest(product_idea):
    if len("product_idea") < 3:
    raise ValueError("Must have 3 characters or more")
    return product_idea + "inator"

Have you tried indenting raise ValueError("Must have 3 characters or more")?

Yes, it just says ValueError not raised.

You also have if len("product_idea") < 3: with your variable name in quotes, and the string "product_idea" has at least three characters. Try changing it to if len(product_idea) < 3:.
