Can you please raise a ValueError if the product_idea is less than 3 characters long? product_idea is a string.
return product_idea + "inator"
raise ValueError("product_idea <3")

You need to code the condition as requested and then raise the exception.
The best place to start is with the documentation that says "The raise statement allows the programmer to force a specified exception to occur." - see Section 8.4
Try inserting an
if statement that checks to see if there are 3 or more characters in the passed parameter, if true then execute the return statement as written. Otherwise raise the value error - which is just
raise ValueError(nothing more is needed). Of course you could also switch the
else around and check the less than 3 characters.
Does that get you rolling - just let me know if you need anything additional.
I've made a function that creates brand new product names using "artificial intelligence".
I have a problem though, people keep on adding product ideas that are too short. It makes the suggestions look bad.
Can you please raise a ValueError if the product_idea is less than 3 characters long? product_idea is a string. Thanks in advance!
.....this is what the real question states... still lost!
