Do it for me so I can analyze the code? (Include an explanation of how the code works)

I've completed this one already but I feel like what I entered was a bit off, yet it was accepted. Just looking for some clarification.

This is my code:

def suggest(product_idea):
    if len(product_idea) < 3:
        raise ValueError
        return product_idea + "inator"

I included an if statement to check if the length of product_idea is less than 3 characters. If it is, the program raises a ValueError. If product_idea is longer than 3 characters, no ValueError is raised, and it is returned along with the suffix "inator".

Hope this helps
