Fixing TypeError in Raise Challenge

So the challenge is asking to raise an exception if a product_idea is "3 characters or smaller" in length. My code I imagine would look like if product_idea <= 3: <--(I know this is the problem spot) raise ValueError("Idea is too short to understand, please give a more detailed description of idea.") Is converting characters into a numeric value a solution? If so, how do I go about doing that?

Thank you Alex. That was a foolish question, I should have known that one.
