Python Python Basics Functions and Looping Raise an Exception

Help me

I don't understand how I am doing this wrong

def suggest(product_idea):
    if priduct_idea >3:
        raise ValueError ("Thanks in advance!")
    return product_idea + "inator"

1 Answer

There are three things wrong with this statement

if priduct_idea >3:
  1. product_idea is misspelled
  2. You should be testing the length of product_idea. Use the len() function.
  3. You are to test whether the length is less than 3. You have greater than 3.
