    if product_idea < 3:
        raise ValueError("Oh,No the idea is too short")
    return product_idea + "inator"

product_idea will be a word like 'bacon' so you won't want to try to convert it to an integer. Instead use the len() function to get the number of characters in product_idea and compare that to 3. Ex:

len("Hello")

returns 5
