how to count characters in strings?
def suggest(product_idea): if product_idea < len(3) raise ValueError("The name is too short") return product_idea + "inator"

Hi there, Julian Eysmont! Counting the number of characters in a string is fairly straightforward. If you pass in the string to the
len() function, it will return the number of characters. For instance:
name = "Julian" print(len(name))
This will print out the number 6 because there are 6 characters in "Julian". I think what you're meaning to do is ask:
if len(product_idea) < 3:
Hope this helps!
