The challenge asks you to raise a value error if the length of product_idea is less than 3. You are raising a value error if product_idea doesn't equal "yes".

so i need to replace it with a 3 o len(3)

You want to check how long the product_idea is. To check how long it is, you can say len(product_idea)

And then you would check to see if it is less than 3.

so it will be like seggest = len(product_idea) ???

How about:

if len(product_idea) < 3:

ohhhhh i dont know you can do that........ thanks!

it dosent work
