Product Idea code not working

I keep trying but can't get it at all.

suggestinator.py
def suggest(product_idea):
    return product_idea + "inator"

product_idea = input("What is your idea?   ")
return(product_idea + "inator")
if len(product_idea)<3:
    raise ValueError

Hi Brian,

All you need to do is add two lines of code, which includes the if conditional statement that will raise the value error if the length of "product_idea" is less than 3.

If the "product_idea" is greater than 3, the return statement will execute.

def suggest(product_idea):
    if len(product_idea) < 3:
        raise ValueError;
    return product_idea + "inator"

Happy Coding! Heidi
