Technical Interview Prep: Python Basics - Splitsville
Help, i can’t return the correct keys and values in the dictionary. Any suggestions?
def splitsville(address): keys = "street", "city", "state", "zip_code" text = "100 E Main St, Anywhereville, Oregon, 22222" value = text.split(", ") address = dict(zip(keys, value)) return address

Hey Noor Hafiza Binti Ibrahim, you are SO close.

dict(), wrap the
Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!
