Ervis Meta - SoloHelper , since this challenge has to run with code coach, no extra output can be done except the required value. the task also requires that all punctuation has to be removed from input text, and the result has to be rounded up to the nearest whole number. so your code could not pass the test cases. Suha Akrami , just for your information a code that respects entry level knowledge and has a good readabilty: https://code.sololearn.com/cpXWtiKEudTK/?ref=app

Suha Akrami Use ceil instead of round And get words length without special characters import re from math import ceil #Average Word length statement = (input()) count = 0 char = 0 for words in statement.split(): if words.isalpha: count += 1 char += len(re.sub('[^a-zA-Z0-9\n\.]', '', words)) average = char / count print (ceil(average) )

Why to suffer, try this: e = list(map(len,input('Enter separating with spaces: ').split())) print('Average: %s'%(sum(e)/len(e)))
