Hi Gabriel,

Try lists of non-numbers as your input, and the error should be a
little clearer to see.  You should see the conceptual error you're
making if not everything in your program is numeric.


    words = ['hello', 'world', 'hello']

First write down what you'd expect to see from this.  Then execute
this snippet.  Does your expectations match what you see?


A main bug in your program is that parts of your program are using
numbers for list indices, and other parts of your program are using
numbers as elements, but there's a little confusion in using one
notion for the other.


Good luck!
