# Middle letter

This a problem set for you to work through [1]

This is a problem set. Some of these are easy, others are far more difficult. The purpose of these problems sets are:

1. to build your skill applying computational thinking to a problem
2. to assess your knowledge and skills of different programming practices

## What is this problem set trying to do

In this example we are learning about strings and basic math.

## The Problem

You are going to be given a word. Your job is to return the middle character of the word. If the word's length is odd, return the middle character. If the word's length is even, return the middle 2 characters.

For example:

```myString = "Torun"
```

...should return r, as 'r' is the middle character.

## How you will be assessed

Scope

• To what extent does your code implement the features required by our specification?
• To what extent is there evidence of effort?

Correctness

• To what extent did your code meet specifications?
• To what extent did your code meet unit tests?
• To what extent is your code free of bugs?

Design

• To what extent is your code written well (i.e. clearly, efficiently, elegantly, and/or logically)?
• To what extent is your code eliminating repetition?
• To what extent is your code using functions appropriately?

Style

• To what extent is your code commented?
• To what extent are your variables well named?
• To what extent do you adhere to style guide?

# Thank you Merri!

myString = "Toreun"

while myString:
myString = myString[1:][:-1]
if len(myString) == 2:
print(myString)
elif len (myString) == 1:
print(myString)
```
