If you really don't know where to start your homework, then talk to your teacher. That's what they're there for!

you need to learn the language Python to start. Find some Python tutorial and install the runtime.

This crypto algorithm is very simple called caesars cipher where every characters is translated into its "secret". This is easiest done over an array in which the plain table gives the index and the secret table give the character for the index.

example:

an 'c' is the 2 character in the plain table
you get the 'v' as third characters of the secret table
   
This is the same problem as you asked this morning: How do I write a code for this in Python?[^] and the solution is the same, except instead of a "fixed character offset" you need to maintain two indexes and change the offset according to one of them by the "key string".

You aren't going to get anywhere unless you start thinking about these simple problems for yourself - they are only going to get harder as you move through the course!
