Summary

## Instruction

Good job! In the previous exercise, you could see that values were aligned to the left, which is the default behavior. We can change alignments using < (explicitly align to the left), ^ (align to the center), and > (align to the right). Take a look:

user_name = 'Kate'
greeting = 'Hello {:^10s}!'.format(user_name)
print(greeting)

Result:

Hello    Kate   !

## Exercise

           --MENU--
Each starter             25.00
Each main course         60.00
Each dessert             35.00
Soft drink:              15.00

1. The --MENU-- string should take up 30 characters and be centered.
2. Menu items should take up 25 characters.
3. Prices should take up 5 characters, including 2 digits after the decimal point.

### Stuck? Here's a hint!

Use the following for loop:

for key, value in menu.items():
